1: Camp Barakel I took this photo at Camp Barakel in Fairview. There is good variety in it. I like the fence in the far background, the straight lines of the plants sticking through the snow, and the needle clusters in the upper left hand corner. This needle cluster, along with the tree branch opposite it, frame the photo, making it look very wooded all around. There is good texture in the clouds.
2: Overlook I took this photo of the view of Lake Huron by my house. I like the moody feel to it. There is a good value range in this photo. | The tree limb is black, the clouds are gray, and the snow is white. The tree branch in the upper right-hand corner is the focal point, | because it is the darkest object in the photo. The photo has a good sense of movement from the trail in the snow leading down the hill to the lake.
3: Birch Tree Bark I like how some of the bark in this photo is peeling off, and I like the straight horizontal dashes on the bark. The dark holes in the tree provide good contrast to the bright snow in the background. The point of interest in this photo is the large black hole in tree on the left side of the photo, as it is the darkest part of the photo.
4: Needle-burst In this photo there is a good contrast between the dark needles and the white snow. The framing of this photo draws my attention to the needle-burst, | because it is in the upper right corner and spreads throughout the rest of the photo. The closest needle-burst is in focus and the rest are out of focus, giving the photo depth.
5: Snow Crystals I like the focus of this picture. The clump of needles in the foreground is very clear, and the cluster in the background is out of focus. This gives the photo nice depth. | The overlapping needles in each cluster create a sense of shallow space. The closer needle clump overlaps the other clump, creating a sense of deeper space. | There are a lot of straight lines in this photo from the pine needles. The snow on the needles has good texture and detail, because you can see the individual snowflakes.
