People respond to my photos, and one of the most encouraging remarks was when someone wrote that my work is "emotive". (I had to grab my dictionary and look up the word.)
Stirring the emotions of a viewer is quite the compliment. I'm happy to hear feedback like that, because when I'm out on a photo shoot, I do feel a certain emotion as I'm setting up a shot. My goal is to present the fine details that many people don't ever notice in their rush through life. I believe I am accomplishing that.
