I generally do not “groom” a scene when I make a photo, such as moving a leaf or adding a flower. I rarely use added light. I tend to enjoy the challenge of working with whatever is in front of me.
One exception I made several years ago was to judiciously toss a few pebbles into a very still pond and wait for the changes to happen. The results I saw were mesmerizing and gorgeous. Even if I’d not pushed the shutter release, I’d have enjoyed what I saw.
