How does the fair use law work?

Question Details: I was giving a online critique of a photographer who was using live animals in her photos and she threatened me with a lawyer and a cease and desist. In accordance to fair law I was not breaking any of the copyright infringement laws and was wondering if she could actually do anything at all? Fair use allows me to use her photos as long as I don't sell them, remove her watermarks or alter the photos in anyway, which I did not do. Can you help me out please?
