Photo Field Trip!

edit5

I chose this picture because I like the the contrast between the colors. I think they are balanced well. This has good photo composition because it is close up.

edit

I chose this picture because the past fews days were rainy and cloud, but the sun finally decided to peek out. This follows the rule of thirds because if there were a grid overlay, the sun would land on the upper left corner of the grid.

I like this picture of the tiger because it gives a different mood. The head fits perfectly into the rule of thirds and the picture is close up.

edit1

I like this picture of the tiger because it has a different dramatic affect. It also shows a lot of detail. The picture has good composition because the flags are in the upper third and the body of the tiger are in the middle third. Also, the bottom third has the plaque which describes why the tiger is there.
