Dang! Spent more time trying to get this file size down to 150kb than on anything else! Cropped in more than I wanted, despeckled, even a slight touch of gaussian blur in an attempt to get under the limit. Bah!

Shot this with my Sony A700 with 10-20 wide angle with external flash & remote.

This doesn't come across as 'from the ground up' form me. It's more like 'from the ground across'.

maybe if you had been looking down into a bush or something this would apply more(for me at least). it just doesnt feel very from the ground up-ish
