  1. The original desert photo's lines on the road make the image look funny. I would have lessened the intensity of the right yellow line and the white middle lines to make a more complete photo. Also the person is tiny compared to the road and there's no sand/dust in the foreground making the image look more fake. I understand the image has to be as raw as possible for the article but if you put a polished final with the little details people would appreciate that more. Because that's the artistic touch that kind of needs to be taught. What separates a B+ and an A+.
