That's where you'd be wrong. This pic was designed from the title to the cropping to the subject matter so as to completely confuse most photographers. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. This is in stark contrast to non photography people who have seen this pic. Almost all of them see a tree in fruit with blossoms on it and ask if it's a real pic or not. When I tell them yes they respond with well that's cool and not something you see everyday. Basically they like it for what it is.
All of us photographers have a tendency to get completely caught up in rules and other details to the point that we don't even see the captured image let alone appreciate it. It's something to think about.
