The challenge is to find interest and depth BEYOND the subject framed in the photo.
Although I can’t take credit for Taking the photo, since it is a picture of me, can I say it was my idea/my instructions/my choice of location?
Anyway, it is a fair shot of me, an excellent shot of what is beyond me…the remains of the ancient Greek Theatre in Taormina, Sicily, Italy, and beyond that, the bay lapping at Giardini Naxos near the bottom of the shot and a quiet Mt. Etna in the top right.
AND, I just realized that the header on my blog is ALSO taken in Taormina, Sicily, out of my hotel window, of the towers of an old villa, with a snow-covered Mt. Etna BEYOND in the background!
