Pick number 8 is:
Winds of inspiration, Japan by +Elia Locardi
In this photo Elia has thought about everything, right moment, right light, right processing, right composition etc. The reason for this pic and Elia is that he emphasizes how important the right time is for a photo. Like here, perfect condition for the mountain in the back and the valley, great light on the blossom and the temple. Many, me included bring our camera on our vacations and dedicates perhaps a day photographing hoping for the right conditions. And it's nothing wrong with that but you have to have a great deal of luck, but the photos are sure good enough for the family album but perhaps not good enough for your portfolio. He says that he visit the sight day's in a row to get the right light, sometimes over a week. Learning point - be patient.
This is a part of a quest in +The Arcanum in +Glenn Guy 's cohort, where I'm to pick ten photos or photographers that have had a profound impact on me and my photographing. This is pick number 8.
