I feel the 3 photos above are my best photos. The first photo was taken on macro mode, I was actually able to get my lens about 1 inch away from the subject to capture the detail in the petals, I also used manual focus to focus it just the way I wanted it. I feel photo 1 is a strong photo because it has strong contrast and great detail. For photo 2 I also used macro mode, the reason I used macro mode was so that I could capture the rough texture of the chains and the lock, which is why I think this is such a strong photo, also by looking at the chain you can almost feel the rough texture. Finally for photo 3 I used Aperture priority mode with a F-stop of 5.6 and an ISO of 200. I chose this photo because of the strong contrast on the handle.
