My best photo is one that I recently took of a pink rose that is bent over because it has ice and snow on top of it. I think it is a good photo because it is such an unusual thing, roses are rarely around when it snows, so catching that moment is very fortunate. I used the macro function on my camera got in close to the flower. I took this photo recently and I haven't improved it on photoshop yet, and I'm sure that once I do I can improve many aspects of this photo, especially the color and I want to try and make the background less busy.
I feel like I have grown a lot as a photographer, I no longer just point and shoot with my camera, but I take my time and think about the best way to capture the photo. I keep the Kodak tips in mind and try to use as many of tehm as I can in every photo. I have learned that I want to capture pictures that have a meaning and a feeling behind them, looking cool isn't necessarily my focus, but good quality photographs are.
