All I can think of is money or ego.
I don't think it's a matter of modifying your artistic vision. Those with artistic vision will simply refine it over time. And those without artistic vision won't gain it by following some critic or formula.

To me, at its core, photography is a communicative act. I wouldn't do it otherwise.
