Yesterday was a rare, cloudy day in Phoenix, as the image above of the Westward Ho in downtown Phoenix attests.
What makes this image notable, at least for me, is that I took it on my iPhone on the way to buy some caffeine and literally did the post-processing while standing in line. The image above is what came out of the iPhone.
To wit, took the image with Pro HDR on auto mode, then used the magic “Clarity” button in Camera+, then emailed it to myself. (And posted it to Facebook.)
Boom. It’s the future.
