Well, unfortunately, ratings don't go from 5 to 10 -- it's not that I'm being a prick, I just don't think there's anything worth looking at. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever rated one of that user's photos previously, although I do remember you
grilling me for rating one of your photos lower than you thought it was worth.
I don't think it's proper to rate someone above a 5 (which, by definition, should be a remarkably average photo) it it's not very good. Consider, also, that's it's only my
opinion and you're very welcome to give someone charity points to make them feel better if you'd like. Photographers benefit greatly from critique, and rejecting it (good or bad) is usually just ignorant. If you don't like a photo, say so -- but explain how it could be better, or offer some technical advice (ala my comment on the missed focus in his bottle shot).
