As per the title. I don't get it. I love photographs that mean something to me, that shock me, make me want to keep looking and going back to it. I don't understand why you would cram up your hard drive with photos of an empty coke can on the floor or some tramp sitting in his own excrement? Genuine question, what am I not seeing?

Once the technical factors are in place, everything boils down to individual taste. I find macro photography uninteresting, even though I know it involves a lot of  skill and experience to do well. Each to their own.

Yeah, I get no thrill out of looking at bug faces.

It's nice to say that nice pictures are nice.
