      @james-widmoyer Great collection of photos! I like that you shot from different angles and focused on different subjects. That’s the best way to improve, and it’s also super fun. Which of these subjects was your favourite to photograph?

        Hello Taya. Although my favorite photo is the group of trees on the left, my favorite photo to shoot was the solo tree (upper right photo). The setting is spectacular with rolling grassy hills and sparse trees and ever changing grass tones. It’s an emerald green in the spring and this golden color in the fall! I want to go back and improve on this type of shot, maybe get a bit lower to expose more of the grass. Thanks for you comments.
