The problem is that some people "get it" and many people don't. Those that "get it" can recommend improvements but comments from those that don't get it are not usefull. Sometimes almost nobody gets it.
I don't get many of the paintings that I see. So much of the photography I see is illustrative rather than meaningful on several levels. It is those deeper ones that often puzzle people. Sometimes other artists are the worst source of feedback. I have a friend that got me into a local gallery that is very good at what he does. When ever I do something other than a straight landscape, he doesn't get it. I break a few rules now and then - It takes an open mind to see the benefit and sometimes it is the least likey person who can appreciate it.
