I really like the way this image uses the different layers of colour, light and texture to suggest depth. I think it's a deceptively "simple" image that's really quite complex.

It is quite simple candid shot from the car window, but the weather was wonderful -- after the storm.

The way your precise eyes find so many things and such deep sense in every image is amazing. Thank you, Stevie!

Now you're making me blush! :)

But finding the "secret" patterns and significance in everyday things and places is what makes photography such an absorbing and ever-surprising activity. And the other thing that interests me is how every image must ultimately stand by what it is, rather than by how it was made. So a technically difficult shot that took a long time to create may still not be as successful as a "simple" snapshot that you grab in an instant, and almost without thinking. The really good photographer is one whose "instant" shots are beautiful and well constructed!
