what makes a photo a "masterpiece".. is it solely having all of the elements of the photograph turn out perfect.. ie. form contrast color focus... and so on???? can an image still be powerful or considered a "masterpiece" if one or more of these elements is off? i have many photos that i have purposely and accidentally disregarded certain aspects, and some have been more powerful to me than those with everything by the books...of course i produce my art as a form of expression, so my belief is that if the photo portrays how you were feeling in the moment you took it, it is a work of art...but thats just my opinion.. is it too distracting to have these elements..."outside the box" if you will....?? what does everyone else think???
