Remember these thoughts from Nancy Katz:
You just have to go to the bottom of your driveway to take a great shot.
You can't make a bad shot great even with Snapseed.
Edit your images fairly and don't be in love with your images; let them go if you have to.
Life's greatest secret is knowing when to stop.
