Photo #2: This photo is nice because even though the elk are small, they are the center point for the photograph. They are almost lost in the field of dried grass but the dark part of their heads poke out. I like the naturalness to this scene. There is a good foreground and then center, which is the elk, and then the background. The natural colors were caught nicely in this photograph.

Photo #3: A nice choice was made in making this photograph black and white. It makes the photo very strong. The three bison is pleasing to the eye because there is an odd number of them captured. On parts of the bison, white specks of snow are captured because they are so dark. The layers of trees in the background are somewhat haunting, but beautiful.

Photo #4: This picture captures reflection of the sun very nicely on snow. It just looks like a regular pine cone until the sun hits it just right. The closeness of this photograph is very nice. The photographer took into account to help the viewer be at almost eye level of the pine cone. Also, from the reflection, the snow appears to be a blanket of blue rather than white, but this adds to the photo. Beautiful.

Photo #5: This photo also gains beautifully from being in black and white. First this is a very nice reflection picture. Also the rocks cause for a good foreground, almost causing a line or barrier from the water that leads to the rest of the picture. The dock on the left helps to lead you to the tree line of eerie pines. The smoke-screen effect from the fog adds nicely to the mood of this photograph: quite, peaceful, and even somber.

Photo #6: Once again, the blue in the sky captures my eye. My eye in this photo start from the bottom right of the foreground and climb up the steps to the left to the trees and then are guided back to the right of the steps and to the steam and up to the gap of sky through the clouds. Very nice capture of colors in the sky.

Photo #7: This is another photograph that is also strong because it is black and white. It is also another good representation of reflection in the water. The reflection in the water of the tree leads the eye from the water and up to the actual tree. The rocks sticking up out of the water also form a natural diagonal line that cuts along the photo. This photograph also has an eerie appeal due to the fog.

Photo #8: This photograph is eye catching because of the bright white streaks of lightening caught, lighting up the blue and purple night sky. The blackness of the city below is light up too with little dots of lights. The lightening strikes lead the eye downward to the horizon line. The light coming from the left side, radiating from the bluish, purple clouds is a nice effect.

Photo #9: This is also another photograph that is nice in black and white. These sparkles of water droplets look almost like little Christmas lights glowing in the night, wrapped around a gate or something. But they are just drops of water caught just right by the light. The blurred, grey background is nice as the background for the close-up of the water drop scene.

Photo #10: I like this photograph for the almost pale colors in the sky. I like how the roads sweeps in from the right-hand side and then carries the eye along from the foreground and leading eventually along to the left and on to the mid-ground. The fence posts almost run parallel to the road alongside and then a natural bend sweeps the eye to the hill tops in the background. The pinks and blues and purple and oranges turn to almost pastels, coloring the sky.
