Go back!

If there is a particular subject that  you like, I suggest you go back multiple times to photograph it. The more you study a subject, the better your understanding of how to photograph it.

Some of the angles are different and the overall vision of the subject. Notice the distant shot in 2008 and the closeup in 2016. Which do you think is best?
