  5. Nature plays in these images by being part of the image and help create an image. A circular shape place a part of most of the images whether its the hair from one of the girls in the photo or fabric from the dress they are wearing.The photos make me feel enticed and curious. It also have a sense of mystery to the photos. I’d have to say the first image is my favorite one because it makes me think and wonder how the photographer created this image.

  8. I believe that nature is the main thing in those photos you see nature most of the photos and I also think that nature plays a big role in these photos. The shape in these photos are almost blending in these photos that you almost don’t notice them because the shapes make the photos more interesting. Well to me I mainly see circles in the photo. These photos make me feel happy and amazed with the effects because the photographer make the effects look real in the photo. My favorite photo is the girl with the red dress standing inside of the circle.

  9. The one thing I mainly noticed is that trees are used in practically every photo. The way that the subjects pose and contort also make them seem like trees. The shapes I mainly see in these photos are circular figures and wavy shapes. These photos make me feel a little unnerved, but calm and complete, with the way the shapes go with the trees and backgrounds. My favorite is the 3rd, with the woman in the red dress. This image gives me the feeling of desolation and abandonment, it’s a very powerful image.

  13. Nature is obviously abundant in all these photos, though it is not the focal point most of the time, it is still in the subcontext. The one exception is the girl laying on her long red hair, you obviously see no “nature” it still has a wild feeling to it which makes the shot fit well with the rest of the captures. Shape is most evident with the leafless tress and the veils. The whispiness of the veil interacts with the slender branches and creates shape in the veil, for example the very first photo slightly resembles a head and face to me. These photos make me feel a tad melancholy because of the lack of color and overall dark overcast vibes from the shots. My favorite shot is the woman floating in the mess of texture. it kind of freaks me out but i think that’s why it’s my favorite because it makes me feel the most.. i also like the elegant post of the young woman and the texture in the water.

  16. The nature plays a role by allowing the persons body like: (hair, clothes, head, and limbs) to attract to it. The peoples bodies are creating the shapes or main focus of the picture. Its mostly lines coming of the person to create a more realistic circle. these photos make me feel a little lonely. The one i like the most is the one with the head wrapped around the tree because it allows the viewer to see what the major intent is in the photo.

  21. Nature is the background of these photos but I think it also influences the tone of the photos immensely. There are a lot of circles and triangles in these photos. The hands and arms of the people in the images are always curved. These photos are kind of sad and mysterious as well as ominous and lonely. My favorite photo is the one of the girl sitting in the pond with the green dress. I like this one because of the reflections it captures and the angle it was shot at.

    Nature plays in this photo by the dresses being attached to the trees or river etc to make it look like the person is being contained or trapped in nature.

    How does shape fit into these photos?
    The shape fits very well with the background since mostly all of them match the subject.

    What shapes do you see in here? How do these photos make you feel? Which one is your favorite and why?
    There are a lot of circle shapes in these images. The subject’s hair are creating circles, as well as some of the trees in the background and the dresses that they have also creates circles. My favorite is the one with the woman trapped in the circle of ice. The background makes it looks like she’s in a horror movie about to get sacrificed to a river monster.

  26. I think that nature plays into these photos in the way that the dancer is restrained by a shield connected to nature. This relates to something that stays constant and is natural. The shape is usually circular or ovalish, relating to the natural constant feel, how a circle has no end. These photos make me think that the dancer is restrained and unable to move freely, which could tie into the main idea of the image. My favorite picture is the dancer in the green dress, squatting in a pond. I like it because of the background reflection of the trees, and the overall effect the image gives.
