A great quote about photography

I can't remember the exact phrasing, but it goes something like this:

A good photograph shows reality. A great photograph shows emotion.

I think I'm going to take this to heart in my photography going forward.

Do you happen to remember the source of your quote?

I don't, alas. Otherwise I probably would have been able to find the exact wording. I even tried to Google it, but I didn't find it.

That's a good quote. But when I think of a couple of Anselm Adams' photographs that I particularly like, I have trouble associating emotion with them. I'll have to revisit them.

The emotion I usually get from Ansel Adams' photos is 'serenity'. Especially that one of the full moon over the small town in New Mexico.
