    I think this should be in snapshots/bloopers

    but what if it's not a blooper, or a snapshot, but a carefully composed and executed piece of work?

    Im sorry but it looks very very far from a carefully composed and executed piece of work. It has very bad composition, bad background, it's very grainy, the subject is centered and cut off at the knees. There is too mush headroom. WHite balance is off and its out of focus. There is some distracting black thing jutting into the lower right hand corner, and a distracting green light in the lower left hand corner. This picture is not carefully composed.

    But what if I intentionally cut off the knees, set my lens to manual focus and focused at the minimum distance at f/2.8, left too much headroom, shot at ISO 1600 and pushed the exposure almost 2 stops, and set my WB to cloudy?

    What about this guy?

    Could it be a 'visual artist statement' of sorts?

    But what your say is "What if" the fact is you didn't. Its a snapshot. YOU didn't someone else? Maybe.

    It's a rhetorical question, this whole shot was set up to be a 'disaster'. I did everything in this intentionally.

    This whole thread is a statement to what everyone said about rob's images. what if, like my image, it was completely intentional to stir things up and question what makes a 'good' photograph?
