I would like to get you thoughts on the night photo of the Boulder Cafe. You could wait until I submit the re-do for Lesson 10. Thank you.

Thank you. I will re-do this assignment. Unfortunately, these photos were taken in when I was visiting Colorado. I’m up to the challenge!

Thank you so very much for the critique. That is my foot. You don’t miss a thing! I love it!
Also, as I near the end of this course, I was wondering it there is another class to be taken from you. I am learning so much and it has been enjoyable!

What I had in mind when staging this photo was this: A woman doing mechanical work on her car. I added the hat, which one would wear on Sunday. The idea was one doesn’t usually do this type of work with a “hat one would wear to church” perhaps. The other idea is that the lady looks somewhat perplexed as if to say “what do I do next”, or “thinking/trying to figure out the next step in the process. I was trying to create a paradoxical situation incorporating the following things:
1. Mechanic working on auto with “dress-up type” clothing.
2. You will notice the diamond ring on her finger.
3. These items are not usually associated with mechanical type working. In other words, one would expect work type clothing, and certainly not diamond rings on their fingers.
4. I also wanted to give the photo a “vintage” flavor.
5. What would you suggest I may have done to better get these ideas across?’
It was lots of fun putting these ideas together.

Thank you for your comments. I would like to give this another try. I think I can be more creative. Will take another go at it!

Thank you for your critique. I have to admit, I was so excited to know you liked the picture of the wall.
Regarding the login problems, they seem to be resolved.
Thanks again, and onto the the next lesson!

Yes, I did, but wanted to redo to see if I could improve.
I am having trouble with focusing lately. I have be playing with the focusing dial inside the camera. (Canon 20d). Seems when I think it is in focus, it is slightly off. Could this be battery power weakening? Also, when I try to shoot in AV of TV mode, I’m having a bit trouble. Will keep plugging away at it though!
I used a polarizing filter.
