As I was wandering though YouTube I found myself watching a couple of videos that discussed the question, “what makes a good photograph?”
The most important thing I’ve learned so far is that each person’s response to an image is subjective. I’ve also heard that when we are watching the sun set with a loved one, we do not experience the same sunset. A lonely thought, don’t you think?
Yet, an important element of a good image is … storytelling.
So now I ask myself and you, “is there a story or two within a skyscape photograph?”

There is always a story, isn’t there? I love to have a story in mind and then check with the photographer. Their story is never the same as mine–which I love! I think that is how it should be.
Thank you for your thoughts. I’ve often wondered if titles sway people away from their experience.
No narrative comes to mind but following my eyes through all those lovely colours and convolutions of the clouds – more a meditative silence than a story Brenda!
Thank you Laura. I’ve found myself pondering the difference for me as a viewer when I’m more meditative to when I’m running an internal story.
Beautiful colors 😀
Thank you Cee!
The answer is perhaps in the story you have just told. Photos always have a story. Sometimes the story frames the photo and adds to its individual significance. However, photos evoke different stories from each viewer.
Thank you! I do enjoy reading your comments.
