While I can’t say that my work is remotely artistic (I’m an online marketing nerd) I can still identify with what you’re saying here. So much stuff is simply in the eye of the beholder – I have the same issues when someone else tells me how I “should” be doing a campaign for a client. Not their their suggestion is wrong necessarily…but neither is the way I decide to do it, either.
Btw, Dave over at Website In a Weekend reco’d you….love your shots! I was always a writer but couldn’t do squat visually, so I’m enthralled with this kind of talent.
