Personally I don't think it matters to much what others think as long as you're pleased with it unless of course you're trying to sell your pictures. Pleasing others is secondary but usually if i'm pleased with a photo others are also, just maybe not to the same extent :-D.

Thanks very much for sharing your opinion. I feel very differently, in this regard.

If I'm not pleasing others, I'm not pleasing myself. I view photography as a way to provide pleasure to others.

This is what continues to drive me to become better at this craft which I only fairly recently started taking seriously.

I have not yet learned enough to give any serious thought to selling my photos.

I like your last shot. Nicely composed.

Thanks.
