This saguaro cactus looked like it had a very deep voice and was singing his favorite tune when I pressed the shutter button. Pic taken at the Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona. The little round green buds at the top of his arm are actually the beautiful Saguaro blooms getting ready to burst open in May. We were there in April and while I really wanted to be there to grab some pics of their blooms I knew that the desert starts to do some serious heating up in May and my camera doesn't like being in a fry pan.

The contrast between the saguaro cactus and the blue sky helps to enhance the sense of the singing cactus. The light, the color and the sense of texturing all work hand in hand to bring a painterly feel to your composition. Once again your selection of bordering adds to the visual completion of the picture.

This looks like a 3-D shot, the arm of the saguaro seems to be reaching out of the monitor!

Is that the same as the Desert Museum in Tucson? We were just there. I love how this picture came out.

Very nice image, the cactus pops in this one against that lovely blue lush sky. Great control over the exposure too.
