Listing of photographic (and SIGrelated) terms and definitions

Your critique did not conform to the photoSIG critique standard because the ratings you give tend to be very high or very low. The standard states that the average work will receive about one thumb-up. (Note that the ratings are not symmetrical; the thumbs-up ratings are intended to be used more often than the thumbs-down ratings.) If you have been giving all the works that you critique three or two thumbs-up, or if you have been giving them all thumbs-down, then your average rating will go outside the standard range. If you have been giving all three or two thumbs-up, then try visiting a photo that is not perfect/flawless and would benefit from a constructive critique on how to improve it. (Note that this does not relieve you of your obligation to be respectful of the artist on whose work you are commenting.) If you have been giving all thumbs-down, then reconsider your rating philosophy; thumbs-down are meant to be used sparingly.
