You could have fooled me with this example.

This is due to your Pavlovian way of looking at the railroading world through a lens, brought to you by the folks at RP.
Quite the contrary. They rejected it didn't they?

There is no understanding of the purposeful juxtaposition of light and dark, no comprehension of complex compositions, or artistic expression.
How dare they strip you of your artistic license to deliver us poorly lit, basic compositions under the guise of Art...

Only rigid standards that result in uniform compositions and that certain 3/4 look that people have come to know and expect.
Like your shot, except with better lighting?

Hence the reason why a great number of the images posted on any given day, all look alike.
You've got me there.

Imagine what the world must have looked like before the cookie cutter images became the accepted way?
So give them something quality that breaks the mold. Shooting standard stuff from the dark side doesn't cut it IMO.
