Perhaps, the comments are too harsh?

This is a problem I alluded to above. Where images are recorded merely as documents, there is often the lack of aesthetic clarity. That is, it is obvious and unexceptional.

Is the building the best background? Is it necessary to identify the location as Soho? What quality of winter are you trying to show? What actually is the tree about?

You (the photographer) has to make choices. The process of choosing is a reflection of your ability, training and values. Do a good job, and we are suddenly standing in your shoes. Seeing the world through your eyes.

Looking at something extraordinary.

Paul posted this lovely video of Petersen explaining himself.
