I am thinking in the context of ...@sorce ...one has to understand critique is just another ones opinion. As we all have our favorite artists. Critique is good to chew over. If it lines up with what one sees as their vision. Then great! If not...no biggie...but it offered possiblities one may not have considered...and improved their tree to their liking as well.
Why is it so hard for this site to be productive?
The reason for the reason for the reason for this thread if you will....
Technically, unsustainable branch structure isn't something that can be "critiqued". It is a requirement, so the tree to make it to a place of being critiqued.
Then we have an uncritiqueable juniper. The only thing we can critique is the work itself, not the tree. I think we overlook these truths, which is why we remain unproductive as a whole.
