Hello bandgeek711!

For my hypothesis, I used the first option, but changed the words a little. I think the second hypothesis is not as good because it doesn't have "If I do this." The "If I do this" is referring to the Project Question, which is what the Hypothesis is answering, and it makes it more clear for people to read. Here is my hypothesis for the Digital Photos and Dynamic Range project: "When I decrease the shutter speed, the average pixel gray level will decrease as well". So basically, use this format: When I [do this], [this will happen]
Hope I helped!
