    Birdhouse - Squares, rectangles, circles, triangles:
    American flag - Lines, rectangles, stars!
    and finally, another piece of America - circles, curved and intersecting lines and.... a PROLATE SPHEROID!! (God bless wikipedia)
    Welcome to Dgrin and to the Class! clap.gif
    And thank you for the entries! thumb.gif
    Now my suggestion is to start with the most recent one and then play catchup later deal.gif

    Emma,
    thank you for the entries!

    The first two fit the bill nicely, however the last two are too much complex, I think...

    Any thoughts?
    I'd say the image is a bit overcomplicated with all those chaotic haycubes, but since there are also nice lines and triangles on the wagons, that's ok.
    I think it would be a clearer image if you just framed it to one load...
    In any case, don't sweat it, there are more fesh ones :-) mwink.gif

    Ya, I like that one too... and there's so many great ways to crop it to do different things. I went with the most boring crop on this assignment, since it was supposed to be circular. :) I'm sure I'll be using that image a lot to make other things.

    I would only suggest to work your way backwards: always participate in the most recent assignment, and only then catch up with the past. deal.gif
    I's rather see you producing one solid entry per week than 52 "weak" ones..;-) mwink.gif

    Assignment #1
    216255308-S-1.jpgI am new here and I decided the best way to learn is to participate here - this is my attempt at Simple Shapes & Lines.
    I shot this photo today at Minnippi Parklands in Brisbane.
    Hope it is suitable
