Wow! This critique made me sit back and think. I dragged my camera around town on Saturday afternoon and while I didn’t get any great shots Luis’ words were ringing in my ears. Thanks, much appreciated!
There’s lots of “picturesque”, risk-free, sentimental images….that look like a standardized catalog of themes I can only characterize as “safe” and “pleasant”. They confirm, but do not challenge the average viewer’s expectations of the world.
