When is it appropriate for a newbie to start to critiquing ?

    As a newbie I feel shy and uncertain on critiquing fellow members images. I also feel obligated to be polite, and to reciprocate to fellow members when they are kind and direct in giving encouragement and advice to me. BUT, I don’t have the experience or technical photography knowledge to do that.

    Do I just say what I see and feel? Or just not say anything? and the fellow members think I am snubbing them?

    Thoughts….

    Any activity is probaly good at this stage.

    How about asking questions rather than making statements?

    I remember that time in my life, when in the 60’s I became a teenager and when my children became teenagers.

    We all made statements…..Noooo

    People love to get comments on their pics? Speak your heart. There are precious few really technical comments on this forum. Most are comments like: I love the colors, great pic. Or, neat composition, or, ‘great action shot’ etc.
    One does not need even a small bucketful of competence to add to such a discussion.
    Go and peruse a more technical forum e.g. BPN, and then when you come back you will find it easy to ‘speak’!!

    Dave I really appreciate all the comments and help that I receive from the community here. All have taught me so much and given great advice, encouragement and direction. For that I am truly grateful. I am looking for direction to reciprocate.

    I will remain shy and uncertain to critique. Please forgive.
