Thank you all who gave me some of your time and brainpower.

I'm going to try to synthesize an alternative image from the conversation, and take a crack at it tomorrow at roughly the same time and place. I'm excited!

(If Rob C is happy being comic relief, I am happy to have him as comic relief)

Riaan, what was it you claimed?

Seems like talking about a photo is way way too difficult for Rob C.


Oh Isaac, you're too kind!

On the other hand, sometimes a photo offers little about which to talk, but why should that stop some of us from trying to trawl for that je ne sais quoi that might just be the little lost pearl glistening upon the mudflat? Unfortunately, as you've often discovered for yourself, it isn't.

;-(

Somewhat intriguing, but too obscure (both literally and figuratively) to maintain the attention.

... but why should that stop some of us...
A scintilla of consideration.

Now you understand why I believe that all 'critique' is nonsense?
Now I understand your comments in "User Critiques" to be drumming home that point. Whatever.

Finish the context: you'll see that consideration has nothing to do with it. I'm actually suggesting that there's nothing amiss with looking for something in pictures, but don't feel upset if it isn't there. The consideration, in the sense you chose to use the word, perhaps lies in not offering any criticism about the picture itself?

Whatever? Quite.

When we have nothing to say about the picture, consideration for others would suggest we have nothing to say in "User Critiques".

Isaac, I think I'll simply say goodnight. Out of consideration for you, of course.

Goodnight and goodbye, Isaac.
