Should we listen to 'critics' or show them the door?

    Reminds me of a saying attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt: "No one can make me feel inferior without my permission.".

    I mainly shoot for myself. I've had shots I really like that others don't, and I'm OK with that. Sometimes people criticize the very reason that I loved the photo! But I welcome any well-intentioned critique.

    It can be like move critics. Sometimes you end up knowing you will like a movie for the reasons the critic says you shouldn't!

    Good article... But I think there is a middle ground.
