Is it POP Art or Art needs to POP?


Recently I run a test on my own.

TEST SHOT 1.

Picture after processing > drama effect, more sharpness, more saturation, some minor effect

I processed the picture with some drama/ contrast/ saturation effect. So? They ‘LOVE’ it.

TEST SHOT 2.

Picture as came out from camera, after I decided > aperture, timing, white point, brightness, saturation, iso, zoom, framing

Here you can see what I shoot, straight from camera (with all the right setups). And then just a few people ‘LIKE’ it on a social photo network.

FEELINGS.

I feel that if I want people to vote me THEREFORE know me THEREFORE raise my value on online market, I need to (over)process my shots. Even if I prefer the original one.

MY COMMENT.

I feel we cannot imagine anymore, we need a photo to tell us everything. No mysteries.
A blurred, unfocused, dark picture is hard to understand, but leave a lot to us, to interprete, to discover. But probably the MARKET and the ART are still two different places.

YOUR COMMENT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Is this photography or entertainment?
