Second Best

Sometimes it all comes down to instinct. If something has caught your eye as photo worthy, it's because your eye is telling your mind that it has the potential for art. And sometimes that first photo, if thought-through and deliberate enough, is all you need. If you get the exact aim you were looking for the first time, why make twenty more? Sometimes it can yield better results. But more often than we'd like to think, the first shot is exactly what we want, and the photos go downhill from there. But, this isn't me saying to snap-one-and-run. It's a very good practice to continue altering and changing your frame and exposure from the original, but when analyzing later, pay special attention to the first photo. It's often the one that best captures the original intent you had when photographing. Such was the case with these two, both made this weekend.
