    Is THIS a good photo??



    I am curious to see what people think of this photo. There is no right or wrong answer. Interested in seeing why some people like this photo and why some do not. People may have seen this photo before, probably some haven't. I won't tell as I want honest answers!

    There is a Critique Gallery for this sort of stuff. Surly it does not belong in Ethics and Philosophy.

    Personally, I find this stuff fascinating.

    It does belong, I think, in "philosophy" because it directly makes us confront and judge exactly what our craft produces and who better than us, should make determinations what is "good" or not.

    On almost every picture some people will be moved by, some will love it, some will find it a technical masterpiece, some will find it derivative and others will find it boring or hate it.

    That says a lot about us. And our craft.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    If you want to play guessing games, change the file name to something that does NOT say "Eggplant (1929) by Edward Weston"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I bow to no one in my admiration of EW, but this pic does very little for me - it is simply too literal and fails the vital criterion of avoiding the obvious.

    Regards,

    David

    A couple of days ago someone mentioned that it seemed that we were only interested in discussing the technical aspects of photography here.
    Judging by a number of very popular threads recently, it seems that there is a lot of interest and opinions on the creative side too.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
