Well, most people just take crappy phone photos and then edit them poorly.
Probably because most people aren’t professionals and most vacationers aren’t professionals and a camera phone is much easier to lug around? People probably relate more to these types of photos because they too, can take the same crappy pics and edit them if they get the chance.
Photos can do the places justice. It’s just that more often these days, people upvote photos of pretty places, no matter how shitty the photo, instead of upvoting beautiful photos of beautiful places.
Maybe because most redditors aren’t professionals but can still relate to pretty pictures better than to pretty photos, done by professionals with $5000 in equipment and basement photo labs? I will agree that OPs who edit other peoples work without due credit just for up votes is sad, but the pictures are still nice and we may have never seen these photos otherwise.
