Criticism without constructiveness, intent to produce a positive result, nor a clear explanation of both what it is that might be modified (at the artist's discretion) and why, is simply mindless bitching by those who cannot do any better and yet are self-important enough to think they were in the right to say anything to begin with. I see a lot of this mindless complaining, but not much in the way of constructive criticism. "Why did this get a DD"? Because someone submitted it for such, and clearly it was approved. WOW. COMPLICATED REASONING THERE.
As others mentioned, this is a very nice picture for its contrasts and simplicity. It catches the eye. I like it. People who don't really don't have to look at it.
I don't mind the picture, I'm rather fond of it, but some part of me doesn't really know why this is a DD. I understand what it could be interpreted as, but personally I just see a simple picture with contrast |D Not hating on the photographer, just not understanding the DD.
