Agree with everything that's gone before.Photography is a personal thing, whether creating or appreciating, an image can mean different things to different people.
As Andy says this perhaps links in with another thread about judging pictures.
I'm reminded of an old colleaguewhot used to use the analogy of a dog show in respect of photography. Each breed represented the different genres of photography and the supreme champion was the best of the bunch. However to reach the these dizzy heights the best of breed and the best in show had to conform to strict rules laid down by the Kennel Club, each marvellous to look at but each very much like its competitors. He used to finish by saying 'Give me a sprightly mongrel any day'.
