You only get ''internationally celebrated trees'' by having an internationally celebrated reputation and exposure and it has nothing to do with quality. Who gets more instagram entries, Keith Jarret or Madonna? There are many trees in this country of that or better quality that no one would know or care about because they were not made by Ryan et al.nathan987 post_id=278210 time=1589548182 user_id=4831]
I think that it is easy to criticise and say that this tree is lazy and obvious and anyone could do it. If that was the case, we would all have award-winning, Instagram-worthy, internationally-celebrated trees (and I accept that many aren’t aiming for this, but you get the point).
No one is rubbishing Ryan personally because he chose to style the tree like this. They are expressing their dislike for that style.But, you don’t have to rubbish those for whom the current trends appeal in order to say ‘I have a different aesthetic’.
But if you are going to drivel on incessantly with pretentious crap, you're fair game I reckon. Especially in Australia were we tend to see through this kind of thing from a mile off.
