Shut UP this is a cell phone image?!!? It's gorgeous!! Mine is a 2mp, but nothing like this has ever come out of it. I would love a print of this!!

edit, 'cause i'm an idiot... guess this wouldn't make for a great print, with 1.2mp. :)

I think this is highly underrated. It should be up there with the best of them. Highly abstract and urban. And to think this is from a phone cam too!

I think what makes this shot the most interesting is the juxtaposition between the light elements and the dark ones and the splashes of color. This was also an excellent example of when grain "works' in a picture.

For me, personally, this shot isn't real "moving." I tend to think that they appear flat and lack a distinctive purpose or subject. THAT said, the more I look at this, it starts to be more appealing. The colors really stand out, and it whispers, ever so quietly, "I have a story, but you have to listen carefully to hear it."

This reminds me of a surrealist painting...graffiti and forest scenery combine- quite an interesting idea!

Nice abstraction! I like the tension of the tow main elements in this image, the graffitied metal wall and the scraggly weeds. The grain helps lend a painterly quality--almost pointilism. There's a lot to interest the eye here.

Plenty going on here, a good use of grain to add atmosphere and make an arty picture-good

This is one of my favorites! I love the graphic appeal and the whole composition's color and feel. Very original, too.
