Re: Down on the Farm

In the second one she looks so like you!

There is something rather odd in the first one. It looks a bit like a paste job of several parts - Salina and the horse, the farm buildings, the middle-distance trees and the background. Presumably it is something to do with the way the phone camera processes the image. That or you are spoofing us and you did it all at home

Re: Down on the Farm

All the different parts of the picture appear to be in focus, the blue coloured items have a different cast to the rest of the image. The colour of the horse is unusual - very blue.

In the first picture the light on the person is coming from the left but the shadow of the horse indicates the light is coming from the right.
However Pando could be using a big reflector held on the left.

However they show the pleasant countryside.

Re: Down on the Farm

In the first the light is from the right, consistent with horse and barn shadows. The horse is black but reflecting blue sky light, colours here are vivid, intense.

You don't think a Galaxy camera phone would tell porkies do you?...

Re: Down on the Farm

I've seen that separation effect before. I think it must be something to do with fairly aggressive sharpening but without tell-tale haloes on the edges.

Whatever, it looks a lovely setting. And the vines that Salina is tending look like they might fill some rather nice bottles

It looks to me as if Salina and the horse have been Photoshoped onto the landscape background.

Re: Down on the Farm

Something funny going on with Salina's left kneecap and right shin. Her outline is also too harsh. Is she a vampire? I can't see a shadow.

Re: Down on the Farm

John - The GalaxyS6 does produce murderously sharp images in spite of its many flaws as a smartphone. Used as a camera it must be remembered that it has a digital zoom which is at its best at its wide angle default (the equivalent of about 14mm on a 4/3 SWD lens). It appears to have a very good 16 megapixel sensor and processor that renders extremely bright, crisp, natural colour images that require no sharpening, and with no perceptible dof from about 2 metres to infinity, so long as you don't try to zoom.

Derek - "Depends on who is driving it - "
I have an impeccable driving history!

Nigel - "It looks to me as if Salina and the horse have been Photoshopped onto the landscape background."
You could be forgiven for that perception

OM - "I can't see a shadow." -
"Something funny going on with Salina's left kneecap and right shin. Her outline is also too harsh. Is she a vampire?"

Her shadow fell parallel to the frame and is out of the picture.
I will have you know that Salina's physiology is as flawless as her sire's and her legs suffer no such deformity!

Edit: It appears that some varmint has chopped her off at the knees, by gad!
