That pretty blue sky certainly says "Sun" City. It looks like your weather is clear and nice. I'm guessing that your city is known for being this lucky on most days. I like the converging paths that lead to the sky. Also like the tree and its shadow and how they add to the composition.   Posted: 08/09/2019 11:53:14

Certainly looks like a nice morning! I like how the flowers on the trees..almost a spring like feel. The 2 paths are great leading lines as Carole says. The puffy clouds add to the dimension of image.   Posted: 08/12/2019 13:33:43

I, too, like the converging diagonals of the side walks. I think the long shadows of the trees add dimension to the scene. You exposed this strongly back-lit scene perfectly. You really do live in a lovely place, Walter. It's interesting that most of us thought only of bad weather. But you realized that a bright sunny day is weather also. I like your interpretation of the subject.   Posted: 08/22/2019 20:03:17

I, too, found it most interesting that most of us thought of BAD weather! Maybe that's human nature?! When I first saw this sunny scene, I thought "Where's the weather?" Then I realized that it was GOOD weather! You gave us the needed variety!   Posted: 08/23/2019 10:58:12

Looking at most images of Arizona, it's rare I see them of green grass in the middle of summer. This would be a good reflection photo too, as my eye follows the tree's reflections. I like the blue sky as it brings out the photo's colors with the grass.   Posted: 08/25/2019 23:19:55

Nice into the depth leading lines, Walter. Well captured morning mood. And I do love these flowers, the whole tree would be even better. So I would cut the picture above so the viewer's eye would concentrate on the tree shadow. What do you think?   Posted: 08/30/2019 12:18:59

I like the way this crop emphasizes the tree shadow on the grass even though "shadows" wasn't the assigned subject.   Posted: 08/30/2019 14:07:00
