The goal of the photograph (e.g., what the entrant had in mind when the photograph was taken and whether or not the goal was achieved): The goal of my photograph was to capture the sky, pond and some vegetation in the frame.

The emotional connection the entrant has with the photograph: I used to skate on this pond in the winter and go here in the summer, so this place has many good memories for me.

The artistic aspect of the photo (e.g., how the composition makes it an appealing image to the student (e.g., lines, colours, textures): I think the colours make this image appealing.

The scientific aspect of the photo: what fact, natural process or principle that is included or at work in the image; the Biome and/or Ecozone presented in the photo: The biome I took this photo in is a forest biome and also a lakes and rivers biome.

Artist’s Critique (e.g., how the photograph could be improved, e.g. with a different point of view, by getting closer or farther away, through a different time of day or type of sky, in a different season) I think my photo could be improved by waiting till the sun is a bit lower. This way the water would have a nice pink and purple colour.
