Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

The sun is hitting the ball in a cool way. On one side of the ball, the sun is shining strongly and on the other side, the ball looks darker or in the shade. This represents the darkness and the light in the world. When it is day on one side of the world, it's night on the other side. The ball looks tiled like the world. The grass looks very shiny and pretty. I like this picture because I like basketball. This picture is cool because you usually see a basketball on a court, not on the grass.

I think you chose a very good picture. This picture looks very interesting. I like what you said, that half of the ball had sunlight and the other half looked darker. Good picture.

I like your picture because the ball has it's shadow next to it. Good Job.
