I almost didn't post this photo, because it highlights a limitation of the camera I used to take it (no pun intended!) and I hate when that happens. Mind you, almost any camera I used to take this photo would likely have suffered similarly (blown highlights due to the camera sensor's inability to capture the full range of tones from bright sunlight to moderately deep shadows) but in this case, I didn't think they completely ruined this photo, so here it is...

That said, you will never see a print of it hanging on a gallery wall for sale, either. While I am sometimes willing to share my "would have / could have / should have" photos here in return for feedback from viewers like you, I will never sign my name to a print and accept payment for it if I am not completely satisfied with it. One of the perqs of being an amateur instead of a professional is that I don't need my photography to feed me and that freedom is very important to me.
