Making a Selection

…can be very hard.

Since the start of the new year, I have taken thousands of images. I have had so many opportunities to take different types of images, and I am really grateful for them. I have seen a lot of improvement since I first started, and I see it keep on growing. What is hard now, is I am going to be making a large print of one of my images, and I need to narrow down the thousands of images to just one. After much work, I was able to narrow it down to these five. I would love for your thoughts and opinions as to which one I should choose, so please leave a comment at the end of the post! Thank you in advance! Also at the end, I have an image from my recent trip down to Utah, let me know what you think!

Macro Plant

I went on a travel study class to SLC and Provo this last week! As I was testing lighting, I got a super over exposed image. Normally I’d throw that away; it was mostly white, with sparce, little patches of blue. Instead of deleting it, I left it in my camera till I got back to the hotel room and set my computer up. The thought came to look at it as a negative. So glad I did, and I hope you do too!

Negative of SLC Temple
This image was taken using a 1/160 of a second exposre, f/4.5, ISO 200, and a 18mm focal length. Negative image was made using an adjustment layer in Photoshop.


  1. I like the macro plant. It’s a very pretty picture with the vibrant green and the detail in it is awesome, it gives a perspective you can’t normally see so well with the naked eye.
