Let me preface this by saying I'm trying flickr and in doing so I've stumbled across something that bugs me. Apparently one of the following is true: I don't understand what makes a good photo. Flickr awards are a huge joke. Anyone else see what they believe are crap or just snapshot photos that are praised beyond ridiculous and even receive 'awards'? Is it just a big joke or is there a higher scale of photography that I just can't grasp yet? Here are a few examples: Jardin ouvrier / Allotment on Flickr - Photo Sharing! L'arbre penchÃ© / The bent tree on Flickr - Photo Sharing! Tas de pneus / Piles of tires on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
