Nice photo Jannine . This is a great thread . I feel transported around the globe .
I am changing my phone soon . My husband and kids phones take better photos than mine .

OMG...where does one begin?! I was going to say earlier zx, that certainly those were not taken w/a cell phone camera. If I had to pick a fav (& there is more than one) but ya gotta choose, I'm going to go with the b/w of the boutique Paisleys. Don't ask me why other than the building structure, geometric lines of steps, railing, planters really stands out against the building into the night.
Yep, there's nothing quite like relationship issues to force one to go inside oneself for reflection, comfort, discovery. Health problems can be hard on marriages, though the love is there, so is the stress on both patient & caregiver along with the normal daily demands. It's a marathon, not a race to be sure. No preparing for that one though.
Thanks for sharing on this thread. Everybody else too. I'm enjoying the pics & dialogue (even tho I SHOULD be outside).
OK Stu...blew us outta the water w/marine life. Where's that garden I heard about?
Why no signature zx? You've been here awhile. I looked you up to refresh my memory as I kinda knew who you were, (zx10guy) but then again, kinda maybe not. Then I noticed, Oh Ya, you had posted on my BFF's appendix cancer thread. I shared your story w/her from there.
Jannine wrote:zx10guy, I'm really curious what type of phone you have now! Those are great low-light photos from a cell phone camera.
Here's one I took on 4th of July 2014, of Orpheus (with his lyre and strategically placed fig leaf) on the grounds of Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland.
It's a Samsung S8. I also have a Samsung S9 for my work phone. I've taken some pictures with the S9. Being it's my work phone, I tend not to take many personal pictures with it for obvious reasons. Based on what I can tell between the phones, there's really no difference in performance. The S9 is supposed to have better low light performance than the S8. I just haven't seen anything dramatic with my usage.
It's nice you were able to capture all the shadow detail of the statue with the sun directly behind it. Lots of times with shots like this, I struggle to capture any detail in shadowed areas because the sun washes out everything.
Jannine wrote:Very cool. I'll have to look at phone camera quality the next time I replace my phone. The Orpheus photo was taken with my old Nikon D90. I later moved to a Fuji mirrorless X-T10 camera, because it's more compact and lighter weight, and it also seems to take slightly better low-light photos. I wanted a camera that wouldn't weigh a ton for taking along for travel, without sacrificing a lot of baggage space. I haven't used it more than a couple times a year lately, though; I've started getting back into my old hobbies of weaving and sewing. I might be best off going back to a point and shoot, really, but the geek in me doesn't want to. Your photos make me think I should really consider more compact options though! I love the look of b&w photography.
