“ Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst" – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Do you know how many photos you have taken up until now? You will have to take thousands of pictures to reach a point where you can begin to evaluate them objectively. Looking upon your photos as if you were looking at them through someone else’s eyes is a good way to give yourself constructive criticism. Comparing your first photos with your most recent, do you see improvement? Do you remember how you loved some of your first photos – do you still love them or are they now not so good anymore?

Quote:Where this a will there is a hope..

Great shot

Thanks for sharing Pete

Regards Nathan Grin

Thanks for the vote, Nathan. But no, it is rather faith ,not will. We humans have hope because we believe we can obtain. If there is no faith that we can obtain, we lose hope and all is left is wishful thinking. No amount of will can give us hope. Think about it. That is why so many lead pointless, hope-less, lost,misdirected lives.
We have to have a RELIABLE compass, and a point of reference outside ourselfs to see our movement, its direction and our relative position.
Jesus Christ is the reference point .(The lighthouse)
The KJV Holy Bible is the compass.
We may obtain HOPE by FAITH.
Every man has faith. It's what we put our faith in that matters. I could put my faith in the Green Man from Mars or in a broken compass and never obtain.
Obviously there are no green men on Mars, and a broken compass will not show true direction.
Romans 12:3
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Hebrews 11:1
11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.



Please consider these words , repent of your self will and thoughts, and turn to Christ in full surrender and HE WILL COME to you, save you,cleanse you .make you holy.
Give you TRUE JOY , and PEACE and HOPE.

Have a Blessed day!

An interesting intro to your portfolio Nathan and a lovely, eclectic mix within it.

It is a salutary lesson to look at our earlier photographs and to note how our skills and interests have developed. It should be compulsory every 10,000 photographs!

In answer to your question: I've taken 1000s of photos since the first moment I held my very first DSLR - in fact it was my very first digital camera. I didn't have a clue how to use but I kept experimenting and still delighted with some of the photos I took because I had NO idea I could capture special effects like make the sun look like a star or make someone look like they have a twin. Still so much I have to learn. Loving the journey!

Actually, old chum, my early images taken on 35mm film and a couple of lifetimes ago were, even if I say so my oh, so humble self, excellent to, dare I say it, superb. These digital days I seem to have lost not only the thought process to set up a shot properly, but also any real concept of composition. Age and rubbish health clearly came as a set.

Hi Nathan
Thank you for stopping by my photos as often as you do & your comments are much appreciated. You have a pretty impressive portfolio of photos some lovely images. Nice to see so many subjects covered. Health is a problem for me as well. I can't get down any longer or walk too far. I belong to a couple of local clubs & the trouble with the club judges is they think everyone is mobile and can get into these situations & positions to take photos The friend I take to the clubs she also has problems and we both get fed up hearing it would have been better taken from a lower angle or some such comment. Anyway Nathan enough of my moaning you have a good eye and this is a hobby that makes one look at things more closely and take in the wonders of this world. Best wishes Martin
