Is Cliché Good Or Bad? - Rockies N7041e

What is cliché? Cliché would be a composition repeated by so many photographers when taking a famous scene.


Cliché can be seen in postcards or large pictorial coffee table books.


Should we take cliché shots? Why not? Especially when we don't have sufficient time in exploring a place or the weather is not perfect and you need an effective composition.


It is like an insurance cover for your trip pictures gallery. You paid the premium (as sacrifice of your creativity) and get back at least a few decent shots back home.


Similar compositions of my shot here have been seen in many books or pictures. But anyways I took it as I did not have much time to explore the place.


This is the shot taken in the misty morning at Emerald Lake. It is a beautiful place in our beautiful British Columbia. This is the second shot on my second day f my Canadian Rockies trip.


Have a great day!
