I recently saw the question How many photos should I take If I'm given a camera to take a picture?, which asked a general question about how many photos to take if given a camera.
However, I saw that none of the answers addressed the case where the camera in question was a traditional film camera, rather than a digital camera or smartphone. In particular, most of the answers suggest taking multiple pictures, which is very much feasible on a digital camera, but not feasible and potentially inappropriate with a film camera (tl;dr each exposure used has a direct cost to the camera owner).
So I asked a similar question, How can I find out how many photos I should take If I'm given a film camera to take a picture?, which asked a similar question, but explicitly specifying that it's a film camera, and also slightly changing the question so it's more goal-oriented and less subjective (rather than asking "how many photos to take", I instead asked "how do I find out how many photos I should take"). I also took care to explain why it's not addressed by the earlier question. Despite that, it wasn't received positively and attracted close votes as a "what should I do" question, which this is not.
Why was my question negatively received and close-voted, while the other question was positively received and was never close-voted despite having a slightly more subjective question? What can I do to improve my question?
