I believe we are comparing plums and apricots. My expectations of the photos found in most journals is a documentation of the journey. The photos are often posted after a long day on the bike, by people who really don't want to spend a lot of time posting artwork. It is one thing to post a photo straight from the camera (plums), and posting photos on a website after spending a lot of time post-processing (apricots) to come up with a more visually pleasing photo. Producing a pleasing picture and doing it in the field are not mutually exclusive, but is a lot more challenging.

I'll take the photos that tells me the story, rather than artwork that is pretty, but doesn't say anything.

str, Your last photo (plum), post #110, in the "Show us your tent", thread is nothing like the photos you posted on the touring picture thread. IMO it is within the range of the type of photos found in many of the CGOAB journals. BTW you do post some very visually pleasing photos (apricots)
