Even photographers will have differing opinions about those shots.

As I am learning.

If those aren't subjects you've shot before, there's a lot to admire about them. "If only I could get some shots like that", and like that.

My first winter shots as a dedicated photographer.

If you've been chasing such types of scenery for years on end, they'll be OK, like many others out there, but not like that one time I got this shot with this weird light and that mountain lion that hopped on top of the barn just as I was ready to snap, and I caught it as it leapt and grabbed an owl in mid-air, silhouetted by the rising moon. . . that one ruined all barn shots for me from then on.

Yeah, I worry about that. Takes all the fun out of stuff that used to thrill me... It has started to happen already. The more I learn, the pickier I get.

You should post this mountain lion, eating owl, in moon light shot.
