Re: Am I nuts?

I suspect that if you broke down the compositional elements, you would find it is ticking all the boxes--rule of thirds, golden mean, etc, etc--and THAT is why you are so drawn to the image.

Perfectly composed, imperfectly executed?

Plus, the camera shake is obscuring all the other nit-picky things, so one can't even judge sharpness or white balance, or all the other things to obsess over.  So in your mind, these are simply dismissed.

Would make a good study for 'Your Bleeped Up Brain' on History Channel, I bet!  I would not be surprised if it lit up the same areas of the brain as a prize-winning photograph, when compared under MRI.

Of course, more so for you, as photographer, and having some attachment to the image.
