Really love them, Kivia! My favourite out of the new ones is definitely the sunset, greyscale one. They're all really great, though! Thank you once again for sharing these.

Thanks guys! Yeah with the flowers they are semi-altered, but not by much. I'm currently trying to find the original file on one of my other SD cards. But like I said, I only adjusted the contrast and brightness of photos. I remember taking that photo when the sun was going down and the light was coming right at them- made it so purple. =O

The forest sunset one is probably my favorite too. I like taking photos at dusk, haha. The lighting is great during that time of day if the sun is out.

Psh, I'm far from a guru haha. And yeah if you want to use any photos as a reference, I don't mind. Just these photos I post though unless I say otherwise~

man, i really, really love that corn photo. idk if it's because i'm from the south and i'm just naturally drawn to Corn™, but i really like the perspective and the sharpness of the stalks as well as the softness of the sky. it kinda creates this atmosphere that's both comforting and slightly foreboding-- like, i kinda feel like i could wander through there, but at the same time i feel as if i might be being watched.

Oh wow your choice of greyscale really makes that sunset pic look magical! I'm really drawn to that one out of the three you posted.

Thanks guys! Glad you like 'em.

I do have some other things, but I'll just share one photo for now. It's about 3 years old. It's more along the lines of what I really love though.

Wow! I absolutely love the shot of the leaves in the water. It's almost like an illusion, how everything 'pops'. Amazingly stunning.

that junco shot is actually... morbidly beautiful? i love the focus of it, and the lack of color makes the subject that more defined. it's also a bit of a compliment-- absence of color coupled with an absence of life. great work!

Very lovely photos, Kivia-kins! You've got mad photography skills (and oh shoot, I just dated myself with my choice of slang).

You've got a good eye for analyzing photography and describing deeper meanings. =)

Thank you all for the kind words- I'm taking another class now that requires more photographs (including the junco I just posted), so I'll be posting more soon~

I haven't posted in a while, but I hope to post some pics that I take while I'm on spring break. Here is something from last summer.

I went barn owl banding a week ago, and got a few pictures. A lot of them have me in them, but here's one that only has my arm (that unfortunately looks like I'm shoving it up the poor owl's bum).
