    I set out to see if I could catch a nice sunset the day I took this picture. The picture wasn't very appealing to me until I increased the saturation and contrast. That brought out the red and orange colors in the sky. I also hadn't realized I aligned the sun in the center of the tree - that was a pleasant surprise. Good sunsets are hard to judge. Sometimes you're lucky sometimes you're not. The more you try, the luckier you get. You are always at the mercy of mother nature. :)

    This photo is from early in my photography journey. I attended one of my first Seattle-based photography meet-ups and after the meet and greets, we split into small groups to find some compositions. I had been playing around with long exposures and light trails and the bright lights from the Great Wheel caught my eye. I spent a good amount of time that evening making new relationships and capturing this image.
