Composition

 

·        Does the photograph tell a story?

Do I like this photograph? (All Else Aside)

 

·        Like all art this is dependent on our own tastes, likes, dislikes and the way we see the world and experience it. It has nothing to do with how experienced photographer is. (Unfortunately)
