Hi there,

Nice job. This is much better if only because it forced you to do something unusual with your image. I would guess that about 90% of all photographs are shot at eye level. How boring right?

One of the simplest things you can do to improve your images is to think about that. I’m just as guilty as the next guy on this.

You’ve done well here and I want you to keep this lesson in mind as you move through the course. The goal of this lesson is not that you should always shoot weird angles and perspectives, the goal is twofold. For one it’s just to get you going with your submissions. Second, it’s to get you to start asking yourself questions when you shoot. A good photographer will ask himself a whole series of questions in his mind as he creates a photograph. Over time those questions become almost automated once the technical stuff is second nature. Each photographer has a different series of questions they ask. For instance how is the composition of this image? Or is it in focus? What about depth of field? etc etc You will develop your own internal dialog as you improve.

I think you get the idea.

Don’t forget, if you want to really learn here try to make your image not only meet the criteria of the assignment but also try to make them good photos. This is easier said than done but nothing worth doing is easy!

Whatever the case you’ve done well and I look forward to your next assignment.

Oh and here is the EXIF:
