I live in a very rural area of California. The gold miners came here in droves during the 1800’s... so there is a lot of history here... and a lot of abandoned old buildings, which often prove fantastic for photography subjects.

I normally carry at least one of my cameras with me at all times. In the rare case that I don’t, I rely on my iPhone 6s Plus, which has a rear camera at 12 MP.

The shot below was taken with my iPhone. This old building sits on the edge of the Mokelumne River near Electra Road in Jackson, CA. It was misty out, and this abandoned building looked so beautiful nestled in the hillside.

Great Capture. That would make a superb photo gallery and studio.

It proves a Iphone casmera in the right hands can produce a superb image

And this is no post processing?
Regardless it is very nice shot.

PP is a must. Otherwise just a snapshot. PP is where an artist gets to infuse his or her artistic vision into the photo. I treat my photography the same way I treat my paintings. Artistic license is meant to be used. Harnessing it to properly convey one’s feelings is as much a part of the artistic process as actually taking the photo, in my opinion.

Thank you. I understand all that. I was just trying to clarify what, if anything, had been done to the photo.

We're given the option to attach thumbs and smileys and such, but I want to attach stars. Big, bold, golden stars. Five of them. Not just for the image --which richly deserves them--, but likewise for what you wrote and your apparent approach. And it doesn't matter to me in the slightest whether you shot this with an iPhone or a view camera. The final image is what matters.

Thank you for this one.

I just bought an Iphone 7 which has a 12megapixel camera as well. Now I am very intrigued to begin to use it for photos like you took. Do you use the simple camera app that comes with your camera, or do anything other special?
Thanks

Hi there, no, I do not use any iPhone apps to edit my iPhone photos, though there are many of them on the App Store. Your iPhone 7 will have some pretty good standard editing options— in a pinch I may use to crop or level up my horizons. But then I use Airdrop to quickly get the photo onto my computer and into Lightroom. LR is my “go-to” for most of my editing. I do also use photoshop, though only for pulling texture layers on top of my photos and using the blending modes. I also use my many plug-ins that I have installed on Photoshop... Topaz, ASE, VSCO, etc.,—much, much more than I use PS itself.

I like to have access to the more robust editing features on these programs than just relying on my iPhone apps, though, as I mentioned, there are many fine photo editing apps available.
