They're not looking to get a "that shot sucks" or "what were you thinking" response, and that kind of response adds no value to the discussion without offering some advice on how to improve.

My belief here is that the OP is making a mistake that we all have done at one time or another. He had the great experience of his first cab ride, and has an emotional connection to the photo taken during that experience. The problem is that the photo doesn't convey that experience to a viewer that wasn't there. I'm sure that we all have photos that make us smile when we come across them in our collections, but objectively do not tell the story in a way that other people can relate.
Couldn't have said this better myself. Very well said with all points.
