I still go "awww... *sadface*" when I see some of the entries in comparison to my own. Someone told me once that "Your pics may not look as good to YOU because you see them often; When you take it, when you edit it, when you upload it... so you're USED to it, thus it doesn't look as awesome as it actually is!" ... But it doesn't always help XD.
yeah i love making things that help with my photogrpahy XD i currently have more stuff in the works
try new things and eventually it will click i have had diffrent little clicks every 3 months or so XD highspeed - HDR - fisheye - panoramic - macro ... all of that ... eventually something will stick but i like to dip in to a little of everything
