I wish people would comment more. It seems that winning photos have so many more comments than ones that don't. It seems people would rather say why they like a photo rather than why they do not.

Nonsense. In your Best of 2005 entry, you found this comment helpful:
she is so cute...
and also this one:
Adorable child!

But you did NOT find this helpful:
Very nice capture--gorgeous expression and great color. It's very natural and simple. I would like to see a bit more light in her eyes. Perhaps a reflector held near her face would have provided more of a catch light in her eyes? Or perhaps a diffused fill flash made by taping a bit of wax paper over the flash (I don't know how sophisticated your equipment is---this is the sort of thing I have to do).

nor this:
Some good use of backlighting, but the red in her skin tones could have been easily fixed in post, and leave her looking feverish. The focus seems just a little too forward of her face as well.

You can fool yourself if you wish, but stop trying to fool us.

I am not trying to fool anyone. I felt and still feel that these comments were due to monitor calibration issues. And as for the red - she is laughing and it was summer - hard to believe her skin would be red. I read every comment and never take it personal so there is no need to get personal with me.

I'm not being personal ... I just wondered why you found several essentially useless comments "helpful" and several obviously useful comments NOT helpful. And one of the comments you dismissed as not helpful was about poor focus - how is that "due to monitor calibration issues"?

Don't get me wrong, though, you're entitled to dismiss ALL comments if you wish. Just don't whine about lack of constructive comments in the forums.
