The goal of our Critique Teams is to provide guidance to the participants whose work is being critiqued and also to provide a learning experience for all our viewers.  This unique approach is something that to the best of our knowledge is not offered anywhere else on the web. We hope the following critique offers suggestions that all our readers can build upon.

This Critique Team consists of following three members; Mike Stafford, Richard Kennedy and Mike Foster.  During the formulation of their critiques, each evaluator acts independently and without consulting the other evaluators.  Each completes a separate Evaluation Form based on their personal experience, style of turning and perception of the work presented.  The evaluations are then compiled and presented in narrative form.

In most instances, the opinions of the three evaluators will differ, and in some cases, perhaps even seem to be in conflict.  As one might realize, that is exactly what happens when the public views your work!  Some may love it - some may hate it.  In this case, however, the result should be taken collectively in an effort to offer genuine guidance on how you might improve your work.

A good critique should “enlighten and inspire” and that is the team goal in this effort.  Simply stated, the evaluators “want you to succeed!”  In providing an honest and constructive critique, the evaluators may point out features of the work they find in need of improvement, but do so in a manner that will provide guidance for you to avoid repeating less desirable features.
