  • this photo gives me the feeling of tranquility and freedom.
  • I feel the picture is balanced by the contrast between the rocky mountain side and the blue refection of the sky in the river.
  • The lighting is coming from the natural light given off by the sun in the clear sky.
  • I find the use of texture in this picture very balance by the rough trees and mountain side compared to the smooth shimmering skin of the mature river.
  • the photo appears that the focus on this shot is balanced throughout the photo and that the photographer is trying to show all elements of the photo equally, and let the photo its self highlight the more important parts.
  • the background of this photo shows the sky and another mountain given you an idea of the surroundings of the photo
  • I think the photo is about the the river and is shore line.

  • the lighting in this photo is natural light coming from the end of the tunnel.
  • I this photo's contrast of texture with the robe and the rocky tunnel really bring out the softness of the woman's skin
  • The focus of this photo is the woman, more specifically the woman's face. By surrounding the rest of her body and head by a cloak, the photographer makes a short of highlighting affect through by taking the light away from other parts of the photo.
  • I think by using the background of a tunnel give good support to them emotional state of the photo.
