I rarely get much response for an image like this on either flickr or fotolog. It seems that the ones I respond to best, the ones that I have an emotional attachment to, do not move the general public. I have to remember to be true to myself and not get seduced by the feedback for other, less emotionally honest images. It's very easy to want to please the crowd - keep those comments and favs coming - and lose sight of how I really want/need to express myself.
Someone on flickr commented that the image isn't sharp and therefore less than it could be. I don't understand this fixation on sharpness. To me, this image is a dream - and thus, not completely clear by its very nature.
