Photo rating - many questions
What's that photo rating thing? What is the aim of this functionality? Photo rating is the first thing on tookapic I do really not like! Who is rating the pics? A robot? Why is it so contradictory? Who decided what a bad composition or a great lightning is? Is a standardised feedback not counterproductive and discouraging if you want want to find your own style? And what, if you do not agree with the rating? Does this mean you are a bad photographer? Imagine all users wanting to take pics that are rated high... Couldn't this lead to photographies that will all look the same way and lack individuality just for pleasing the robot? It may be a good thing to be able to look at the rating myself if I want to get this sorts of a feedback - but am I narcisstic if I feel like it is redundant that the whole community can see how my pics are rated? Can I switch it off?
