Vision

"Vision without execution is hallucination." - Thomas A. Edison.

Many of us have many ideas for what we want to produce photographically. But what do you do about it?

Capturing great images is just part of the process for creating photographic art. It may only be 1/3rd of the work. You also need to weed through the bulk of the images you have captured and select the ones that tell the story you have in mind. Then you have to finish (as in develop) the image so it looks it's very best. So far so good, but there is more. Next you need to create the output; the print, web page, book, or video.

Finally, share the result. Maybe you do this for your exclusive pleasure, but for most sharing beautiful imagery with others is the end game.
