Hello my dears,

How do you think the art quality and popularity are connected? 

Does more popularity mean better quality? I think there is certain correlation, though far from direct. If you do absolute shit, no one is going to look at it/listen to it/read it. On the other hand, if you are absolutely great, you cannot be unnoticed. 
Most art falls somewhere in between these two extremes. And quite often I feel that there is low-quality art getting a lot of attention and positive feedback, and some better, or even pretty good art not being praised and supported. Did you ever notice this?
Of course, quality of art is subjective. Again, for the most part.

I would like to know your thoughts on this subject.

Cheers!

My camera and lenses:
Canon D60 and a standard lens that came with it. I use it for all landscape and self-portraits.
Zenit Helios-44-2 lens is used for all macro/close-up shots you see in my gallery. Sometimes I use the extension rings as well. They came with this lens.

I am a vegetarian, a metal lover, a cyclist, an environmentalist, a hitch-hiker and I camp on my own. I speak Ukrainian, Russian, English and Finnish. I am rather critical and have some strong opinions. I like the Arctic and I am interested in the indigenous cultures of the North.
I create my bright-coloured photographs while listening to dark music.
And I like putting smileys in my messages :)

А якщо ви з України, або знаєте українську, то пишіть українською! Люблю рідну мову.
