You may be correct. It just may be that I can't see (yet) what I need to see in the landscape to make a strong photograph; structure, on the other hand, makes more sense to me, and I think I'm more able to distill the essence of the scene.

Perhaps, like Weston, my seeing will continue to get stronger, to the point when I can start seeing the essence in the landscape.

I'll just have to make sure that I don't abandon that which I find difficult to pursue that which comes easily.

Wow, that's (unintentionally) deep :shock:

This thread is turning into a good discussion.
