garden wall in japanese garden, portland

    Newer Older

    This is my favorite photo from the Botanical Gardens (Japanese section) in Portland, OR. If only I'd had my Canon 30D at this time! Still, even with less than perfect bokeh and DoF control, I'm super-happy with this photo.

      I can't really tell what I see here besides tree branches and...no idea what the structure is. Very green though!

      Score 6/10 (from the Score Me! group)

      You know, it must just be very evocative for me because I spent so much time walking through that beautiful place and taking it in. I can see why you say what you say. This is still, for me (and perhaps only for me) the most perfect picture from my visit to that garden.

      In other words, I guess you had to be there :-)

      Thanks for the rating.

      Have to agree with Bubba.

      Nice shot, lots of green, but I don't know what the subject matter is, or what point you are trying to get across to the viewer. sorry.

      Wow, tough crowd. This is one of my favorite pix. Keep 'em coming -- maybe I need to recalibrate!

      What is this? I also have no idea what the subject is.

      It is the top of a wall, the rest of which isn't all that interesting. I wish I'd taken more shots of it so I could try another, but I didn't :-\. I shot what was interesting to me (and apparently only me :-)).

      this is a great shot, love the colors and tones, great image....9/10

      I like it, sir. If nothing else the subject is the wall. It takes you straight back, into the garden. Maybe I'm not a professional, but I still have an eye for good photographs and I say this is one of them!!! Are the others in one of your sets?

      A great picture...Some times people don't understand that you can see more with less. It is a very relaxing picture for me to look at.

      Thanks, trudy. This has always been a favorite of mine.
