    Carrie, sorry to say this but it looks way over-processed. I looked at the original sized version on Flickr and there are a lot of artifacts and noise.

    Hi Craig,

    Thanks for your input. I’m aware that this photo isn’t very good. It was taken last year at dusk with a crappy little point-and-shoot. I’m still learning and growing with everything I do, and I can already see a huge difference between what I was doing last year and what I’m doing this year.

    I like to post old photos, because they remind us of where we’ve been, what we were doing and where we are going. I’m not an expert. I react with emotion first and whenever I look at this photo, it reminds me of a special place and time with John. Plus, I like the colors. Photography for me isn’t all about being perfect, it’s also about revisiting the past.

    Over-processed or not, it’s still one of my favorites. šŸ™‚

    Thanks very very much for your constructive criticism. You are someone I greatly admire and I respect and value your opinion. Now I’m off to find out about artifacts and noise.

    I like the photo, Carrie… over-processed and noisy.. as it is.
    I don’t think photography has to be perfect and sharp all the time.
    This one looks more like a painting, and this is why I like it.

    Thank you Cris! You’re right. It reminds me a bit of a painting too. This photo seems to be a big hit with the ladies. That’s OK in my books!

    I like it, Carrie. Great colors. I agree with you about photos being about a time and place. I equate photography with freezing a moment in time, and keeping it forever.
