1. I took pictures and made 3 edits to each.
2. I incorporated contrast and color by changing the levels of each to make the overall exposure better.  
3. I learned about histograms, and their use in photography. You want you color spread out all over the histogram for the best exposure. 
4. I am least proud of the second photo. It could have been straighter. 
5. I am most proud of the rest of the photos. I think they really turned out nicely. I take pride in my photography. Its a fun hobby!!
