Interesting topic with infinite answers

I don’t like any of your three shots and if they were mine, they would all be in the waste bin. Oops sorry about that you’d better read the rest.

I’ve seen some shots from you that I really like.

I fully expect that if I showed you three random shots from me you might feel exactly the same.

So what does that mean, it’s all personal. We don’t all like the same music, art or tv programmes so it stands to reason that we don’t like the same pictures. Slight caveat in that people on these forums tend to evaluate technical points that the man in the street might not see or care about but even within this group one person will be forgiving about one flaw that another finds offensive.

There is one exception and that’s the total wow picture. There aren’t many because it has that extra something that makes it really special. Even then someone won’t like it.
