    Jesus this place is full of fucking kids who talk shit in every thread, yet half the time they're wrong.

    You're allowed to do this once you've accomplished something, once you are someone, once you actually matter. Until then, take your fucking 40D/XTI and get better yourself before giving out bogus "criticism" to others, you're in the same boat as most of them.

    Fuck off

    I disagree. I've gotten some of my best advice from amateurs or hobbyists who are by far not accomplished or professional.

    If you don't like it, leave.

    I'm talking about people who try to be "elistists". Not people who give honest advice and whatnot.

    Anyway, wow a hobbyist helped another hobbyist, craaaaaazy shit, I guess my argument is invalid

    And by the way, lets not misinterpret this into saying I think I'm some amazing photographer, I'm not.

    But I know the difference between good ones and bad ones, and some people here are in no position to say some of the things that they do.

    By staying ambiguous it makes it easier to back out of arguments without looking like a retard :coolugh:

    Its just sad when 'elitest' get mad and take the holier than thou approach, unlike people like mojito who doesn't do anything but offer advice. I just don't understand what you get out of it other than angry, pointless threads like this. If you don't like the amateurs and their C&C, don't read their comments. Simple.

    I already said, I have no problem with amateurs/hobbyists giving actual C&C. Simple.
