I have been looking over the goals I had set back in January (more on those at the end of the month) and I have been thinking of what goals I should set for next year. With that thought fresh in my mind, I came across this photo I took a couple of weeks ago while shopping in the village of Skaneateles, New York of a colorful display of blown glass suncatchers at the back of one of the shops.
As I processed it I began to see other compositions within the photo. Rainbow swirls, green alien landscapes, autumn colors and purple fantasy. I tried them all but most were a bit too blurry for me except this one.
It is not of much use after cropping so much. If I had seen it at the time, I could have backed up some and used the Nikon 28-300VR lens to zoom in for a faux macro photo and make it a much better image for me to use.
This lead me to one of the goals I will be setting for 2011. That is to practice seeing more photographic opportunities. I have not decided how I will go about it. Reading books, taking an online class or simply being more aware. Any suggestions or tips? Leave me a comment below. Thanks!
