Hi Pentaxian friends.

When I see an exceptional photograph, I either take a picture of it, import it or simply write down the idea behind the shot. I won't ever repeat exactly what another photographer has shot, but I often try to mimic the technique or point-of-view.

No matter how good you are, you will always see some images that will make you wish it was yours. When I think I have a great shot, I usually visit's Top Rated Photos and it usually gives me a change-of-attitude. I have my share of what I think are good pictures, but looking at so many extraordinary images is an humbling experience. See for yourself and learn from it.

It's even more humbling when you look at the Photo of the Week.

So next time you think your pictures are the best in the world, you too may need an attitude adjustment. Visit the links above and re-evaluate how good you are. Like everything in life, it seems that there is always someone a few steps ahead of you. 

Thank you for stopping by, and go take the next Picture of the Week.
