I got some great feedback today on my lighting on this image and how to improve. It's great to get good feedback on your artistic work, that you can take in and grow from. Usually I find that feedback on my work intimidating, but criticism done with honest feedback for betterment is wonderful.

Not sure if the following quote fits the above statement, but its cool and I like a lot.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
