I suppose there are days when even a ‘real’ photographer isn’t happy with his/her photos. Today was a bit like that for me, feeling a bit underwhelmed by my photos. As a matter of fact, I really disliked this particular picture initially. I like the sky, it has that ‘moment right before a storm’ feel, as the clouds rolled in dark and fast. The rest is just a bit blah to me. The water is a murky brown, and the greenery seems ordinary.
I have finally decided there is something else about this photo that appeals to me. I can’t put my finger on it exactly, but it has something to do with the sky, trees and water creating three horizontal layers (this probably constitutes the rule of thirds).
Even though I’m not exactly sure why…I’m starting to like this photo a little more.
