    Here's a snapshot I took with my Kodak Easyshare, just thought I'd share it for the heck of it.

    very interesting shot... :thumbup: i'd go for the full symmetry and crop a tad off the right side... but that's just me and everybody has an opinion. ;)

    Great concept.
    I would have liked to see the background in sharper focus, but other than that it is a great pic!

    I don't think that camera could really handle doing it any differently :) However, I did get my film processed, and here's what I got:

    The colours aren't quite as vivid, but it's not the greatest scan.. Also, I digitally altered the original one, pumped up the saturation. It was actually a rather cloudy day when I took the digital one, was very gray and dull.

    Thanks for the opinions so far guys :)

    If you'd like to see a few more, this gallery is mostly my vacation photos, aside from the last 3. http://s60.photobucket.com/albums/h30/tolyk/general/

    Those two are different pictures. One was taken with my kodak digital camera, the other with my canon 35 mm SLR.. It had nothing to do with photoshop.. my skills in photoshop are actually rather poor, unfortunately.. Thanks though :)

    You actually DID achieve a better result with the better camera.
    And well, while I like to promote the idea that it is not the camera that takes the photos but the photographer behind it, this shows that some simpler cameras ARE limited in what they can do, no matter how good the photographer's concept might be, but I still would not want to discourage any users of simpler cameras to continue pursuing their hobby ... yes, you get better focus, sharper pictures, more realistic colours (maybe) with a good SLR or DSLR, true. It shows.....

    Well, to be fair it wasn't completely the camera. It was a different day, sun was shining instead of hiding behind the clouds. I surveyed the scene and tried to figure out when the best time to go would be.. I don't think I accomplished that part, but at least there was sunlight :D

    But yes, I do agree about some cameras being limited, but you can still enjoy using them, and gain experience by doing so. I don't think you'll discourage anyone from using a lower-end camera :)

    Clever idea. Made for a very interesting composition.

    Well, I'm back in Halifax and retook that shot, with a digital SLR this time. I think I need to use a wider angle lens though.

    Fantasy garden redux: Manual mode, f/18, 2 second shutter. C-polarizar, ND*2 and ND*4. ISO-100
