the camera does not lie

however i suspect it does have a wicked sense of humor. both images are from my galaxy 7 cell phone. first is just point and shoot. second is clicking on part of the image – the flower – and then shooting. no doubt there is a simple explanation. one that simply will be left to another night when when i have more time and greater curiosity, or did those giggling garden sprites get into my camera !

    The camera set the focus and exposure in the first one and it was over exposed, but when you clicked on the flower on your scene the camera set exposure there so you got really great color and exposure is my best guess.

    It’s a lovely Lily! All mine are done for the season.

      I tend to agree. Though I need to look into the camera instructions if there are any. And then do a comparison of the image to real time viewing under similar light. Depending on the camera software all kinds of things go on when the image is captured. The general explanation is that cameras are tuned to capture the color of facial compositions. My daylilies are mostly done for the season too. The flower from last night was from earlier this summer. There are about 15 plants still blooming sporadically. The rest are done.

      I need to start editing or reviewing images right away with this cell phone camera. Or get the real camera fixed. The white thing is the label for the cross. I made the mistake of trusting the camera to get a semi decent image. Turns out both of them are less than decent. It seems this learning curve thing might be a life long experience. If I used photoshop or similar I might be tempted to heal that picture. The train has been gone from the station way way too long for any other remedy. Believe it or not I was able to read the label and confirm the cross.
