I believe I am still developing my photographic vision. I know what subjects I like as well as those that I dislike and I also know that my tastes are changing.

Years ago I took photos because I just liked the subject yet recently I have found that I am drawn to images/subjects that are sub-selections of the whole subject. In effect I am drawn in closer and selecting abstracts or a particular detail.

Another trend is to see images within others images, a mental cropping process, including in my own work. Is this a restrictive growth? or part of my development?

I take examples ofimages (some from the APUG galleries) and play with them in PS to isolate what it was about the image that I like.

Does anyone else do this? and if so is it ethical to put this forward as my interpretation, my critique or suggestion, as this would speak louder than words.
