Jay Maisel tells a story about working on a photograph in front of him only to have his wife suggesting he turn around. There was a far better photograph behind him. The point of this is becoming aware of what is in front, behind, up and down, under and over. Where IS the photographic viewpoint that is special to you. Just pulling your camera up fast and blasting away is not exactly Zen vision. My photographs of Florida palm trees were taken over time. Each photograph provides a different viewpoint. The quality of light has a lot to do with perspective and feel.
