    these are the first prints i have done since the beginning of the semester. The first 3 were done on my drive from San Diego to Des Moines shot with hp5 400. The second two were for our second assignment in which we had to shoot an entire roll of hp4+125/36 on one single statue on our campus. The last one i shot last week for a architecture assignment, its PanF+50 and im really excited for the rest of the roll

    #1 is to symetrical for my taste.

    I digg #2 with the road leading you on, strong diagonal and overall great composition.

    The telephone pole in 3 adds a bit of tension to an interesting tree. Well done

    So that's what HP5 looks like? Interesting...

    Anyways:
    1) Read up on the Rule of Thirds
    2) Nice composition, contrast is a little strong for me.
    3-6) Nice shots. #4 could benefit from a little fill-flash, see if you can save up for a cheap flash that would be (completely random, uneducated guess) $20-50 used.
