1. This photo was taken by Kris Musser. His settings are ISO 80 focal length 4mm f/3.1 1/1250s. I really like the teal water and the blue sky. I would suggest maybe working on making the horizon a little straighter. I believe his settings are a little off, I don't think that the time needed to be as fast as 1/1250 seconds and a f-stop of closer to 8 would have included more detail of the peaks in the background. This photo makes me want to travel and hike to wherever Kris took this image because he makes this lake look very inviting, even with the snow covered rocks.
2. This photo was taken by Katie in Yellowstone. Her settings were f 5.6 1/60 sec ISO 200 47mm. I believe this picture turned out really great with the vivid colors of the Bison and of the rolling hills in the background. There has been a lot of Bison pictures out there but this one is very interesting with the composition of the Bison and the background. In my opinion her settings were spot on and I would not have changed anything about the settings. Looking closely the face could be a little bit more in focus but I believe that this would take away some of the detail in the background of this picture which I think is the reason this picture is such a strong picture.
3. This photo was also taken by Katie in Yellowstone at Liberty Cap. This is one of my favorite images I have seen so far. I really enjoy the amount of stars in the sky and the fact that the Liberty Cap is still in color and visible. Her settings were f 3.5 30 sec ISO 3200 20mm. These settings were spot on. There isn't anything I would do differently. I love that the milky way starts to appear in the sky as well as the green in the foreground. I would love to try to replicate this picture because I just find it absolutely fantastic.
4. This photo was taken by Kyler. I really wish I could see his settings but because it was taken by an iPhone but I really like this photo. I like the black and white in this picture because it's something different than most ocean and palm tree pictures. I think this photo would be really incredible if it was taken on a normal camera instead of the iPhone. I think that if he would have brought all of the tree on the left into the picture it would look a little bit better because he wouldn't have half of a picture. But overall I really like this picture and I would hang it on my wall.
5. This photo was taken my Tiffanie Pope with the settings of f/5.3 1/1250sec. ISO-100 42mm on a Motorola cell phone. I was very shocked to see that this picture was taken on a cell phone because it is very clear. I really like the pops of red that come into the picture through the branches. I think that the shutter speed is slightly high but other than that the settings are really good. I think that it is an interesting photo and I like the icicles on the tree.
6. This photo was taken by Nancy Robinson. I really enjoy the colors in this sunset and the way that the clouds look like birds. Her settings were ISO: 100, Focal Length: 55mm, f/8.0, 1/25s. I really like that she darkened the foreground to bring the attention to the colors of the sky. The settings seemed decent but they could be tweaked a little bit to bring the best out of the sunset.
7. This photo was taken by Alicia Cadrette. I really like this picture. I tried to do something similar but mine did not turn out nearly as well as hers. Her settings were ISO 1000, F7.1 and 1/1999s. Exposure Time: 1 / 1999. I think that these settings worked really well for her. The F7.1 gave her a large depth of field which makes the drops in the background more in focus. I also like the color of the rock compared to the color of the mud spewing out of the thermal feature. I love that her fast shutter speed stopped the splashing in mid splash making the droplets very clear.
8. This photo was taken by Cole Broadus. I really like the idea behind this picture. I have seen a few pictures done like this and find them really interesting. I think that it would have been neat if the black ring of the spotting scope was visible throughout the whole image and not just in 3 corners but instead in 4. His settings were 18mm-55mm lens, No Flash, Focal Length 33mm, ISO 400, f/4.5, 1/60sec. The image quality could be upped a little bit but I think that part of the clarity is lost in the ISO 400. Maybe if he were to have gone down to about a ISO 200 it wouldn't have taken away the clarity of the picture. Overall I think this is a good thing to try and I really like the attempt at using the spotting scope to take a closer shot.
9. This photo was taken by Richard Umfleet. I really like the vertical take on this picture. Normally landscape images are in horizontal so I like that this one is different. Also, the sun coming across the peaks of the mountain create a really interesting detail in the peaks. His settings were f/11, ISO-100, 75mm, 1/90sec. I think that his settings in this picture were very good making it the best it could be. I think that it was the correct aperture and shutter speed.
10. This photo was taken by Kacie Stone. I really love the colors in this photo with the silhouette of the tree in the corner. I think that the pinks and blues in this image make it a very powerful picture and her choice to keep the tree in the bottom corner makes it even more interesting. Her settings were ISO: -200, Focal length: 18mm, EXP: 1/90, APT: 4.52. I really think her settings worked out well for her and I think this is a great image.
