california winter : romantic interlude

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 18 February 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

The flowering plum trees behind our house insist on blooming around Valentines' Day. Today I took my dog for a walk with my iPhone 4 in my pocket. I am having such a wonderful time experimenting with this camera.....
AM3's Barbara Kile calls it, "iPhoneography." I'm hooked.

My iPhone shots are developed with PhotoShop and Nik Efex Pro.

Apple iPhone 4 1/100 second F/2.8 ISO 100 4 mm

Early in my day here to find a Favorite Photo but here it is ! I would like to have seen that frame/mount in white, though, so the image is more set free. But this is soooo beautiful, truly Five***** lovely.

@Ronnie 2¢: I took your suggestion and have applied a white border. Do you think it works? Thanks for your generous comment, Ronnie !
