Point and shoot is fine for personal photography. But it takes a lot more than just a press of a button to create really powerful images, those that tell a story and invoke emotions in us.

This beautiful "Morning Mood" photo was taken by Tatiana Mikhina and even inspired a few imitations, like this one by Char-la-la on Flickr. How cool is this composition? Those flowers look like they could be actual skirts.
