Beauty vs. Technical Quality
This is in my file from my last visit to the Botanical Gardens. I didn’t post it earlier because it doesn’t have good technical quality – but every time I scan through the file I stop to look at it. I like it, really like it. It doesn’t show the detail of the butterfly wings but I like the angle. There is a sense of movement, of anticipation. Even though it isn’t as sharp as it should be, I like the gentleness.
When I post a photo I aim for the best technical quality I’m capable of, interesting composition, and aesthetic beauty. I guess if I can’t do it all, I prefer interesting composition and beauty. Good thing I’m taking photos for fun and not profit or I would be looking at pretty photos with an empty belly.
