When Elamcelt invited me to join the group, she added a caveat "not for the faint of heart".
Today I received two negative critiques of my image "Gnarled tree stump". Both critics were very apologetic, I suppose in case I took offence. But their critiques were given so graciously that it would have been very churlish of me to have been offended.
Another group member disagreed with the two mentioned above, so as always opinions differ.
I joined with the expectation that comments would be honest and constructive.
PS. I don't want to start a discussion, but I couldn't find another heading to post this appreciation.
