I've read this thread, and in particular Rolando's comments, several times. I think I keep coming back to it because I'm sure he'd say the same things about my photos. In fact, after reading his comments I went back to my album and found several that would fit in the category of "can't find the image". (memo to self: delete the crappy images.) But that was my starting point, so I posted what I had and sought comment. Over the last year I have replaced a lot of the images in my albums and MM portfolio with incrementally better shots (by my accounting), based on what I have learned from comment (and lack of comment) on my work here on GG. Still, I expect Rolando would say the same thing.
I have a shoot tomorrow, and I'm taking Rolando's remarks as if they were directed to me. My goal is to take photos good enough to replace the weakest ones in my portfolio, and that don't look like I got beat up in a fight for the image.
My thanks to c.td for posting.
