Student photographer's analysis of the photo:
I think this picture is very interesting. It makes me feel happy. The school looks like a church, and it makes me feel peaceful and harmonious. The sun makes me feel energetic. This picture means a lot to me because the sun is special, and the red line in the middle is also really interesting. You can see the sun in the middle of the picture. A part of a tree is also showing, like only a few branches. And next to the sun is the top of the school.
Melitza, 7th Grade, Junior Academy, Raul Yzaguirre School For Success [RYSS], Houston, Texas.
