    Hi there team!
    This is one of the times I just raised my camera without thinking much.

    I edited a bit and the image got a very specific look.
    I am not sure why but my eyes say that this works for a reason.


    Can you find the reason I think that this works? Perhaps is the table and the wood that is atop of it that make you wonder "who left it there?"

    Aesthitics is a personal thing. What looks good to me may not do anything for you and vice versa :)  Speaking for this certain photo and since YOU asked, composition wise it doesn't do anything for me but if you are asking about its post processing (?) then I do like the colors and "looks" ;)

    I would consider a B&W conversion.

    I guess I have a similar reaction...the elements in the photo show good detail but overall as a photo of a scene / subject(s) it doesn't happen to strike a chord with me. And I myself have posted many photos that I thought were interesting for some reason or another yet drew limited reaction from other folks.

    Same here...

    In the end of the day though does it matter what other people think or if we are happy with our photos? (Rhetorical question, for me its the latter ;)  )
