To say a photo isn't good enough simply because it's taken with a mobile phone just isn't true from my point of view. I took this with my Samsung Galaxy SII on the Danish island "Bornholm" when I was there on holiday. I walked past it and thought to myself "That would make for a really nice photograph" and I really think it looks great. I ran it through instagram and gave it a filter - again something most photographers loathe but I personally think there's a lot of snobbery on this matter. For me, a great photo is something that works on a compositional level, something that is pleasing to the eye and portrays exactly what the photographer wanted to create. If anyone has another opinion, please feel free to express it - I greatly appreciate criticism.
