What’s a ‘good’ picture?



There are at least two ways to generate “gigabytes of comments” online, namely by either daring to question anything Flickrites do (which will inevitably result in long “discussions” over there, which for the most part consist of the nonsensical assertion that anyone who criticizes Flickr is an “elitist” [thus mirroring the worst of US politics btw]) or by asking how one can define or decide what good art is. Ed Winkleman is smarter than me and today opted for the latter; those who haven’t seen it might also enjoy reading What makes a great photo?, which I posted here quite some time ago.
