landscape vs food
1

If a landscape photo were half out of focus, you'd think terrible, right. If a street shot were half out of focus, you'd think terrible, I assume.

Then why should a photo of food be half or more out of focus, and if it is, what is artistic about it. If you took two photos of the same plate of food one half out of focus and the other in full focus, why would the out of focus one be more appealing and exemplify art of some sort.
