Wondering. . .

I am laying here, in a medicated state, trying to recover from surgery and stay ahead of the pain.  I started to wonder what makes a good picture.  There have been a number of discussions in my home about my photos.  I asked for feed back.  I got a lot of questions.  The only one I currently recall is, "Why did you place the subject to the left instead of in the center?"  As I lay here I wonder what makes a good picture.  How much of it is subjective?  What can I do to improve?  I think that I need more feedback.  Please take a moment and give me feed back on my photos when you have a comment.  I am not looking for praise.  I am looking for feedback to help me improve the skills I am trying to develop.

I love this photo.  I captured exactly what I wanted to capture.  I don't know if anyone else thinks it is good or not but I love it. 


  1. I think it's a matter of vision at the time. I often find myself cropping and re-cropping pictures at different times. It depends on my mood and my paradigm at the time.

  2. I love the focus on the plant. You did a great job capturing even the thorns. I think you rock!

  3. I do like this a lot, the soft focus is so nice.

    I'm a huge believer in the rule of thirds when it comes to photography. I find it more visually appealing - and you've totally nailed it in this composition - intentionally or not.
