PHOTO STAFF CRITIQUE

“The warm lighting, the composition and the nontraditional approach to capture the landscape made the photo work. The photographer is seen in the mirror and is nicely lit by the warm sunlight. She is in focus, and the distant landscape is sharp enough. The line of the car’s reflection in the mirror drives your eye toward the hills on the horizon. Nice positioning of the mirror on the bottom left, and the hills are just above and to the right of center. Encircling cloud formations finish off the photo and definitely add to it.”
