I attend a photography class where the teacher lectures on photographic design for a while and then looks over our photographs to make positive criticism. I enjoy photographs such as the ones I am attaching to this post. My teacher usually says that they are very good from a purely design point of view but they do not say anything. I can see his point and I do often try to take photgraphs that 'say' something, but, on the other hand, I really like photographs which are nothing more than pleasing designs. They do not say anything in particular but they make me feel a certain way. Simple curves, for example, give me a peaceful feeling.
I wonder how the Nikonians community feels about this. Does a photograph need to have a message? Or is feeling created by pure design enough to be art?
