Sour Granny Smith apples with sweet honey. (194 days ago)
LORD stop the beating of my heart! I have to try this when I get home. I would have liked to see more but you cropped it off
Thanks (cropped it like that on purpose)
I thought so, but why? What was your reason for doing so?
Yeah, they're good. But don't put too much honey (like in the picture ). I cropped it like that because a normal crop would just be a picture of a plate of food, but by cutting off a little it creates dissonance and makes you look longer, with your brain wanting completion.
I appreciate you telling me that ....although I do not agree it has made me think! (a good thing for a change).
Actually, it did... thus the initial question. I didn't mean people would sit and consciously contemplate about it for hours (or even minutes, or seconds). But the mind decodes data by looking for patterns it has seen before. If it's something completely new, it tries to manage meaning and make it make sense (not always successfully). If it's something kind of familiar (like a plate of food) but doesn't easily fit, it wonders, get's agitated, or whatever, making it ask, "I wonder why it doesn't do X?"
Yes, I understand however the reason why my brain doesn't calibrate the image is quite basic. There is within this photo a visual weight imbalance, meaning everything is to the right (patterns and all) and it is outside of the frame making me think it will tip right out and all those patterns on the edge just take my eye right out of the photo.
In our photography courses, our prof once told us to worry when NOBODY mentions a thing about your picture. So, your photo generated thought and discussion and I thank you for that, I just wish this kind of exchange would happen more often on this site.
Dang......I meant to give you 5 thumbs up and forgot. I will do this on another of your photos OK?!
That's fine, thanks... I don't really care about thumbs ups.
Another question might be - why?
Why...because it shows appreciation on my part for your critique and positive insights, that's why....no?
Thanks you 2 for all this, as it is the most interresting conversation I've read here for a long time, and congrats for your wins
But you already showed appreciation above. (and, thanks, Zizounai)
Awwww that is a cop out
Not really. I told you that I really don't care about Thumbs ups. You just didn't believe me.

Those leaves add more substance to this image as does the raindrops which cover and make them look luscious.

Lodi apples are delicious. (1 year and 235 days ago)
Yes, they are and all I can think of is apple crumble. Like now you used the dof creatively and filled the frame. Good catch.
