Thank you to everyone who responded to my "blue" assignment here and in person. It seems the ring has it!
One of the things that I love about a photgraphy class is that it forces me to really compose an image and take into consideration all of the elements that comprise a good shot. My second class assignment is a close-up, and must contain all of the general rules of composition; varying levels of interest, diagonal lines, an object in focus, and a repeated pattern of some kind. So here are the new contenders.
So, which, to you, fits the bill?
