the fountain is all lit up

the fountain is all lit up

This iPhone shot turned out rather nicely. Walking past the fountain next to the Christian Science Center reflecting pool in October, I was struck by how the late afternoon sun illuminated the fountain and cast long shadows. The shade and shadows from the surrounding trees yielded vignetting without post-processing (although I bumped the vignetting up a bit afterward). I didn’t really expect my iPhone to do justice to the magically lit scene and headed off the subway after snapping this and forgot to check it out until a few weeks later.  When I finally remembered the photo,  I was stunned by how well it came out.  As they say, the best camera is the one you have with you. And in most cases, that’s my iPhone.
