Wow! You’re progressing very quickly. There is a marked difference between this photograph and your previous photographs. Great work.

You’re getting brave with your compositions by using larger geographic spaces. That being said, you haven’t haphazardly designed your frame. Your lines are straight, you have strong focus and most impressively you’ve managed to organize chaos by simplifying your color palette and using a limited number of objects.

Both of your images have a strong sense of depth (foreground, middle ground and background) and this helps support the illusion of three dimensions. In landscape photographs it also helps give the audience the feeling of “being there”. Great work.

I particularly like the rock in the first image and the railing (leading line) in the second photograph. Both of those objects help guide your viewer’s eyes into the composition. You also have objects in both images that act as ‘stoppers” which gives your viewer’s eyes something to rest on when they are not exploring the rest of your image.

Overall. Great work on this assignment!
