You bring a good example Fabrizio.
The connection we have with any photo depends on our emotional and spiritual connection with the subject. It seems to me that you connect with Moonrise.
To an atheist who sees similar scenes driving home from work once a month, like me, Ansel's Moonrise seems pretty blasÚ. Definately no shiver, unless it's cold outside.
I've spent most of my life tramping around Ansel's photographic world. Most of his subject matter is just of places where I've lived, played, and worked.
I do very much understand that Ansel was highly skilled, my interest in his work though is technical, not artistic or emotional.
