When you look in a different way, you see other things. Capturing that, i think, is the essence of the art in photography.
I have been an enthusiast amateur iPhone photographer but also ran into its limitations. Now i use a Sony SLT-A58 with two lenses. 18-55mm and 55-200mm. I enhance only in iPhoto and use no Photoshop.
I appreciate to hear what you think of my photos. Criticism is very welcome for learning to get better! Thank you for making the effort.
