I would say in order to take good pictures you have to see the bigger picture. I don't think it should focus on one thing. If there are several elements that fit perfectly together then they should be captured photographically. When it comes to the use of light, in any outdoor situation in the daylight, don't use the flash on your camera. It would make the object of the picture appear much darker than they really are. You can also use natural elements to frame the focus of your picture. And last but not least, try your best not to cut out major objects in your photo.
There were ways where I could've improved my photos. The center photo could've been improved by focusing in on the shuttle bus (a photo captured by chance because it was moving) a little bit more. I wanted everything surrounding the shuttle to be blurred. Secondly, I wish I had a steadier hand to take more motion shots which appear motionless. I didn't want it to all be a blur of light. Lastly, I wish I had a better camera. I know my camera is pretty nice, but it could be better (maybe I should add that to my Christmas list.)
