Photography – Outstanding or Standing Out?

Does a photograph have to be outstanding to stand out? I suppose this is a philosophical question and may depend on personal opinion. Rather than focus on the word “outstanding,” would it be wiser to substitute the word interesting or perhaps worthy?

I have taken numerous photos that I think are interesting and worthy, but may not be outstanding. The picture below delivers a smile and offers a penguinesque “Where’s Waldo.” It may also be outstanding, but if not, I would suggest that it is certainly engaging. I wish all my photographs had these qualities.

What are your thoughts?
