My land scape image was taken a while ago at Kalapaki beach. From my understanding, value was a huge key in this landscape image. The lightness and darkness changes drastically throughout the image. Because I was absent while we did this piece, I mainly stuck to the tutorial that we were given. I played with the adjustments a little bit, but it seemed that it looked best as the default. The still image took a bit more focus and effort where as the landscape image was easier and more of a "follow the directions" kind of thing.
The portrait photo that I used for this last piece is of my little sister. We were by the rock wall by Amonias. This picture means a lot to me because it shows her really goofy side and it was just a really fun day. Several of the Elements of Art were used in this were line, value, and attempted texture.
My highest result from the critique was on my mixed piece. I received one 4 on it and in my opinion, I think they were just being nice. There was a lot I could still work on if time permitted. My lowest score, however, was all the 2's on my still image. It was not finished and it was obvious. I do agree with my overall critique results though. Like mentioned before, if I had the time, I do believe that I could have done a lot of a better job. This project was fun and taught me about time management and how being absent for two days can really mess up the progress of this art.
