What am I looking at?

A few weeks ago I shared one of my images with a professional photographer. As he looked at my picture the first thing he said was “What am I looking at?”. It struck me as a little curious at first but when I thought about it it became clear. As I looked at the picture it became clear that it did not have a clear subject.


So I had to ask myself the same question. What is the subject of this image? After some thought I decided that the water towers were the subject. I did some post-processing in Lightroom to emphasize that fact.


The moral of the story, of course, is that we should ask ourselves when we take a picture what is the subject of our image and if we have done enough to guide others to the same conclusion.
