  • I’ve added dual and triple-screen versions of “Dispersion” to the gallery this morning. There’s been some wonderful suggestions for improving the image in the comments, but I think I’m happy with it as is. Thanks for the feedback though!
  • I mentioned last time that I was at a loss as to why my abstracts are rated lower than the scenery images. I’ve been thinking about it though and I’ve come to the conclusion that scenery images, even though they are art, are more likely to be judged objectively than abstracts. In other words, there is a “right answer” with sceneries and the ratings will tend to be on one side of the scale or the other depending on the merits of the image. Abstracts, however, are judged subjectively. Some people are going to like them and some people aren’t. There’s no “right answer”. Thus the ratings are more spread out and the average is always going to be lower.

    I don’t think this means that abstracts are worse than the sceneries, just that less people agree on what makes a good abstract.

    That’s my two cents any way. What do you think?
