Could someone introduce me to why so many thinks he is great. Just give me your opinion. I may discover something.

The decisive moment. Dont look at HCB's prints as works of art, but as microsecond slices of life that have been captured flawlessly. Like in many fields of photography, many times we see work from other people and we say to our self, "hell I can do that if I had.....(fill in the blank)" Only to later try it and fail miserably. WHat he did, like many masters, looks easy, but it is certainly not. His genious was not photography, it was capturing the emotions of everyday people without needing an explanation.......
