I still have a lot to learn and could do with a more critical eye, as far as my own photos are concerned.
I learnt that to the extreme that all my photos were cr*p which wasn't very conjusive, the only way for me to overcome that was to look at the context of how the photo was taken i.e. if it is a holiday snap then probably not too much thought or planning was possible due to having others around and being pressed for time however you can still be critical of core elements such as focus, sharpness of the image, exposure etc and there is no harm in exploring ways the image could have worked better but don't be to harsh with yourself. If however it is an image I had setup and had a particular vision in mind then I will tend to be more self critical again with the core elements but also the finer points. That is how I tend to work now but find it is extremely valuable to look at other peoples work as that is where I have learnt the most.
