Today I’m tying three challenges together in one post.

Festival Of Flowers: Week 9
Daily Prompt: Transported
Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

Inspired by Photography 101: Finding the Best Shot — Portrait or Landscape?

A personal view of any object is subjective.

So the challenge of the artist/photographer is to create a personal view of an object/scene that can be subjectively viewed in a pleasing way.

No matter how hard you try though, you can never please all the people, all the time!

I think it’s equally important for an artist to remember that the end-user of their product will be looking at it from their own perspective.

They might choose landscape over portrait simply because it better suits the space in their hallway, brochure or computer wallpaper.

It’s hard not to become disheartened when others don’t enjoy or perceive an image that you’ve created in the same way that you do.

I always hope that something in my images will transport my viewers to a place or memory that makes them smile. If just some of you are smiling after seeing my photos today then I’ve achieved my goal.

If you’re not smiling today, please come back tomorrow and perhaps I can make you smile then 🙂

  1. Well I’m smiling here in Scotland, so your goal is achieved 🙂 Really gorgeous flower portraits….personal favourite is image 3, swiftly followed by image 4. Love the combination of colours and texture 🙂

    • Yay 😀 It’s always interesting to see which images people like the most! Everyone’s different. With some of my friends that I know really well I can tell which photos of mine will strike a chord with them but even they surprise me sometimes!

  2. Awesome captures! I think you tied the three challenges together very well. Thanks for sharing – I’m so happy you decided to participate again this week. 😀
