Re: My own taste varies quite a lot

This is an interesting thread and has demonstrated the wide variety of views among photographers.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who feels that way.

Just to add a further twist to this discussion: I find that my own views are by no means unchanging and can vary quite a lot according to the circumstances.

I have found that once I share my photos, in some cases, but not all, the feedback I get does influence my own opinion of the photo.

There have been some photos that I just kind of threw out there to see what kind of reaction I would get. In some cases they have been received very well, and now I have a hard time remembering why I didn't love the photo initially.
