     Alan Hull asked:
I keep seeing references on the LUG to powerful images.  In particular 
to photographs by Bresson, Capa, Grant etc.  What is a powerful image? 
I can understand a spectacular picture, (when you say WOW).  But what 
on earth is a powerful one?
     Would not a powerful image be one that has the power to evoke strong 
     emotions in the person who views it (and describes it as powerful)?
