Hello ,
I have been a longtime Popular Photography subscriber and usually read it from cover to cover as soon as I get my monthly issue; however, Picture Doctor is my favorite section of this magazine. We can all generally identify a good picture but this section helps me understand why a picture is a good picture. I especially liked the article in the June 2008 issue where an out of focus picture is analyzed. Before reading and seeing this picture, I would have discarded some of my visually pleasing but bit out of focus shots thinking that they were no good…..but now I understand that not everything needs to be sharp to be artistic..

So what do you think of this picture that I took of a High school marching Band at a parade in San Antonio Texas this past April?
