I've been experimenting with square images. I think this format works particularly well with macro photos...as this one is.
The only issue is it's a bit difficult finding square frames.

At one point in my 365 project I got it in my head that taking photos of flowers was cheating because they were so easy. Once I got over that I find that flowers help me get through those times I've feeling a bit non-creative. The last few days I've spent strolling the many public gardens around Monterey where flowers are almost always in bloom year round.

One thing that I learned from my 365 project was that I really enjoyed trying to make painterly photos. One way to do this was to use a long exposure and motion. I get quite a bit of satisfaction out of creating something that some people do in post all in camera.

I met up with over 50 other photographers last Saturday to celebrate the one year anniversary of Google+ by going out on a photowalk. We met at this little blip on the map north of Santa Cruz and ventured down on the beach for part of the day and then down into Santa Cruz for dinner and some street photography. Big Sur has the most beautiful coast views but between Santa Cruz and San Francisco runs a very close second.

Someone called the shot "crunchy"...not sure what they meant. This was on a gaming forum in a photography thread...where for some reason my shots are the only ones that get any kind of negative critiques.
Is the shot good? bad? I have no clue anymore...
