You're welcome Keith.  It didn't feel appropriate for me to do evaluations.   It requires someone with your depth of both technique and aesthetics to bring it together right.   I continue to feel inspired and humbled by the the work people put into the mix, and regular visit helps me be more versatile, I hope.  
My regrets are that I haven't really applied myself properly over time, learning the assignments in more depth.  The line you came up with some time back "Don't prove, improve" keeps going through my head.

Oh, but I do feel that you have the right qualifications to provide feedback on the images.  Your images prove that you have a very strong understanding of aesthetics, and obviously a good understanding of the fundamentals and techniques provides a foundation for all of your creative work.  Your images continue to inspire me and others.  I certainly appreciate all the time both you and Michele have put into keeping the assignments going.  Thank you!

I completely understand how Dave feels but I agree with Keith.  I also feel you have the understanding and knowledge base to be able to evaluate the photos.  Your comments and advice on my photos have helped me and your photos are awesome!  However, I get it.  Anyways, it's really fun helping out although I think my assignments are not very informative.  I have another one that I researched a bit better than this one (reflections and distortions) but it's not quite finished yet.  It will be by the time we finish this assignment.   Turns out reflections are tricky.   :)
