Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

The reason why I took this picture is because these flowers are so beautiful. Just a few times I have seen white flowers. The white color really makes the picture more interesting because everything else is green. If you notice, there is a little dot that is yellow. Also it is cool because the sun gives light to the picture that makes it brighter. If you pay close attention to where the big flower is, you can see that there is a shadow. It looks like a shadow of a person. This picture makes me happy because it is so pretty, and I like it. The wind is strong, so that is why the flower is kind of tilted. Also, there are some old leaves around the flower.
