    rainysticks.jpgleaf.jpgbench-arm.jpg Took these today during the rainy weather. Both of my posts on this thread have been of pictures in the rain. Not sure why, but there is just something peaceful that I love about rain. It makes me feel as if I have an excuse to just sit inside all day and do nothing. I get to open the windows, feel the cool air that rain creates, and just listen to the pitter of the rain hitting the leaves of trees. Love it.

    Side note: I edited the first photo slightly in Gimp. The water slide to my pool was visible and I felt that it really degraded the photo. SOOO... in my best attempt I tried to get rid of it. If you zoom in you can probably see where I did a little work. I'm not what you would call an expert. :) However, the other two photos had nothing done to them. Came straight off my 900.

    Really amazing photos. I agree, rain is just so peaceful. It's like a controlled chaos, all these random droplets of water, falling, but yet creating a peaceful atmosphere. Reminds me that the Lumia 900 has the hardware and ability to take such awesome photos. I wish Nokia would keep updating it, at least changing some of the algorithms so photo quality is more consistent. I've had my share of frustrations taking photos and it just never came out like how it looks on the screen because of post processing the 900 does.

    Here is an image I just took. I have Camera Extras installed, as well as WP 7.8 (latest update). As you can see, its not a bad picture. I didn't use any fancy settings or a scene mode. Everything is on auto. However, there is still noise in the photo, even though its a daylight photo. Not a lot of noise, and its certainly better than the Lumia 900 at launch. My other smartphone is an iPhone 5, and it takes pretty much noise free photos in daytime. wp_000005.jpg

    I was disappointed on how the auto settings in the camera handled environments. But being me, i fiddled with the settings, especially ISO, and Metering Mode. My first big foray into mobile photography was the New York International Auto Show a couple months back. This is a pic i took of a SRT Viper TA(Presumably meaning "Track Attack". And they say the camera is a disappointment....I strongly disagree.

    Seeing all the camera samples from the 1020 (and all the comparisons between the 920 and 925) makes me appreciate the 900 even more. Nokia really needs to tone it down on the WP8 noise reduction and post processing :|

    A picture of one of my mum's camellia flowers, just after some rain. Background noise removed in photoshop, as usual :)
    Wish I had a DSLR ><

    Something a little less pretty I took a while back, an orbweb spider eating a bug that "flew" in her web. So happy I got this shot - pretty much had to put up my hand right next to the spider so the 900 would focus (it wouldn't on its own on something this small), lock it with a half press of the shutter button, remove it, step in a few times with digital zoom (I know I shouldn't have, which is why its a little grainy) before taking the pic :)

    You're probably in the wrong forum - but i'd try plugging it into a wall charger and leaving it for about an hour to get a reasonable amount of power into it. Charging it via USB often doesn't supply the phone with enough power to boot - its happened to me before. After waiting an hour, unplug it, and boot the phone by pressing these buttons...

    Volume down + camera + power. Hold these down. Then release them all when the phone vibrates. It should turn on, but if that doesn't work you might have to consider a hard reset (which deletes all your stuff and restores it to the state it was when you bought it).

    Lillium Stargazer Lily. Noise removed in background and exposure corrected (i often expose at -0.5 to stop whites blowing out, and bump it back up in Photoshop).


    Two monarch butterflies ...being naughty. Slight blue chromatic aberration on wing spots removed, noise removed in background.


    Cicada nymph exoskeleton. A lot of digital zoom on this pic (urgh) but I find this is the only way to get close enough with insects. A bit of contrast enhancement to bring out detail.
