Re: I would like to discuss the aesthetics of photography...

I was walking through a small town high street the other day and came across a photographer's shop. In the window were some big photos of mountain views etc. Very good work indeed; he had clearly been out during the golden hours and knew what he was doing (or she).

I thought they looked very detailed and unaturally sharp (not over-PS-sharpened either) and definitely not as I would see the scenes with the eye.

There is a certain natural silky smoothness with the eye and digital photos often look too detailed, perhaps they are too detailed. I don't remember seeing glossy film like this.

I wonder too, if we put too much artificial detail in with digital processes.

I think you have a great point here and it deserves more attention.
