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.

I love this, and don't knock cellphone cameras--that's all I have! anyway, this makes me feel cold and melancholy, in a shivery satisfactory way
