Here I come, bearing pictures of nature!

Taken with a ten-year-old Olympus Camedia C-4000 I found in a junk store and was lucky to found it still worked!


Here are more pictures of the purple flowers (The name of which I still don't know ):

Even more pretty flowers I can't name This one with an ant that snuck into the picture :3

I tried to get the cow behind the tree in this, but it turned out to only be a blur you really have to look at to see:

Some very cloud-like mushrooms I found:

Yay, photography! Here are my short impressions of your photos:

I quite liked this photo and not just because they are flowers, but because I feel as though I am the height of the flower. In addition, having a different coloured flower, albeit blurred, changed this from being a somewhat cliche picture into something that piques my interest.

More pretty flowers I can't name:
This photo didn't appear

Even more pretty flowers I can't name This one with an ant that snuck into the picture :3
I don't know if it's that there are hundreds of these flowers near my house, or that I loved your previous picture so much I didn't enjoy this one. The one interesting element, I think, is the ant on the petal. However, it's out of focus. Not my favorite of yours.

A few flowers/weeds with a sunset in the background:
This one is interesting. However, the somewhat cloudy sunset that is neither sunny nor thundery lacks interest. I think these flowers are thistles? Could totally be wrong, but the flowers themselves with their somewhat tossed about buds are pretty.

Here's a change of pace, a cat named Jeoffrey.
Honestly, there are too many pictures of cat circulating in my opinion. The foreground is overexposed and the focus is a bit off.


A bit of bamboo in my Gramma's backyard:
LOVE LOVE LOVE this one! I think your best photography is when you take your subject from below. The grey sky, the shiny bamboo disappearing into a leafy cloud. Love.

Somewhat creepy cherub in the garden:
This photo reminds me of the mythological Atlas. I would love to see this one in black and white.

More pretty flowers I can't name:
This one wouldn't load for me.

You know what I'll say about this one xP:
Again, I find this one beautiful. The colours and reasons why I like it are similar to your first picture. However, try not overexposing either your foreground or background. It works in rare occasions, but just takes away here.

Pretty purple spiky flower with a pond in the back:
I like this. I imagine myself walking through a Dr. Seuss wonderland.

I tried to get the cow behind the tree in this, but it turned out to only be a blur you really have to look at to see:
Not your best photo. I understand what you were trying to do, but I don't think it worked for you.

Some very cloud-like mushrooms I found:
This is my favorite picture you've taken. It could be a little shaper, but the textures and clean lines but the more abstract clouds behind make it fabulous. Mind if I put it as my desktop screensaver? I adore peeling paint.

A tree from an ant's point of view :
I like you'r foreground, but do not like the trees in the background. I think focusing on the moss, with the tress at the very top of your frame to provide depth would be a more enticing picture.

Cone flowers! (I knew this one!):
These cone flowers look like they have personalities. However, the pink and green is overwhelming. This is another one that I'd prefer in black and white.

Some form of greenery at my grandmother's after a storm:
I believe these are rose stems and petals. I don't feel particularly drawn to this one.

A sunset:
I didn't like this at first. I looked again and I did. It isn't a very striking photograph, but the serenity of the lake makes this picture a calming one.
You have talent and you are obviously spending time taking these photos. As you mature as a photographer, finding the details that make your fabulous photos what they are and separating them from photos that are lovely, but not extraordinary will come more easily. I can't wait to see more of your work!
