I like these, especially the first. However, I think a couple look over-processed and it detracts from the photos character.

theyre all taken with my iphone. the camera app that came with the phone didnt catch colors very well, so i downloaded a bunch of different applications. i have a few with double exposures in a pinhole camera, some that have a rainbow glare from the sun, some have different film that is over-exposed and some have flash options that make the colors pop like expired 70's polaroids.

i really like the colors & "over processed" look! i think it makes emotions and thoughts scream out from the photo! in a few photography lessons that i have taken (black & white) i really latched onto the high contrast filters...

i think the "over processed"-ness from the pictures allow them to speak for themselves, instead of me having to speak for them.

but thank you for your criticism, ill take that into consideration in my future photos Smiley

Ooh, I LOVE that sky shot from July 11th. <3

I don't think any of them look over-processed saved for that fern one from June 28th... looks like a photo taken in the 60s. Although I daresay that's the point so job well done! lol Cheesy

You play with light and shadows VERY well.

Specifically with your photos above, I think the iris's and trees would have stood out more as high contrast black and white(like the book) or the ever popular HDR filter. But I still believe that a great photo doesn't need special effects, despite the fact that you really love it. I know I probably sound like a snoot who just wants to complain, but I think that as you progress through the 365 challenge and look back to the earlier photos, you'll see what I mean.

I've only ever used film or DSLR to shoot with so I'm not too familiar with iphone applications. But regardless of the machine, you do tend to have an eye for focusing on specific details as evidenced by your blog. I heartily agree that photos should tell their own stories and need no explanation. For this very reason I throw out about half of my work because it doesn't "talk" to me.

I enjoyed seeing your work. You've certainly got an eye for capturing interesting subject matter. Your photography does speak for itself.

I was searching for a photography board here on craftster and came across your post---I am starting a project 365, but I want to start it on January 1st---I love your photos, and was about to ask if you were using a pinhole camera when I read that you are using your iPhone!  I love playing with the photography apps on my iPhone---any suggestions on which are your favorites?  I especially like your vintage-looking photos (june 12th, july 14th, etc).
