    Thank you for this Pelao. I was just thinking about this today after I took a number of photographs. What is it about? What was I after... This piece along with a post Don AKA Streetshooter made recently about looking at one's own photographs and how important it is as a tool for learning both compliment each other.

    Again, thanks very much for the link.

    P.S. The comments by Don that I was referring to are in this thread:

    Hi BBW

    I have been following the thread you mention. It's one of those threads that you can keep going back to for great ideas, the sort of discussion that I find incredibly useful. Discussions about about gear and software always interest me, but I crave discussions around specific images and techniques. I always learn something, or re-learn something that had faded. I value anything that gives a fresh perspective.

    I enjoy these essays from Michael Reichmann because they are very much about the reality of making an image.

    I've got his site bookmarked and will remember to check back in. And I couldn't agree with you more regarding "those threads" you're talking about.

    Thanks for sharing that, a very interesting read. I am much more interested in talking about the image making process, than gear, although I do enjoy talking about that too I find the discussion becomes old and repetitive very quickly. The photographic process is where it's really at for me.

    I have added luminous landscape to my RSS now, I've seen the odd article before. It's a good read.
