Grass Planters 1

The Bay Area Photo Club was asked to document a volunteer effort this past Saturday for the Galveston Bay Foundation. Volunteers gathered at Burnett Bay, on the North side of the Houston Ship Channel from the San Jacinto Battleground, to plant cord grass in an effort to reestablish the wetlands that once existed there. These grasses provide many benefits including fighting against erosion and providing breeding habitat for shrimp, crabs, and fish of various varieties.

This is an excellent example of documenting an event such as this.

You captured a small group of people, well focused in the foreground, performing a readily identified action you wanted to document. You included a larger group of people in the background, controlling your depth of field appropriately, showing that this was indeed an organized event. You included a large area that had been planted already and pulled this off nicely.

This is a difficult set of circumstances to work around and you did a fine job here.

Nice shot Larry!

I agree with Doug's comments. However I do think this photo, like any photo with Neal shown in the background, could be improved by cloning Neal out of it! :-)
