is it my computer or screen but these photos all seem out of wack (fuzzy or other adverb) I personally prefer solid clear sharp images
All of the photos from this club outing were processed for high dynamic range (HDR), or simply for the look that HDR processed photos tend to have. This photo is of the latter example.
There is a place for photos that are not contrasty or tack-sharp, though. The portrait and fashion industries tend to soften certain elements of a photo to make it more pleasing. Do you really want to see every pore on a model's face? There are also certain techniques, such as pinhole, where the image won't be sharp no matter how hard you try.
IMHO I prefer to use other ways to cover up a model and present photos (I guessed you had purposely changed the photo) The photo content is excellent by the way - good framing all elements of what is going on
You are correct, Chris intentionally altered the color and contrast of this photo. As an aside, appreciating pictorial photos is not really any different than appreciating, say, macro or abstract photos. For pictorial photos, projecting an emotional response into the viewer is more critical than technical aspects such as color accuracy or sharpness. It is not good or bad, just a different way to reach an audience.
