Waiting period

Oft times I think I post an image to early. Prehaps it would be best to wait awhile and let the image grow on me. As in study it more before release.

I admit some of my images on this site are made in haste and released. These seem to get the least amount of views and comments.

Yeah, I think I’ll use a waiting period from now on. How long? Until I’m happy with the image. However long that takes!

New work

Captured this image of a Cabbage Butterfly on thistle. Image was made on my property. Made at the end of Spring.

I have flowers growing to attrach butterflies. The thistle grows naturally on my property. I allow it to mix with some of the cultivated flowers.

Nikon D 300 w/ 70-300mm f 4.5-5.6 lens.
1/500s @ f16. Focal length 300mm. ISO 1000.

New works

Just added a remake of the B&W image of an old water fountain. Added more contrast because it appeared a bit flat.

Added a new image of a Gulf Frittary butterfly. Image was made on Hilton Head Island.

New work

Added an image of a small church in the Arizona desert. Used Topaz to bring out the colors and texture better.


Uploaded a new image today. Capture of an artist using pastels. She was working off of a trail at Cape May SP. in New Jersey. Her and a friend were from upstate New York.


So which is more important, total views or comments? Or, are they both important? At this time I’m leaning toward comments. The comments come from viewers who take the time to look at the image. Viewers may only linger a bit before passing onto other works.

So choosing an image to delete becomes easier. Images with comments stay. Images with only a few views bite the dust. And those with many views and no comments get a second chance.
