Comments on landscape photos
I am new to this site and received a 1-star rating & comment on a landscape photo (below) I posted that read “snapshot photo”. When I used to comment on Flickr I always tried to pinpoint a specific aspect of the photo that I thought could be improved and I always gave encouragement to the post-er. One could say something like... needs color balance, subject lacks focus, distracting objects in the way, etc. To say “snapshot photo” is like saying “it stinks”. Maybe it does stink but that’s unhelpful if you don’t say why.
