Thank you for commenting. I am pleased you find the shots technically acceptable. Composition is something I have always worked on to improve. I mainly am trying to make photographs that please me. It is really enjoyable when others are pleased with my efforts too.
Your comment on originality is taken with no offense! Originality in photography would be a good topic to start a thread with, especially here on LuLa. There are so many fine photographers and almost as many opinions. I have to admit that originality is not something I dwell on too much with my photography. When I thought about it a bit, after reading your post, I ended up thinking that the word is open to a lot of interpretation. For instance, is making a photograph original? Would originality come from subject, technique, personal vision, or what?
