photoblog image what is your point of view?

what is your point of view?

This shot is simply a way to express how photobloggers see different pictures and have very different opinions and views. Apart from the well known rules or will I say guidelines we follow in photography there will still be taste deviations . While some folks like dark shots some don't, while some like colored shots some prefer mono or duotones, while some like grainy shots some don't but in the end it's all about your point of view!

Great artistic approach to making that statement. Excellent job.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Clint!
Wonderful shot to go along with you sentiments.

Imagine how boring it would be if we all thought exactly the same? and had the same tastes?
Dotun Ayodeji: Oh boy, that will be a very boring world, thanks Laurie.
Excellent work, Dotun! The DOF is perfect and I see some dark humor in the fact that the glasses are presumably constantly at risk of being run over by a truck. It is a thought provoking image when put together with the title and your write-up.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Martin, you are so kind.
I like that Dotun smile
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Zebigleb!

if you had put the glasses on a newspaper, it would have had 'Awolowo' written all over it....
very nice, i like it.
Dotun Ayodeji: Coming to thnk of it, you are almost right, Awolowo's was a bit thinner on the frames, but nice comparison.

You have become very philosophical with this, Dotun, in a fantastic way. We all love it, I see. smile Actually, we all need to be reminded that we're all artists with every photo we take. How I do my art may be very different from how you do yours but we can certainly learn to appreciate it in each other!

Well done!
Dotun Ayodeji: There is no better way to put it Ginnie, you are right. Thanks as usual.
That's an interesting perspective Dotun smile
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Chris!
And that's the great thing about Shutterchance - it allows us to view an enormous variety of images be they B&W, colour, abstract...
Dotun Ayodeji: Yes, indeed.
did you see clark kent shortly before this shot? good work/statement...
Dotun Ayodeji: No, I didn't, but I just did and yes the frames look very similar, thank you.

My one daughter would say "And your point is ...?", which she says right after you made your point. Pointy story provoked by your pound of point. Yes we all have preferences and so it should be - i agree.

And in my case i would like to hear another persons point of view. Josie once told me there are two people involved in a photograph - the photographer and viewer. I think it was quite a strong statement. (This is just by way of adding to your statement).

PS. pick up the glasses, they are gonna get run over.
Dotun Ayodeji: I like the saying from Josie, thanks Louis.
