I like the first photo the best. Half frozen ponds often hold wildlife in the vicinity so the image evokes positive emotions. I like golds and whites too.

Good to know.

On the bigger issue, I find that I can "expertly" determine what is wrong with an image - to the point of focussing on the flaws (no matter how small) to the detriment of being able to really enjoy most photos.

Yeah, I worry about that happening to me.

As others have noted, sharpness is the worst example of this syndrome. Ordinary folks don't seem to really care that much about it and are able to react naturally to the image as a whole. It is something I immediately notice and often can't get past.

When I first started posting here I didn't even notice things out of focus. Now it is starting to bother me, as well.
