Creating by committee is, in my opinion, creative suicide. I believe if everyone likes an image you should probably rethink it. It means everyone gets it and because everyone likes it, everyone understand it. That means it is usually a very SAFE image. Safe is not where I want to be. Safe images are usually obvious (as Weston would say) or nouns. No real staying power because one looks at, immediately gets it and moves on; no need to stay with it any longer. Better work usually has things that keep you coming back and when you do you get more. Those images usually work on a deeper not so immediate level. So don't think because something that is popular it is good. That shouldn't be the barometer. Remember Threes Company was the most popular show on TV.
