Why do photos taken in full auto mode are more interesting? Why they have that impact? Yes, exposure is bad and other stuff, but there are moments captured! That is important, capturing moments.

Look Mummy, I made a Picture!

I know, my exposure should be +1/3 EV, composition should be different, I don’t like that stand behind … but these are just technical things but it has that important part for me – MOMENT!
