    this is assuming of course , that you are not in the photography industry 'cos if you are in and are working for customers , then them liking it matters
    yes but analysis of your own work is important too right?
    a photographer's gotta be able to understand what makes his pictures strong and why he likes them

    If you're creative but not technical, you can't carry it out.

    If you're technical but not creative...you have nothing good to shoot.

    In short, you need both. No such thing as technical vs creativity, photography needs both.

    So the ideal is 50% technical and 50% creativity
    Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still

    no, not truth, you need 100% technical and 100% creativity to create stunning photos.

    50 50 is just another half pail of water.

    Its photography, you can't really split the importance of both technicalities and creativity down to mere numbers. Its almost pointless.

    i think your spelling also failed... " too" should be spelt as two

    Not really....the "percentage" if you want to put it that way is actually the limiting factor. Your photos can only go as far as whichever has a higher "percentage". If both 50% means your photo only 50%...

    So catchlight got my meaning...you need both at 100% to create 100% good photos, if you want to quantitatively anaylsis it.
