    Why are the images on Flickr so crystal-clear, sharp, real, alive, in-your-face ... and ... the images you see (of the same things) on other sites look dead, stale, and not really "there."

    Here are some comparions:

    GardenPhotos Beets

    Here's the best comparsion I've found:

    Flickr Kale

    What is required to have those kinds of Flickr photos on a website? What is going on there?

    Some people will have a better eye for viewing what's interesting, instead of taking generic shots. There are many other contributing factors though, lighting, freshness, the actual the skill level of who's taking the photo etc.

    The Flickr version of the Kale looks to have been taken close up, (Macro photography) where you can really get to see the small details that go towards making something up. You can take almost any object that close and it introduces you to a whole new world. (take a fly under a microscope for example.)

    The later has no focal point, area of interest; they've spread things out too thinly.

    The difference between a casual web designer with no artistic background using a point and shoot technique as opposed to a professional photographer with the right tools and understanding to take a good photo.
