Re: Interpretation of images

This point is what I tell people all the time. It doesn't have to be flashy or perfect, but if there isn't some visual draw, a typical viewer won't spend the time to really analyze the image.

Not that there isn't a place for more complex images. The inteligencia certainly likes their own stuff, too.

I think of it like Woody Allen movies vs. Chris Nolan movies. Both are artistic. Both are excellent. The Chris Nolan movie has enough 'mainstream' appeal to get the masses into it, and then he gets them thinking. Woody Allen films are also incredibly artistic, but have a much smaller appeal. Only those who want to be challenged and are looking for an 'artsy' film go see Woody Allen movies (a deep knowledge of 1920-1940 jazz also helps).
