It is all about lighting
It is not about what you like, it is all about what the viewers/readers like. Sometimes I post some photographs which I liked very much, and no one else liked it. At times, I post something which I did not appreciate at all, and to my surprise, it is liked by many.
Very often simplicity is appreciated.
The equipment you have at the moment is the best equipment. Very often the best photographs of mine happened with my mobile phone camera.
