I alternate between thinking of the planet as home - dear and familiar stone hearth and garden - and as a hard land of exile in which we are all sojourners.

    This "tanked" because it has no content: it is pure design, and the design is someone else's intentional design, so you get almost no credit - okay, 1 point for the diagonal composition. The main window thing seems too sharpened, especially in contrast with the blurry thing. Can I say it? It's sort of ugly. And most importantly, from my point of view, it has none of your character and insight in it. There. (I didn't like being so frank, frankly.)

    You da' man Aaron. Just some great feedback. When I first saw this in post, I was completely in love with it... all glowy and warm. Now, in the light of your words, I see exactly what you are seeing. There is no way I could ever have moved beyond my little bundle of Id interpretation of this image without them. This is the quintessential example of when things that call my name (stained glass, beads, vintage furniture, low light) hindering me artistically. Sometimes giving into that is good. Sometimes, not so much. You're a good guy.

    Another thought Aaron ~ Some hours later it occurred to me, another reason I liked this image was because of what was happening in real time... great conversation with the shoppe owner, afternoon sun, confined space that seemed perfect for tea and so forth. The most important thing I take with me after reading your feedback is to stop assuming viewers shared that real time with me. An image must stand on its own merit. With or without a story line, all that will ever be seen is the pixels you present.

    I agree with both of you. Coop, I was initially drawn to the glowy warmth in this image, but in the way of walking into some shop and appreciating one person's design and other individual's arrangement. There is nothing of your heart and soul in this. I've numerous images that on their own are just okay shots, but keep them because of my feelings and experiences associated with them. The very best of them I either have or plan to attempt to convey at least bits of both through artistic processing, which you've done masterfully time and again. Would love for you to rework this image in a way that gives the viewer a glimpse of what you felt when you captured it.

    kil roy ~ One of the funniest things I've read lately. This IS a real pooch isn't it. I love that you would OCD it before you hit the 'd'. You are someone I could do some serious time with. This is sooooo much fun.
