Objectivity is very difficult and rarely achieved. There is a mixture of subject, equipment, materials, along with personality and experience of the photographer. These all have an impact on the final result.
Because of these diverse inputs, almost all photographs end up being subjective. They reflect the choices made and the manner in which they were used.
