Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry On Top

Sometimes it is just a very simple thing that can trip me up.  I have a new iPhone that takes panoramic photos if you know how to use it.  Feel free to roll your eyes in my general direction, but I had to look for instructions on how to get that feature to work.  I was glad I did though, because it meant that I was able to get this photo of the Port of Dover:

ISO 25 4.15mm f/22 1/3000

ISO 25 4.15mm f/22 1/3000

Pleased as I was with getting this feature to work, I did edit it a bit in Lightroom. Final touches like sharpening and getting the color to pop was the cherry on top for this photo.  It is possible that just this simple thing made me one of the happiest people in Dover this past weekend, it certainly wasn’t anyone who was waiting to take the ferry to France.  If you happen to hear anyone talking about how bad their experience was, know that they probably aren’t exaggerating.  I saw the lines, it was horrible.

How do you like my photo of the port?  For me it was learning to take a panorama on my phone that was a small thing that made my life happier, how about for you? Is there some small photography skill that you learned that made a huge difference?  Feel free to leave a comment below.

Cheers!

  3. I know EXACTLY what you mean Amy. I had the same experience a few months ago and struggled with the pano feature. I finally figured it out and loved the result. It’s amazing what the Iphone can do, isn’t it?! Love the port shot BTW.
