Nightmare
16

Family having dinner by the sea, early Covid. YOLO Journal was founded by former Creative Director of Conde Nast Traveler, Yolanda Edwards.

The image is from early in the lockdown when people were supposed to shelter in place etc - and we thought, well that’s a pretty good way to have a dinner out with the family. I don’t know if you can tell in the picture but they had a baby with them too. It was sweet.

Of course when they saw this image the Creative Director @YOLOJournal (created by the former creative director @ Condé Nast Traveler) liked the iPhone image the most (rather than the 50 or so images of the same scene shot on my $4,000 Canon mirrorless camera.) Why? More flare from the cheap phone lens. 
The nightmare bit is that then, to make matters worse they cropped from horizontal to vertical, so this is about 40% of an iPhone 11 image 😂.

TL;DR It's the emotional response that counts x100 more than any technical minutiae.
