MatthewRogers: So it's reminiscent simply for the fact that it's an exterior photo of a person indoors in a lit environment.

Seems like some people are clutching at straws trying to make themselves sound slightly more intellectual than need be.

It's just a photo of a guy sat inside, nothing more, nothing less. Some of the comments are quite hilarious and pompous to boot.

'...hilarious & pompous too boot.' Totally agree Matthew. In fact, reading some of the comments on this article prompted me to 1) sign up for dpreview & 2) write an entry on my blog about how some people view and interpret images like this. http://davidmbyrne.com/main/2011/10/11/eyeofthebeholde/

Robert Hoy: This is an image I can easily see in an art exhibit. Those that don't "get" this image and what possibilities it lends to the viewer are just into snapping frames and don't have a clue on the artistic side beyond pretty flowers. :)

Well done Barnaby.

'get' this image. What does that mean? Your condescending sympathy towards viewers not as lucky as you in that they don't 'get' wherever they are supposed to 'get' from this is galling.
