Should I be proud or ashamed that I can actually hide in my own garden due to the fact that it is so overgrown

Post Challenge

Well I got another bit of a mauling from the voters but to be honest I can see why. Waldo (aka me!) is well hidden but is the photo actually interesting (ie if it was not for the Waldo challenge then would I have taken it?) The answer to this is probably no. Still on the positive side I did manage to fool ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous which did make me happy (I am very easily pleased)

Thanks for the comments a couple of which will be very useful interms of how to shoot for future challenges

Your subject (the english country garden) doesn't capture my interest.

Meets the challenge, and actually looks not unlike what my English garden looked like until I pulled out everything that didn't look like a tree that belonged there.

Okay, he's there, but the photo is just a jumble of plants that doesn't bring to mind my image of an English Country Garden.

I like the contrast between the pink and green, but there isn't a lot in the shot to hold the viewer's interest

Good hiding spot... just enough to blend in with the flowers.

Well hidden, but there's a serious white balance problem in the photo, giving a blue cast to all the plants. When shooting in cloudy light, it's often necessary to switch to manual white balance, and set it to a cloudy day setting. This will keep the rich greens true to colour.
