This was just a random shot in the same Botanic Garden, where Botanic Attack series took place. I think this looks pretty decent, even thou' again, it's the same cellphone camera ^^.

edit: Somehow the old upload was 1/2 the size of original photo. Don't know why. But now I retouched this up a bit and got this in it's 100% size. So now more print sizes are available :) .

This is an amazing piece. The perspective is just amazing, I have no freaking idea how the artist managed to be in the middle of the river, but whatever they did it puts the picture in the perfect focus. The sky behind all those bare trees has such an impact, it would have been such a different picture any other way, and how it all fades at the horizon line, it couldn't be better. The color of the grass and the clouds in the water is almost haunting, I doubt I could find a bad thing about this picture if I tried.
What do you think?

It's hard to believe this was done with a cellphone camera! The perspective is great, (this is one of the most prominent compliments, after looking at the comments :) ) This actually looks like a painting, that would be sitting on the wall of my living room. One of the smaller details that I like, is that towards the horizon line, the reflection of the clouds is very pretty, and I like that the river seems to twist and turn like an old dirt road. This looks like a wonderful and warm place to sit by the side of the lake and have a picnic or dip your toes in the water. It looks like a great place to visit, and the modest grainy picture really drives that home.

this is another shot where you said it was  a cell phone or not so good camera .. i just have to say i don't think it matters your Eye shows no matter what machine you are useing .. my first thought when i read your words was OMG >. if he had a " decent camera " no one would look at any other photography becuase his are just that good .. it is like when they horse race they weighted down Man o war .. so that other horses could just have somewhat decent chance. .. your work is gorgious and inspiring !!! .. i had a few of your stuff in my favorites before .. but hadn't seen some of the new ones .. so excited to see them 8)
