  1. This maybe ‘wordless’ but it deserves a comment.
    My first reaction on viewing was ‘I like this’ but then I thought no. Why? because of the bright area middle top.
    But on further viewing, that bright area reflects the glow on the top of the tulip and my eye went back into a peaceful state of ‘I like this image’ so (note to myself) always trust first impressions.

    1. Thank you for sharing this insight into “first impressions.” I deeply appreciate your comment as I’ve learned a lot from photographers who share how and what they see in photographs…it is a never-ending learning project. I’m exploring how to open myself to seeing light as my eyes are mostly engaged to form and shaped. Be safe.

      1. I know what you mean, but as you say ‘light’ it’s sometimes what makes an image.
        B&W films of the 1930’s & 40’s along with artists like J.M.W Turner who used light and form are for me, good examples.
        I print both traditional and digital and in my humble opinion, that is the only way to really appreciate what a photographer is capable of.
        I struggled trying to get blog images looking like my prints, gave up. Decided that blog images are like someone’s day book, good, bad and indifferent, but all an insight into the photographers thinking.
        Sorry for the ramble.
        Still like the image by the way 🙂

      2. I’ve also struggled with the images posted on WP. Do you post on Instagram? I’ve wondered about moving towards Instagram as a means to connect with other photographers.
