Do you really see THAT much difference in images?

What Judy said, plus...

In a gallery or museum, or online equivalent, you typically don't have time to give every photo, painting, sculpture or whatever a good long look. So each one gets some seconds...and then those that catch your eye get the longer looks.

Now if you're viewing work you already know it's a different story. But even that stuff had to pass the "seconds" test at some point.

In New York I once went to a Garry Winogrand exhibit three times, and each time photos caught my eye that I'd seen, of course, on the earlier visits...but had missed. I was fortunate to have enough time for repeated viewings. It often doesn't work out that way, and I know I've surely seen, but missed, many fine photos.
