Red face Gene's 366

I'm going to do a 365 project this year. I had planned a picture of the sunlight hitting my bedroom window first thing in the morning but cancelled it for a general lack of appeal. I'llplay it safe and post a pic of my grandson. It's SOOC, my wife does our PP.

nice start, but don't shy away from posting your 'first thought'. Shoot what makes You happy, then share... if others like it fine, if you still like it even if they don't... it's Your image, not theirs, after all.

Very good advise, Ned. That is what I do...to a point.
Gene, your first post is a keeper! Very good work!

Thanks all. My original pic lacked appeal even to me.

George,
I thought that this was a C&C free zone... (unless the OP asks for it), I simply didn't want Gene to edit out a potential shot simply because he doesn't think others will like it. Developing one's eye Starts with taking photos that 'you' like. I generally will take 'about a roll' of images (12-24 frames or so (I'm old school)) then edit in PP for the strongest images, or those that worked as I thought they should when I was shooting.

I started my own challenge today, (as you know), Not all of the images made the grade, but there were a few I liked (and posted)... I had to pick One to start though.

Gene, I'd be interested in seeing the morning window shot at some point!

overlapping posts. Well if it didn't measure up, shoot more (as you did)!
