As a reader, I appreciate the opposing viewpoints. Frankly, I didn't find the initial criticisms to be particularly negative or personal. When posting images here, one should be ready for criticisms, not just compliments. It may be educational not only for you, but also the rest of the audience.
As a hobbyist, I dabble here and there just for fun. I get bored easily with post-processing so that is usually a weak spot in my photography.
The comments on post-processing, skin smoothing, cropping, etc were helpful to amateurs like me in the audience. On cursory examination, I found image #1 aesthetically pleasing but the rest was rather monotonous. These comments helped me to evaluate the images in a more critical manner and to understand why I liked or disliked particular images.
