after a while i've been in photo.net ,i learn a lot about photography and think i have my work improved but something is really interesting : there are four kind of photos in this site : 1.photos that people rate a lot and rate high 2.photos that people rate a lot and rate low 3.photos that people do not rate a lot 4.photos with fake ratings im talking about the second kind , you suddenly see a very well executed portrait from an old man with beard and the man is not beautiful , the picture is not so manipulated , and the oldman is not sexy ! , and the photo is extremely sharp with very good composition, then you see a lot of people rate this , why ? i think because in their innerselves they think this is a great photo, but when they think about this ,they think so what makes this photo great , this ugly old person ! then they rate it low ! you just put a very beautiful sexy model instead of the oldman and you do not need that strong composition and sharpness for getting a lot of 7/7 .
