  1. Perfection lies in the eye of the beholder.

    The work that goes into that perfect photo is never known to the viewer {unless it is you who explains everything you did to strive for that perfection}.

    Seldom does the photographer see their own work as perfect there is usually something amiss a flower not just right, the angle is…., the sun…. a blink of the eye, etc…

    Yet you can make these imperfections {as you call them} seem as though it was meant to be
    that way and therefore enhance the photo.

    Yet to my untrained eye something not just right {to you} makes the image far more interesting, to me. That imperfection can enhance the photo and bring into it another dimension. I don’t look for the flaws {in an others work} I look for the beauty that resulted in my saying: OH WOW! OMG! You have made my day! etc…

    And your work moves me! Thank You for bringing joy and beauty into my world on a daily basis!

    • Natures’ Child: I don’t think that you can get away with calling your eye untrained any longer. In fact your comment has gone to the very essence of why we create art and why we enjoy it.

      Yes, the viewer never gets to see the process, only the result. We did not see Van Gogh standing before Starry Night, paint still wet saying, “This is a pile of crap. I will strive to do better next time.” The perfectionism comes from the love of art, and without that love/perfectionism there would be no masterpieces.
