Make sense? hmmmm I am not sure making sense has a lot to do with making fine photographs..
About "making sense."
A forum member posted recently this, in another thread, in response to a similar question (which version works better):
I am curious about your rationale for this "poll". Why are you doing this? Is this your vision or you plan to make your image based on popular opinion?...
Well, I did have a vision. But not all visions are crystal clear. Some are blurry, just a hint, an outline of an idea. We were sitting under a lamp and I noticed those interesting shadows, created by eyelashes. It caught my attention. I knew I needed to grab that shot, but was not exactly able to pre-visualize the final outcome. Blessed are those who can (pre-visualize, that is, like AA). My inspiration comes mostly in the post processing stage.
And there, in post, I kept reducing the image I was working on. Not just cropping, although I did that too, even tightly so, but reducing the size of the image, using LR's 1:4 view. Somehow, I thought it, just because the initial interest is a small area under the eyes, that the whole image has to be small. I felt unsatisfied with the outcome, yet kept sensing there is something in that image.
Not until Bill mentioned it would work big i realized it is indeed so. The complete opposite of what I was trying to do.
And that is the value of the critique forum.
