Every time I've taken pictures and come on a computer to pick out the best of the photos I'm always concerned that they have turned out bad. I'm also concerned with the thought that I have a terrible eye for photography or when I do some amount of editing I'm worried I'm making things look unnatural.
My only goal when I do do editing is to bring out the natural color and make the entire photo look as close to what I saw in the moment. I've gotten a number of compliments from some of my friends who have seen my pictures but like a number of people it's easier to take scrutiny than it is to take compliments. I've never understood this but I'm still doing my best to take good photos.

This week I went to an area that was covered with aspen trees and was surprised at the mere quantity and density in the area. I traveled down roads that had aspen trees of all sizes on both sides of the road for miles on end. I also got up there right as they were in full swing of the Fall colors. I was lucky on this regard since today (two days later) high winds knocked most of the leaves off for the year. While I traveled I was welcomed by a small pond with about a dozen ducks swimming around. When I pulled up they all came my direction and investigated me. I'm sure they thought I had food stashed somewhere which didn't really exist. I was able to get a couple of photos of them before being stopped by a proprietor in the area.
