And saying that you are the only one around your horse isn't an excuse. Find someone that can take the pictures or hold your horse while you take them. Posting bad pictures just waste's peoples time.
The other thing that is a bit irritating is all the "well I don't know about critique but he's a pretty horse' comments. This is a critique section. Pretty horse comments should probably go in the horse pictures section. I like reading other critiques to see if they fall in line with what I see, but when there are a bunch of useless comments it's really irritating to wade through.
This link has some really good info on taking pictures. And thanks for starting this thread. I just PM'd the Admin about these issues in this section recently!
