It appears you have received over 120 critiques/comments, but have given less than 20... this site is about participation. You can learn something by looking at other people's photos and see what you think about those, put that in words for them and (hopefully) receive more for yourself in return!

Agreed. Even further, there is nothing people can do to improve their photography that is more effective than looking at others' photos and analyzing what works and what doesn't. When you are looking at someone else's photos, you are more detached and able to look at a photo with less personal involvement. The lessons you learn in critiquing will help you out the next time you are somewhere with a camera in your hand.

I agree totally with what’s been said. Just a very simple example, if you start to critique seriously (not only “nice shot” type critiques) and start pointing out in your critiques that the horizon or the perspective is titled, I assure you that the next time you’ll take photos you’ll start to be aware of this detail and take photos with a better framing. And along with this many other details will be improved as you get aware. Also reading others critiques in other photos than yours will help you a lot, as they point out things that will teach you about the rules of the photography and eventually how to break them sucessfully.

It’s a simple example but true, and I can state this by my own experience.

You won't get much response if you critique people that don't have a silver-star or gold-star next to their name. If there is no star next to somebody's name, either they are brand new to TE or do not write critiques. I generally avoid such people (unless they are new) because I prefer to give to active, contributing members.
