Have you ever worked on an image, and for some reason, it just doesn't feel right. No matter how many times you re-work the edit. . . it just doesn't feel right, you don't know what it is that's off about the image, you just know it is.
Then you post it to a social site, and to your surprise people love it. It's featured, and you can't understand why. . . It's not your best work, the image which you posted yesterday or the day before is ten times better than this, but this is the one which people are talking about.
Just thinking out loud
