breaking rules . . .

"Don't divide the picture in half; don't put your telephone pole in the center".....I'm almost breaking the rules here, but the mood of shot and the "over-the-top" color trumps the "rules" for me. :-)

Your critique of my photos is most appreciated. . . . .

I am like you....I take what I like and what looks "real"....I try to tell a story with my shot....I don't always like colorized photos but I love what you works don't just had to make something stand out you play with the color to enhance the whole shot..... :)
