THE MANY WONDERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY
« on: January 02, 2010, 07:48:06 AM »
It's been said many times what a wonderful pastime/hobby photography is. Apart from the wonder you feel when looking at a particularly pleasing image, have you considered all the other wonders that are involved with it's practise. Just a few spring to mind.

No Comments - I WONDER why I bother?

Can't get it as I want it - I WONDER why?

That's not how I saw it - I WONDER should I have moved to the right a bit?

That's a prizewinner!? - I WONDER what the judges saw in that?

Strange image - I WONDER if the author saw it like that?

Shall I tone it? - I WONDER if it will imporove it?

I just WONDER if there are any more 'WONDERS' you experience? :-\

I Wonder how i didn't see 'that' angle?
or
I Wonder how i missed 'that' shot?

And i wonder those thoughts every time i've been out on a photo shoot or meet with other photographers and see the pictures they have produced!

I wonder why things happen when someone is talking to you whereas, during the other four hours or so nothing does?  :'(

I wonder why interesting things happen around me when I don't have my camera handy but don't happen when I do? ::)
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

It's called 'togs law'
If you want a photo free time - carry a camera. If you want to spend all your time cursing at missed shots - don't carry a camera  :tup:

Happens to all of us would be photographers!  ;D

Good thread !

I always wonder how the dog's tail is always in the corner of my landscape shots so that I HAVE to crop in post.
