Let's take this for what it is... The point of these assignments are to focus and sharpen your photography skills by participating in a friendly, zero stakes competition.
At least on anything I post, trash talking, psychological tricks to encourage voters to look elsewhere and passive aggressive manipulation are strongly encouraged! (Even though I don't think Greg had those intentions)
Everyone has a right to their opinion of the images, the intent, whether it fits the assignment and whether they are good or bad... I think discussion of these things, regardless of what it might say to voters, is a healthy part of learning and growing and becoming better photographers. I would rather gain insight into what people think of an image than garner additional votes, which ultimately gain me absolutely nothing, even if I were to win.
It is the internet, and offense should be taken lightly, but let's not be silly here and be offended or concerned about comments on pictures... I think we should view the other posters and entries as opportunities to learn and share and comment and appreciate as opposed to 'opponents.'
But you better believe the next picture posted by greg is getting a caps lock "THIS IS CRAP" comment just to be funny.
