Another take on people not adding details about how they made the photo is one I can relate to: To me it seems a bit presumptuous to assume that viewers are less knowledgeable than I am, and wonder about how I did it. I'm sure that a large majority of FM members are way more advanced than I am. Heck, a lot of you are pros, and I'm just a hobbyist, and just a technician at that, not an artist. I'm happy to answer any question anyone might have, but life has taught me not to behave as if I'd been asked a question when I haven't been. If I were a Jim Wilson, that would be a different story!
My take on the image info is that lots of people want to see the info, then don't know what to do with it.
If someone asks, I'll tell them, but there aren't magic settings that will allow you to make pictures that look like how I make pictures.
IMO, you are better off learning a technique and style than to try to replicate camera settings. Try looking at the picture and deconstruct it. When I was learning flash, I looked at every single picture I saw and tried to figure out where the light was coming from and how I would do it if I was making the shot.
