Most people who try to share their ideas end up blocked by people not really buying in. It's extremely frustrating as feedback is often vague and biased.
Put color in your ideas! Take a little extra time to create a beautiful design before you show your ideas. If you have a priority call to make between a sound plan and a good design, choose the latter as once you've marked the reviewer's eye you'll have more chances to start a discussion that will eventually go to the sound plan.
Worse that could happen is that you have a great idea that nobody wants to see as it's, well, still a bit rough. Easy solutions exist for websites, go and have a look at gradient animator for instance.
