nature excursions pt. 1 by beckhanson nature excursions pt. 1 by beckhanson
these 4 photos are part of a set, kinda. well, i think they just look better as a group. i took these on some nature walks lately, trying to get a good one to draw (maybe). but all of them have tons of trees and stuff, so i'm not sure if i can quite handle that yet. i apologize for the crap quality, my digital camera is kinda old. all the pictures were really grey and dingy, so i had to up the colors with my crappy image program. and save them in jpg form a couple times, which lowered the quality even more.

this particular one was of a sunset outside of belmond, ia. i parked on the side of this gravel road and walked around snapping pictures, while the locals drove by really slow staring me down, like they'd never seen somebody take photos before. i took a ton of photos but this one was the best in terms of color and composition. the scene was a lot more beautiful, but my camera wouldn't pick up any of the lighting on the ground. i need a new camera.

anyway, of these four photos i'm submitting, i'd really appreciate to hear which one you like the best and which one would make the best drawing. thank you for looking!

wonderful photo, i've seen concepts and colors like this but there's something unique, chilling, and mysteriously beautiful about this one. ♥

I had a look at all 4 of your nature shots, and this one appeals to me the most for some reason. I'm afraid I'm not quite sure WHAT it is... it's a feeling. =D I think it might be because its colours look the most natural , or maybe the near-perfect reflection in the water...

Well, regardless of the reason, I must say I love this photo! ^_^ Nobody can tell that it's low-res when it's zoomed out ;)

If I had to attempt to draw a scene with lots of trees, I'd pick this one.

All four of your pictures were wonderful, and I felt each captured a unique scene. I like this one the best because of the amazing colors. Very nice pics :)

This is a really cool picture. All four are good, but of the four, this is my favorite. But, I think #3 would make the most interesting drawing. It kind of has a story waiting to be told, or at least I see one there.

thank you for your feedback. #3 would probably be the hardest to draw, since some of the tree areas are just kinda fuzzy. but yes, the composition and amount of detail would look great in a drawing. i really like this one as well. thanks again!

thank you for the feedback. i quite like this one too, though it's hard to say. i'm not too sure if it'd make a great drawing though, because of all the black in the trees and land. it's definitely one of my top two favs though, thanks again for your nice comment!
