Our teacher challenged us to find a way to illistrate the concept- "Champion"

Using A Simple Approach To Photography, I Grouped the elements I wanted to photograph in elements of three: Hat, Flag and Cowboy. I found that an odd number of elements are more desirable to the eye of the viewer.

During the recent Olympics, we were inspired to set goals that would take us to greater heights.

This picture is to help the viewer to reach new heights of success using a concrete image everyone can relate to: the heart of a champion.
