I have no problems with this image or others in the same style. I would need to see the entire body of work from this series to be able to have a better grasp of what they're trying to say.
I would hazard to guess there are probably just as many photographers who find the sharpness and detail of some photographs (let's use trees and rocks as an easy example) to be tiring and without merit and done to death. Doesn't mean it's bad, just different strokes kind of situation.
I just want to see engaging photography no matter what style the photographer works in.
