"First, the Einstein (corrected) Quote,... is also a bit of ol' (corrected) Albert having a laugh, as half of 'scientific method' is repeating experiments over and over to make sure the results don't vary, before repeating them with small changes to see how they vary."

You just do not get it!

Read up. This is of the STREET SCENE variety. It was not posed and the person is unknown to the OP.

Your shutter speed was 80. Try it bracketed at 120 e.g. Go manual if necessary. Very nice scene.

My preference is for a faster shutter speed so the flowing water looks more natural.

Where did the expression, "A picture is worth a thousand words." come from if it does not convey the same meaning to everyone!

If one is to capture images one must know what the essence of photography is, i.e. the product.

A photograph should mean the same to everyone who views it. It transcends time and culture. Check it out!

Nice portrait. Is she reminiscing about being the Centerfold in J. Geils Band in 1982?.

Albert Einstein is widely credited with saying “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.

I noted immediately above the photo, "On the tails of the prior challenge this is a way to avoid getting huge ! "

For sure you you can't make heads or tails out of sardines which have no head or tail.

Amen, at least you give positive critique! Practice makes perfect...I don't know a thing about photography, also still learning, but if you want to become a marksman, you practice as much as you can, you'll never do so by locking away your gun and just dreaming about it..
For someone who writes "I don't know a thing about photography you sure have a lot to say, EH !

I, one the other hand have done it all in my 70 + years, grew up with it, took many courses from the best in person, know much about it and taught it.

I am also a winning marksman.

Write a caption for this photo.

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention.
Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post.

Important: whether you submit an entry or not, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen!

The Thread Starter is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. Respondents have the period through July 15, 2014 to submit entries, then we'll leave the voting open for 1 more day. The winner will be announced on July 17, 2014.

In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie.
The winner of that contest will be notified by PM by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned.

Reading as well as understanding learning appear to be problems.
Practicing mistakes leads to "Perfect" mistakes. Ergo, old habits die hard.
Walk before you run.
I simply advised to learn about basic photography (which should take only a few hours) then try to make pictures.

Off Camera Flash for Your Travel Photography

The above gives anther perspective on the use of FLASH.

If you got a gun. Would you just start pulling the trigger?

You would put it away until you learned how to use it.

Judge the advice from whence it comes.

When I taught photography I supplied my students with empty 35 mm slide frames. They looked through them at every opportunity to learn to see various compositions. They had an idea before they ever used a camera. The mind's eye is to be trained.

The depth of field is too shallow so the out of focus right eye and the airplane are distractions. The problem is likely the choice of lens.

The use of flash is always recommended especially if it is bounced or as fill-in, even through a white handkerchief.

Check your photos immediately so you can take another if necessary.

Learn to "SEE" not just "LOOK".

Read some books or find free on line.

Good luck.
