At a great gift shop in Doylestown, PA. I shot this with my then new iPhone 4s.

The camera was fantastic, especially considering it’s size, plus it was in a PHONE.

My new iPhone 7 Plus is five generations later and even better!

I have included an enlarged section of the image so you can see the detail this camera produces. This sample section was not manipulated in any way. Isn’t that incredible?

This extreme closeup was at 1/20th of a second exposure. Thank goodness I have a very steady hand with a camera. It’s easy to get a blurred photo at that shutter speed. I did manipulate the image by adding a “bloom” to the highlights, one of my favorite “adjustments.”

Comments or questions here.

    Awesome, David. Can’t believe that’s from a phone.

    You and I can really appreciate how far photography has come since we were kids! I’m always happy to have a great camera, in my cell phone, with me all the time. Today’s kids don’t have a clue how good they have it. My hand is maybe average in steadiness – that is to say – not nearly as good as you are! Great shot!! Always enjoy your work. BTW, Happy Birthday (coming soon)
