Works great! iPhoneography rocks!

@Richard: I agree, The camera on the iPhone 4 is absolutely brillo! The ones before were a bit iffy, but the 4 is a really good little camera!(Pity that as a phone, it's not so hot!)

nice shot. don't get the title though.

@Philip: It's a Plastic bird and nest being used to "disguise" a surveillance camera in a pub car-park. Therefore it's "Not a Stork"

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

A plastic stork? Are you in jail?

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Ha! Cool iPhone shot! The stork is very security conscious; it has all the rooftops covered with that camera. I've heard of Big Brother watching you - but Big Stork is something else!

wow.. what happened to resolution of this image ? cropped ?

1 Mar 2011 1:25pm

@MARIANA: No, this is full frame. The artifacts appeared when I increased the saturation

Juliango from Caen, France

Beautiful !!!

Phil David Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

The saturated colors and the grain effect are superb, especially turning this into
a beautiful work of art. Dramatic and almost surrealistic at the same time.

A great capture of this remarkable scene. Well done.

Now I'm going to suspect surveillance every time I see a bird perched
...the processing adds to the quirkiness!

I love this effect very much but hope it is not the last day of the Earth as I saw the sun seems exploding a bit...

Becky from los angeles, United States

Oh my gosh! Too funny and so "new world order" of them hiding the surveillance camera like this - wild and embarrassing. It looks seriously apocalyptic. And with a phone? Wow. Perfect cinematic shot - and. ... certainly not a stork. : )!

Great colors and POV! Not so bad with iPhone.

Sunder from Chennai, India

Great shot and processing - considering it is a camera phone...
How does iPhone 4 compare to 3G-S ( I just got it 6 months unfair of these guys to release the next model so soon...)

2 Mar 2011 1:00pm

@Sunder: The iPhone 4 camera is streets ahead of the 3GS, it is really good. Apart from that, the battery life is much better, and, if you have amazing eyesight, you will notice the screen is better(Most people can't tell the difference) Then again, there is the HUGE Apple screw-up over the arial on the 4-you HAVE to add a plastic case to the 4 to be able to make or receive calls!!!!! The 5 will be released in April-May, so we'll have to see what new goodies come along with the piece of lovliness!
