Its with great intrepidation that i upload this photo. Not just because it came out completely different from what i had intended, but because St Monans pier has been heavily photographed by every scottish photographer and his granny. Its almost like a bench mark, a sign of how good you are.
Well i couldnt do long exposure, the tide was out.
I couldnt do sunset, it was 3pm.
So this is my shot of St Monans Pier.
My hesitation comes the from fear of being judged. Although i might tell myself i dont care and im taking photographs for my own enjoyment... i wouldnt be uploading them i didnt want to share them and hopefully get a bit of feedback. A few favs and comment is great, but its not really a true reflection of how good the shot is. Its more a reflection of how many people have seen it and felt compeld to hit that little star. A shot on explore with 30K views isnt really a sign of talent.
Photography is a long and bumpy journey and when you start you dont realise where it will take you. I certainly didnt. I never started with idea of being an "artist", i still dont. but it seams impossible to dodge.
