What makes a Photo Popular

Don't really know (yet). But the included one definitely had some good feedback on several social media. There is some kind of pattern though. High contrast, going from dark to light (or the other way around), a lot of patterns/lines and a leading line, some ingredients for a nice photo. Oh and reflections also adding to it. I like it myself as well.

For a change some 45mm f/1.8 Pictures

Since some time used the 45mm/f.18 lens, iso. of my default one, nowadays the 17mm/f1.8. Need to get used again to the narrow view. No shooting from the hip possible anymore, did do some but all missed target. You need to use the view finder to hit something. And so I did the, few, pictures in this post are all taken by looking through the viewfinder. With my 17mm I shoot quite a lot from the hip.
