2. This image I enjoy, and maybe it's because of the subject matter as I am an avid boxing fan myself, but I feel it portrays Muhammad Ali quite well in his facial expressions. he was known as being a very confident boxer and is known world wide for his personality, I feel this photo shows him off as well as any photo could. The photo from a technical stand point is also very good. It's sharp, lit well, and composed nicely. I also like that the eyes are lit up perfectly, and how they are framed in between his hat and glasses.

3. This image is of a coal miner in West Virginia in 1969. It's a very strong image in my opinion, the contrast between him and the background/surroundings really helps bring attention to the main subjects. The tracks act as leading lines. The facial expression and body positioning are also important to the image as they portray a certain mood.
