...Andy, this shot is worthy of an award. I would vote a "10" for it, but I would probably bring your score down because my "weight" is so low! The image evokes emotions of pensiveness and that's what photography is all about!
Kendog that was a point and shoot shot. It was the way it was. Wet, muddy and cold (Jan 2008). Very pleased with the way it came out. Sometimes I get tired of the classic blue sky etc. More charater and reality with cloud!! That's mostly all we get here anyway!!!! Thanks for the comment.
Your self-deprecation will get you nowhere, my good man. This shot shows evidence of compositional training...sure the elements may have been happenstance, but it takes a keen eye to arrange them in an artistic Gestalt!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
