The pic was crap. I spent 45 mins on this section, which affected the sophistication of my creative. Atleast I could understand all the texts!

with the picture, i referred to the open paddock with a house (farm like) and said how some people choose self solitude, and find a sense of belonging with family and animals on a farm. How does that sound lolz?

ye that's ok, i was like contrast between natural and man-made elements show diversity of experiences/multitude of perceptions or whatever, it only said choose 1 thing so pretty much anything would be ok

idk how you get 2 marks tho, if 1 element + 1 explanation was enough. i bs'd some 2nd sentence which was just another way of saying the 1st one lol

Uh-oh, was I too simplistic with the picture? I HATED that stimulus haha! I said that the different images of places reinforce the perception of how important belonging to a place is or something? Think I was to general -_- Despite my hate for the first text, the others were all actually really good, some awesome quotes in them :)

It wasn't to bad but I had more difficulty finding techniques then I did in my practise papers. What texts did everyone choose for e? I did the image and text 3.

I thought the picture was sweet haha, I just talked about how the different words on different colours suggests how different aspects of one's life enrich their sense of belonging in different ways.

Long winded but some of the best bs ive ever done :D

i said for the picture that the combination of warm and cold colours created belonging through how, although they're all different individually, the colours complement eachother, accentuated by the connections to belonging that are mentioned like "place" and "identity"

That image was so stupid. Did anyone notice there wasn't any copyright information? That was because the picture's sole purpose was to be used in the HSC which really emphasises its stupidity :/

a) - talked about the colours and how they reinforce the postitive aspects associated with belonging to place/people
b) - used direct speech, emotive lang and talked about the need to belong to a place in order to accentuate a sense of affliation
c) - talked about the true value of belonging, and how being somewhere doesnt mean you necesarily belong
d) - talked about the negative aspects of belonging, how the persona feels alienated as a result of tranisitoning from one place to another
