New York City at night - Rain in midtown Manhattan

New York City - Chinatown on a Rainy Evening

When does a photograph transform from a snapshot into something more transcendent? This is probably one of the most complex questions that photographers encounter.

I firmly believe that subjective taste plays a large role in deciding what is or isn’t memorable. One could debate the existence of a collective subjective taste.
