I wish other artists would stop with the nothing-but-barren-tree-branches-in-winter photos. Every artist (myself included) has barren-branch pics; yet these artists think they're so innovative/deep with their shots that ANYBODY can get. OMG people. Keep your branch pics to yourself. Everybody has them. Anybody (including the most inexperienced photographer) can take one that looks good, and they're just plain too easy. If you're a professional photographer, don't offer a product that can be easily duplicated by somebody picking up a camera for the first time. Find a more creative way to express the mood you want to invoke. Isn't that what artists are paid for?
