The Challenge of Proper Criticism

The only proper criticism of a work of art is another work of art.
--Charles Baudelaire

As a retired portrait and wedding photographer I like to stay involved in matters of the artistic. I participate on and help critique images from photographers who ask to have their images judged. Sometimes I view an image that is so weak that I cannot give suggestions on how to improve it. I can only take parts of their fuzzy idea and try to complete it in a way that makes sense to me and, hopefully, to them. I upload my version of their image and it does become a separate work of art for their consideration.
