I’m not sure how often I’ve written that here, but it does bear repeating at times. Recently a comment was made on an image (yes it was mine) that went something like this…
‘Nice photograph, I would crop a little closer to see the detail. It still looks good on my phone though’. I thanked him for his comment.
Of note here, this was not a Facebook group of amateur photographers. The key word here being ‘phone’.
I don’t remember what the photograph was, or the subject.
My own feeling is a photograph is the sum of all it’s parts. That’s a Heron above, but it’s just ‘big bird’ without the context of the world he lives in.
