That's an impressive collection, Rob. But I didn't see any of either yours or mine.   :(

It's discrimination, pure and simple.

Frankly, I think it's all a ploy to confuse us blessed/cursed with lingering memory. I see one image and think yes! Klein! A moment later I'm not so sure. Of course, that's to be expected: the Internet is for the youthful, virgin minds that think it began last year. Everybody of a certain, younger, age will instantly say "ah, Kim! recognize his work anywhere!" and never give doubt a chance.

It's a pretty complete course in photography in about fifteen minutes.

1. How many of those shots depend for their effect on 'sharpness', or 'resolution'?  Answer: none.

2. I'm very familiar with that music, but if you pair the right music with the right visuals, the impact of both is enhanced. 2+2 = at least 5

That's the thing: some people are obsessed with equipment, sharpness etc. etc. but miss the point that photography, when not strictly commercial (and even then the exceptions are legion), is about some kind of expression; emotion, if you will. As love, it's often best made - and observed, perhaps - in low lighting and anything but hi-fi vision.

Rob,

Are you suggesting that the best photography might take place in the back seat of a '57 Chevy?   ;)

Let's put it this way: if you have to change lenses out on location, then the best place would be in the back of any closed car so you could preclude the ingress of dust, dust which may take photography to unexpected highs or lows, but being out of photographer control, must remain a little bit doubtful as a technique.

There have been some good snaps made from the back seats of cars, young couples on double dates, etc. (a strange, transatlantic custom (rite of passage?) almost unheard of in 50s Scotland, where attention was best focussed on one damsel at a time.  But then, the majority of Scottish teens of that era had absolutely no chance of getting into the back seat of any car, never mind drive one.

It was a part of the American Dream for us foreign kids; not double-dates, but having a car.

It's true of music, too. Some of the most exciting performances I've heard were technically a lot less than stellar but they had a life which transcended the imperfections. Paul Tortelier was famed, at least in later life, for fistfuls of wrong notes but his playing was a joy to hear. I have four recordings of Shostakovich's fifth symphony: by far the best was made live (NYPO, Bernstein).
