I should have qualified my "most" statement by saying most of us who have been around for a few years... would have learned about smoothing out water. But then again, it's an assumption that most of us old timers know how to do it.
My exact words on the photo were: "The water is a bit too milky for my taste." The person who posted the photo didn't have a problem with my comment. It was another member who popped in from time to time, rarely posted a photo, but has an "expert" opinion on everything. I found out, later, that several members had blocked him before I joined the forum. I did try to reason, nicely, with him but whatever I said was wrong.
I never attack somebody's work because I don't want to discourage anyone. If I offer any criticism at all, it's constructive.
