For people who have spent a lot of money on equipment chasing after the ideal of the technically perfect photo, I can see that this image could be somewhat threatening.

I would agree though in some cases THOSE individuals won't be threatened at all because to them it has to be technically perfect before the composition is taken into account. If it's not technically perfect, it cannot be evaluated further.

To them I would say photography is an art, not a science so to think we can somehow measure it technically and assign value that way is wrong headed. I have enjoyed many not even remotely sharp or "properly" exposed images with ACK! soft corners even. Oh, the inhumanity.

Anyway, nice image, Skanter.

Thanks,  ryanshoots. For me, the softness and noise actually add to the aesthetics of this image. I didn't plan it that way,  but discovered that something was there underneath the technically imperfect image, and then continued bringing it out with a good amount of PP.
