That’s one thing I’m learning about and have forced myself to expect lately: Someone will always find a “flaw”. It may not even be a flaw, per se, but something to improve on or something that fits a certain taste that would make it stellar in that market but isn’t my cup of tea.
I try to be really objective about my work but it is hard sometimes. I really want someone to tell me I did well. I also want honesty, so it can be real difficult at times.
When I critique something, I usually try to be polite, complimenting on the strengths of the image as well as discussing the places where improvements could be made… however… people have a tendency to be nasty and I sometimes get a little mean. Unrelated to their work, though… the last guy insulted me personally, I called him a douche and blocked him >.<
