In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: I'm not sure why but we (I mean everybody) have a need to rate things, to have an absolute best, #1, #2 and so on. With art, we also need to be told what's best lest we make uniformed decisions on our own.

Photography is really on an upswing, though. Wasn't that long ago that people wouldn't pay because one negative could produce an unlimited number of prints. The nice thing about a fair but not unimaginable price was that ordinary people could collect photographs and do so just because they liked them.

I disagree . art is very subjective - and surely it is up to us to have our own opinions - no matter what they be .
