Capturing the feeling of "Surprise" appears to have cause some difficulty for this week's captures. I was unable to capture any of the expression or feeling which left me without a submission.
Two submissions from Rob and Greg this week also stretch the feeling, but it is one from the capturer's point of view with what they felt. I guess that is the beautiful thing of photography in that the theme can be hit or miss depending on the various views or interpretation from a different point of view. Stumbling upon a random cat in my yard, yes, I too would be surprised and delighted, hence Rob's point of view for capturing the feeling. To us, it is just a moment with a cat loafed on a deck railing. Same goes for Greg in being surprised that the farmer has such a late harvest for their corn where the stalks are now dead and crunchy. Point of view matters when it comes to the artistic side of photography to get a feeling instilled in your observer.
