The second one is of the marigolds in the backyard.
The third one is of the gates, but not a closeup. Ok, So I have one more, this is my fave:
I had to take 5 tech shots. 1 picture of a pic on the Instructors door, 1 pic at dusk (Ok, so it was dusk or dawn and we all know I do not do Dawn!), 1 pic at noon on a sunny day, 1 pic at noon on an overcast day and 1 inside under incandescent light. Of those 5, only three, MAYBE 4 turned out. :-(
So, that is my world. These four pics will be my final set for critique. I may choose one more, if I do, I will post it.
