I think I have the answer you are seeking. People here are pretty jaded by seeing so many top tier photos, whereas, your friends and family are used to more mundane photos that make yours stand out as being exceptional compared to what they are used to seeing,

There is probably a lot too that, however.. since you made that specific observation...

I know this is my sister and I know it isn't true but she really did say this to me in a recent email... "Your pictures are FAR better than most of the artwork I see on calendars, postcards and even wall art." She was encouraging me to try to make some money from my work.

I know I have a long way to go before I can even consider doing that, but that was her impression.
