  3. That's hard! I love #9, #13, and #15, but I think my favorite is #11. I noticed that one on your website a while ago. It is just so "BOY" and I love the casual stance he has on that wheel.

  45. definitely #3. The curve of the railroad tracks helps your eyes flow over the picture. the straight lines of the telephone poles add to the composition. i like her placement within the frame. and she looks like you put her at ease as a photographer and that's important.
