It's a matter of perspective, how you visualize things. Is the point of view better in front of you, or behind you? Take a look around, and don't miss all your great vantage points!
For example, this architecture was something I almost missed after passing by. I turned around to take another look. It was so different from this point of view, than from moments before. I could see it in a different light and it had much more potential. I liked the iron railing, the textured wooden doors, and the buildings in the background.
From a creative perspective, I often like to work with an image rather than leave it as recorded by the camera. A nudge towards the artistic side is often what I envision. By individualizing the image with subtle enhancements, the picture can become more expressive and reflect more of what I had in mind when I made the shot.
Like the idea? We'll cover more about this in my November Photoshop course @ BetterPhoto. Make great pictures...
