I had once joined a photo critique class led by a professional photographer, bringing a few images that I felt represented me. After taking a few minutes to look at them, the photographer's response was, "Some of these feel incomplete." My heart dropped for a second before he continued saying that a couple of the images hadn't yet reached their full potential. He did feel, however, that my images showed a "joy in nature." It lit a fire in me, and is something that continues to drive me to improve my photography.
