and I know that I have actually seen mistakes in the photos that I never noticed IRL. And places where I could do better. A completely new way of looking at things.

Well, Mary Corbett has discovered the same thing, with even more importance to her as a designer (and to us as stitchers)! You can see details in how things go together in OTHER people's work!

I think it would work for ALL of us --- not just people who are into gold work or silk ribbon embroidery!

WOW! What an interesting thought. I too see things that I think worked well or need to be changed when I take a picture. These would be things that I didn't see just looking at the piece.

Thanks for bringing this up!
