1. I took this for two reasons. First I liked the sky's reflection in the puddle. Second I liked the lines of the contrasting textures. 2. This one was a bit of a disappointment. My eye was on the fisherman laying on the pier. I first shot zoomed in, but the bridge in the background was kind of over powering, so I did this one. It's ok but lacks the intensity of what I had in mind. I also don't like the placement of the pole to the left, but I wanted the suns reflection in that spot so I was kind of stuck. 3. This one I'm mostly happy with excepting the sky. I like the people down at the end because it helps give a sense of scale to the sculpture.
