Summer Storm and Silos

Summer Storm And Silos, originally uploaded by Thomas Gehrke.

The camera on the new iPhone 4 is proving to be good at motivating me to take more pictures. There are both upsides and downsides that I am beginning to notice as I work with the images it produces. On the upside, color noise seems fairly minimal. On the downside, I believe that it applies some sharpening to the image which results in edge haloing.

I'll follow up with a more complete analysis at some point.

At any rate, this was taken on my latest trip to visit my parents. Another scene from Lancaster, PA.

Adjustments handled by Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5, Topaz Labs' Detail 2, DeNoise 5 and Adjust 4 filters.

(Topaz Lab's tools are impressing me. Yet another article in the queue.)
