As far as theiPhone goes its good (as you see) in good daylight but at the light dims there is trouble holding it without bluring. There are no camera settings - point n shoot. Fine for family snaps at the local Stately home, ll the ones on my galery that youve already seen were taken on the same day. As with most digitals there is a lag between pushing the button and the pic being taken so you need to anticipate the action - think tom cruise starred in that one but if anyone can develop the technology I reckon apple will!!

@Edith: Superb. Please don't stop posting your macro shots - they are a pleasure to look at.

@Decree: is there a story behind that tree?

@Steve W: interesting shot, although I'm not too keen on the composition.

I have been wondering about that, too; there must be.

If there is, I don't know it. Didn't think to ask the local old person sitting on the bench.

I saw them approaching from my balcony and just had time to grab my camera and snap this one shot before they disappeared. I really like how the composition came out. To me it seems balanced but with various lines of movement present.

I'm doing some work on Chile at the moment and found one of my old photos that I liked.

Great pic, and a daring one I might add! Weren't you worried they might impound your camera?
I bet they copied those caps from the German Wehrmacht in the 1930s.

There are loads of German influences in Chile, the received a lot of German migration.
To be honest I didn't think about them taking my camera... I'm from London and palace guards their don't acknowledge your existence.

We don't have a Hilton (at least branded, they do own a large hotel here), we have to make do with a Marriott and a Sheraton.
