No matter how we feel about the technical quality of the images, the aesthetic component is unquestionably very good.
John, I agree that the esthetic component of the pictures is excellent. But I don't think you can write off the technical component because you like the esthetics. With street photography you often can, but not with landscape.
Two observations, one of which is a parable:
(1) I have a friend who exhibits and sells photographs at art fairs. In fact, he's downtown in an art fair today. A couple years ago I stopped by his exhibit and, after walking around and examining his work, which, from the standpoint of esthetics was quite good, I said, "You've pushed the color saturation a lot since last time I saw this stuff." He replied, "Yes, and my sales have doubled."
(2) A friend was watching a cabinet maker finish the inside of a drawer slot, a spot that would be covered up once the cabinet was completed. The friend said, "Why do you go to the trouble of finishing that slot? Who will know?" The cabinet maker raised his head, looked at his friend and said, "I will know!"
