Oh come on - it's a Gursky! I don't for one minute think it's been bought for its inherent aesthetic properties - it's clearly an investment. It's no different from buying a Picasso (who also broke all the rules). Both artists were influential, and therein lies the value perhaps?

Still a s**t photo.

The first Google result yields this nugget;


Quote: The Rhine II shares with these earlier photographs an emphasis on textures; the distinctions between the shimmering gloss of the river, the smudged softness of the clouds, the lush carpet of the verges and the hard matte path lend the photograph sensual contrast.



I no longer have very many arty pretensions, but still believe that photography is as important an art form as any other. The time and long years of thought which went into creating this image surely raise it above "Sunset at Whitby"?

You presume time and long years of thought went into it (maybe it did maybe it didnt) ... and at the end of the day I couldnt give a rat's @rse how long it took to produce something, if there is another image that was a snapshot by accident that moves me far more and was taken by an amateur then that would please me far more.

We did test this theory some years back - and it proved to be wrong

I'm not so sure Keith, I can remember someone, I can't remember who it was, doing something similar about two years ago and it worked.
