Just Trying To Get Past the Surface

I've been taking a photography class from Brooke Snow, perhaps you've heard of her? Well any way this weeks assignment was composition. I thought, okay this should be relatively easy. I know the 1/3rd's, leading lines and such. I found out that this photography concept is harder that in sounds. First off I can't cut off limbs of people, can't have things sticking out of heads or behind ears. I have to de-clutter my photo area. Gosh, when you're photographing in a tight spot this is really hard.
So here is a sample of this weeks assignment, what do you followers thing?
 This little guy was a real hoot at the Smithfield horse show riding around the arrena on his little paint pony.
Bees are out in full force as all my trees are now in full bloom.
My version of leading lines and 1/3rd's as I look over the Snake River Valley.
It's hard being four and having all the attention now on someone else in the family.
My version of Swan Lake.

These are all wonderful. The little cowboy is fabulous. A great composition. I really like the job that you did with the white building and the light sky. You are doing a great job with your class.

These are all great. It looks as if the class is working for you. I just love the baby shot. It truly does look as if life is all changing. I also love all the pollen on the bees legs.

I absolutely ADORE the portrait of the four-year-old who is vying for attention now that the baby has arrived. That is brilliantly conceived and executed.

Gorgeous work. I'm particularly fond of the newe sibling shot. Great composition that shows you have a true eye for the heart of the shot.

You have such a great eye, I love your view of the Snake especially, along of course with the amazing portraits.

Your people photos are a heart-warming piece of life. The symmetry in the last photo is spot on as well as the balance in the swan image. Your practice is paying off!

Inspiring once again - wild applause for your creative composition on the shot of the 4 year old vying for attention - super use of depth of field there. That bee shot is wonderful too.
