This photo has been used as an example in other threads here. It was sold for $4.3M:

Break open your piggy bank, $4.3M for this one.

It was digitally manipulated to remove dog walkers and a factory building. Over Processed? Too much detail? Not enough detail? Too soft? Exaggerated colours? Does any of this relate to whether anyone remotely likes this photo or not or whether it is marketable?

Wiki states: "The work has been described by arts writer Florence Waters in The Daily Telegraph as a "vibrant, beautiful and memorable – I should say unforgettable – contemporary twist on [...] the romantic landscape"[6] and by journalist Maev Kennedy in The Guardian as "a sludgy image of the grey Rhine under grey skies".[3]"

The well-worn saying about being in the eye of the beholder comes to mind.
