Sorry about that. Spell check changed a word on me! (I’ve made the changes above)

As for “deconstruction”: it’s the ability to look at your work or other photographer’s work and “deconstruct” the composition. For example, you’ve been able to identify what compositional elements interest you about Ansel’s work. For instance, you’ve identified the importance of a strong foreground object, lighting, background etc).

Actively, looking and analyzing others work is important in understanding what you want out of yourself as a photographer. it’s important to get past the visceral effect of the artwork and look at it from a technical standpoint as well… which you’ve shown the ability of doing in your write-up.

That was what I meant to communicate!

Sorry for the wording mix-up.
