1. Sunset: the approach to my selected artwork derived from aesthetic purposes. The beaming prominent sun casted a stunning glow across the beach, prompting me to capture it. 
2. Ship sunset: the beautiful calm waters at the Sunshine Coast were disrupted by a large stark ship. I found this stark disruption beautiful in a way as it quietly rested on the horizon. 
3. Bridge: the seemingly never-ending nature of the bridge connected with my photography on a deep level. I found this scene essential to capture.
