“If you have to explain the photo, it can’t stand on it’s own.” This image needs to be explained. I didn’t want to take the same type of solar eclipse photo. Lot of photographers was shooting with their big lens so I thought I would try a super wide angle. My thought was that I would shoot an image that would show the effect of the solar eclipse on the landscape. Without explanation this image does not stand-alone. It looks like a strange-lit landscape; I failed as a photographer but had a fantastic experience. Guess I’ll try again in seven years.
