liked your water droplets photos so much that i decided to go to your web site. Interesting thoughts on forum etiquette. Though i have been visiting canon rumors for awhile, i just recently decided to become a member. Like you, i think about the psychology/ego/nature of forums. I personally enjoy many of the sometimes fantastic photos that some members post, including yours & try not to be critical unless a poster asks for constructive criticisms. I just dont respond if i dont like someones photos, and respond in a positive way if i do(dont know if anyone cares about my opinion anyway). But also, i am learning much about the technical aspects of potography from some of the more experienced/technically proficient photographers and enjoy the debates about various subjects. Anyway, i am more interested in the artform aspects of photography, and think your waterdroplets photos are fantastic. There are probably other threads on this subject--i remember one photo by Neuro of a waterdroplet that was great, but cant remember what it was. I wouldnt get too upset if i were you, and enjoy the fun of photography & think of the forum as another sharing/learning source.
