I occasionally take a good photograph, more by chance or luck, than skill, and do comment on entries in the weekend competition, but ...
I have no proper training and am trying to teach myself; I cannot comment on technical aspects of a photograph, unless something is blatantly wrong, or obviously brilliant. I can say what I like, or don't like about it and that's about it.
When a 'proper' photographer critiques a photo, it often opens my eyes to things that are there, but I simply did not 'see.'
This is one of the reasons I miss some of the 'old guys,' the more experienced photographers, who left the 'weekend competition,' after the last fall out over pp.
And of course, I miss their entries!
So yes, for me, a constructive comment from a 'halfway decent' photographer, is worth getting.
