Once you like what you do, who gives a s**t what anybody thinks. I think enjoying the process of taking pictures is as important if not more so, than the end product! People's opinions are just that, opinions. Like what you do and the rest is purely subjective.
Well, I hope you can enjoy and appreciate the positives, and not let the negatives bother you too much. It is a nice picture. There is a slight halo, indicating that you pushed a bit too hard. Maybe you can work on a new, even-better version of the shot. But still, it's a pretty scene, and a nice enough picture to have garnered over three dozen LIKES!
I knew I'd get likes; it's the kind of pictures that non-hobby-photographers like
Actually, I think the halo is from poor dodging, and not from photomatix-overcooking. anyway, I dumped the raw file when I moved to my new mac - I didn't have space for 100 gigs of raw files, so I narrowed my digital photos down to around 20 gigs :O it felt kind of wrong, but I'm glad I did it!
