Choose the best landscape photograph on this link and write a Mel-con style argument about it in a Google Doc.
To begin with, name three photographic ideas or techniques that the photographer used to make it a great landscape photograph. Be sure to include supporting details.

Yes these are beautiful settings, but remember the photographer did not make them. What did the photographer do to get the best photograph? In other words, be sure to use your target goals and the vocabulary and concepts to make your argument.
Paste the photograph into a Google doc and turn it in with your full name and year in school in the header.
