Photographer: Fatih Oger, Seattle

Photo taken: April 10, Seattle waterfront

Photographer’s description: “Great Wheel and seagulls created the composition. Canon 5D Mark IV, with Canon 28-70 2.8 lens.”

Katie’s critique: “I love the simplicity and cleanness of this photo. The symmetry of the Great Wheel is great and the scattering of birds makes your eye move around the frame and adds an interesting element. Having the sun just out of the frame creates a gradient in the sky, another technical element that makes this shot different from other straight-on shots of the Great Wheel. Great photo!”
