Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
When I was browsing through the straight-off-the-camera images, I thought this one was pretty "meh". But my wife picked it as her fave from the session. Hmmm. So when I was post-processing it, I took a better look and decided, yeah, you know, it was alright. And less than 24 hours after posting it to Google+, it's become the most liked photo I've got there with the most +1s (Google+'s version of "like") by a long shot. Now, the +1 count is influenced by the time, day of week, and communities to which you post. Also, I've observed that how you title a photo greatly affects how people view it and respond to it. And the title I gave this one was pretty good, and certainly apropos. So I'm going to work harder for compelling titles whenever possible in the future. But there's a much more important lesson here: Listen to the woman. She knows things about things.
