: Boring photos?

I feel like my photos are very unoriginal and bland. My friends, family, photography teachers have all told me I'm very skilled and have lots of potential, but I'm still not pleased with my work. I do mainly macro /nature shots but I feel like I should be doing portraits instead. Here are some of my better nature pics, are they as boring as I think they are?

Also I have taken photos that tell a story/have a meaning using a human subject and people reacted very positively to them. That's why I was thinking about just doing pictures like that.

I don't find these photos boring at all. I agree with your family and teachers you have a great talent and are much too hard on yourself.

If I were you I would follow my urges when it comes to what to photo. If doing portraits seems like more fun than nature then go for it.

Thank you. I have a problem haha!

We all tend to be hard on ourselves. Listen to others, especially teachers and professionals, they will help.
