I'm going to be totally honest (because I think you'd rather have honesty than BS) and say those are all very meh. I don't have anything against playing with a camera, but that's obviously what that is.

There's nothing wrong with playing (that's the best way to learn how to use a camera), but any time you're taking shots with lighting like that it's playing with the camera more than photographing something. There's nothing wrong with a P&S camera either. SLRs are cool and all, but about the only thing they really have over point and shoot cams is that they are easier for an experienced photographer to get an exact setting. The image quality is second to your ability to use a camera well.

I think this explanation is the best: The best Digital SLR in the world shooting crap is still only taking the best looking shots crap in the world. Your crappy little P&S cam taking a picture of the most amazing sunset you've ever seen is still taking a photograph of the most amazing sunset you've ever seen. Your camera can not make up for, or stop you, from being in the right place at the right time.

I think I'm going to put that in a sticky or something.

dont you think you are being just a little too hard on him? i mean, this is an open photography forums and all; everything doesn't have to be perfect or professional. even newcomers should have a chance to get decent critique that won't put them off, but rather encourage them to take better photos. i see your point about what makes a good photo, but there's no need for being abrasive and belittleling towards another member because of the work they posted. there's enough elitism on the forums already.
