What I've learned...

I've only been at this 365 Challenge for one week and this is what I've already learned...or became aware of...or re-learned...or something...

Yesterday I posted an image that I wasn't crazy about...because I had to post an image...right...for the challenge...

Today I posted an image (on my facebook page, Donna L. Dodd Photographs, where I'm posting all my images, daily) that was bad...I mean "What was I thinking??"  So I cropped the image, which helped, and reposted a side by side comparison...but still...

So, I've become aware that normally if I take a photo and don't like it I don't post it...but because I have to post an image a day I have to post "those" images too.  And when I'm in a hurry because I want to get going on my day...I have other things to do...that's when the "non-postable" images get posted.  Or maybe a better way to say it is not every daily image is a keeper. 

So maybe that's one more thing I'm trying to accomplish with this challenge...more thought given to each image before I click which, hopefully, will result in more keepers, daily.

Here's what I'm talking about for today's image.  I didn't like the green tint on the cabinet door on the right...most likely a reflection off the walls...and I had originally intended to focus on the pile of TP but when I lined up the shot through the viewfinder I didn't accomplish that...the cropping did...but cropping is bad in that it throws away pixels...a no-no!
