    Thank you, Sam! However you uploaded this image, I am actually able to view it within the WPC app! That doesn't happen very often these days.

    Are all the photos in that playlist from L1520?
    If yes, then just wow!
    How did you manage to get such great shots? What settings?
    Thx :). All my shots posted on this forum are with Lumia 1520. But if you mean my flicker-page, they are mostly with Sony Alpha A77 and some expensive lenses.

    For Lumia 1520 I usually use RAW and ISO=100, the rest on auto.

    NP :) I started by uploading directly to WPC, but then I didn't have much control over the image. In my recent posts, I'm uploading the image to my Flicker-page and embedding it into these posts.

    Still playing with the HDR capabilities of the 1520. The capabilities are pretty impressive but the camera really needs to be in a fixed-mount of some type to do a good job since 3-shot (and especially 5-shot) brackets take so long.

    Anyway, both shots below were taken this morning looking down at the intersection of 5th and 2nd in downtown Minneapolis. This was a 5 shot bracketed composition with the exposure stepping set in -1, +1 EV steps. The images were combined using Photomatix Essentials in Windows 8.1

    First shot is using an HDR/Surreal Filter

    Second Shot is using an HDR/Natural Filter

    I prefer the more natural looking one over the surreal one. Does windows phone have a built-in HDR feature?

    There are HDR photo apps available, but I've really not found one I like yet, and it is still hard to match the image processing power of a dedicated desktop image program and high-power GPU for doing HDR manipulation.

    I am finding that I love the Bracketing features in the 1520, in some respects they are more flexible than the Micro 2/3's Sony RX100 I play with. Brackets can be adjusted for 3 or 5 shots and stops can be adjusted over a wide range. The only real gripe I have is that it takes a full second between shots so a 5-frame bracket is 5 seconds. You pretty much have to brace the 1520 or use a tripod to get a decent set of bracket shots given the slow speed.

    Your series of landscapes is looking pretty nice, though I think that grand landscapes like this most recent one you have could benefit from a bit warmer color tone. This camera phone has renewed my interest in photography.

    I have used a fast post processing without any color adjustments. I believe there is room for many improvements there.

    Another shot from the same day, but slightly different angel and time. Still a fast post processing, but with a new experimental attempt for warmer color.

    Thrust SSC taken at the National Transport Museum in Coventry at the weekend while we were at the Gadget Show. 4 sec shutter speed due to low light but came out quite well.

    The IQ from this device continuous to amaze me.. I am in fact more impressed with this than I was with the 1020 since I already had an 808 and knew what is possible. This tho.. way more compact (the size of the camera module) and it provides great image quality.

    I think the snap 800's DSP has a lot to do with this.. I am willing to bet that if the 1020 was Snap 800 powered it would perform way better than it does today.

    I used an ISO of 100-200 for these shots to get less noise.

    The big thing is light. Light is everything. If that's wrong, the whole image is gone.

    For outdoor it's best to shoot on overcast days or when the sun goes down so you avoid the harsh light of the mid day sun, which washes out colours like crazy.
    The next thing is composition. Make sure you show the camera something worth seeing. That part is hit and miss since not everyone shares the taste of the photographer.

    This is my favourite one of the bunch and I almost got killed taking it because I had to sit on a bridge with no side walk to take the photo.

    I actually use it as wallpaper on all my phones.

    Almost a perfect Easter Day in Minneapolis. Straight shot (no alterations other than to scale down to 1080p for this post) of the Old Pillsbury Mill through the Stone Arch Bridge.

    Just bought a 1520 and it'll be arriving tomorrow! Will try to contribute to this thread as I love taking pictures. Unfortunately I don't think my home town is as exciting to look at as the ones in these pictures.
