A disquieting number of people seem to see, react to, and evaluate a photo primarily, if not entirely, on a set of predetermined, technical qualities—focus, "sharpness," "contrast," "noise," "saturation," etc.

These people seem to scan an image, only looking for one or more of these characteristics that doesn't meet the list of things they've somehow learned that a "good" photography should conform to. Witness how many reactions begin and end with comments like this.

So much more is possible when one frees oneself from this tyranny. You seem to be on the path.

Thank you.  I made similar comments in a recent thread about someone else's photograph.  Art shouldn't have rules.
