Conflicted Interests
Posted By: nomadkng, 06-10-2016, 04:40 PM

I'm generally past the stage where I get emotionally invested in any photo I take. But perhaps that's the case with this one.
I find it subtle and artsy and full of sensory impact.
My in-house critic is rather blasť. Normally I'm the hyper-critical one, so when we differ like this, I get concerned.
Is the photo a "meh" or "cool"? A "nice idea, but not quite" or a "unique perspective and approach."

My opinion is the execution of the photo is wonderful. Can't ask for much more than that. At the same time it seems to be lacking a bit of content for my tastes.

My in-house critic

Ha, I feel you--my wife consistently prefers my "urban" shots, which I take mostly to kill time (and my "nature" shots usually get a cool reception, no matter what kind of brier-patch I crawled through.)

At any rate, those long tele's make for great "bloom" shots--I'd love to have an F300/4.5 in my bag if I could get it to the top of the hill. In this case, I'd be curious what a monochrome treatment and a square crop would look like.
