Let me know what you think

On my quest to improve as a photographer I am going to continue to ask for feedback on my photos.  This one was taken during the last photography workshop I went to.  I felt very free that day.  John Ater said something that gave me the freedom to point my camera in directions I don't usually point it.  This was the first one of those "free" pictures.

  1. I think you're embarking on a wonderful journey, at least I hope so! Breaking free of whatever rules we place ourselves under and seeing ordinary things in a new way...giving yourself permission...crop...re-crop...turn it sideways or upside down...put it aside and come back to it later...whatever!
    Adopt an attitude and HAVE FUN!!! Gregory

  2. I think an interesting combination of old and new. Obviously the lamp post looks new, but it also reminds me of the eyes of some robot alien. Very interesting picture.

  3. I like this very much. Is this a raw photo or did you do any editing to it?

  4. I did minimal editing Justin. I just brightened the sky a touch. Those are some crazy lenses.

    Thanks Gregory. I'll have to more fun with the rule breaking. Did I just say that??? ; )

  5. I like that you're looking at things differently, Melinda. The more you practice the more you'll adopt your own flair for angles. Maybe a good thing to practice would be to choose an object and make a point of photographing it from as many different angles as you can think of?
