The senses

How do the senses interact with what an artist or photographer creates. Touch, smell, taste, sound all interact within an image or at least should. For me an image is more than a picture hanging on a wall, it needs to invoke a response, if it doesn’t for me it is just a picture. It might be technically correct but still a picture. An image to stir an emotion be it from a past experience or a deep rooted thought. When I look at an image it needs to encage me if it doesn’t I move on. For me I have to connect to it. One of the worse things that I have heard from people who have viewed my images is that they are good. What does that mean? Is it technically correct or they haven’t connected to the photo.
