2) I like that the sky and grass are dark. Then it fades in the background a bit.
3) I would change the angle i took the picture at because I wanted to have the tree be the main focus i guess, but its pretty much off to the side.
4) I ran the black magic action and gradient 1-5.
5) I used my Ipod probably not the best thing to use, but it worked.
6) haven't done Ice Ice Baby yet, almost done.
