    Woke up this morning, and a new, lone bloom was on our rose bush that I pruned back this week.

    Sunset, taken with HDR.

    After the sun went down. It's already dark outside, and I couldn't see to get it in focus, but must have done okay. Not too bad. 4 second exposure, holding my breath and holding the phone in my hand. I must say I'm impressed. The street light down the street made an interesting reflection off the hood of the car. Not exactly a great framed picture here, just experimenting with exposure time. No filters, no special settings, just a manual 4 second shutter speed. Looks like a daylight shot, but it's a night shot. Believe me, I couldn't even see the red car, and this 640 even picked up the color. I braced my hand against a post to steady it.

    My Sunday night, I overcooked the steak a bit. Oh well..

    PS. anyone know how to make the pics turn the right way? They always go sideways... Even when I rotate before I upload.

    Kind of a bad shot, but I like my new Halo mouse.

    Saw this little fella while waiting for my daughter to arrive on the school bus.

    The people I was waiting with had iPhones and they were absolutely amazed at how well the picture turned out. Especially since I had to get the phone REALLY close without it jumping on me.

    If anyone wants to know what kind of spider it is, it is a Squash Spider. I call it that because moments after I took the picture, I took a very large rock, put it on top of the spider, and began stomping it.

    Seriously, though, if anyone knows what kind of spider it is, I'd love to identify it.

    No editing and this was with stock settings. I will have to check out the link that OP posted.

    New rose blooming early this morning. Got a shot of it with my 640 while the dew was still wet on the rose. The detail in the moisture is pretty amazing to me for an 8MP phone camera. Best viewed full size.

    Also, on the way home this evening, just had to pull over for a moment for this quick shot of a sunset.

    Some bed and breakfast decor! Quack quack. I think the first two were just taken with automatic settings. I used manual focus for the last one.

    Seen Trump last night and happened to snap a pic with my 640. Not award winning photography but I'd say he camera works pretty well.

    I can't believe we still have roses blooming so late in the year

    I snapped this one in a light drizzle rain, being careful to keep the phone dry. Made the shot one-handed, made difficult by the absence of a camera button. It's hard to tap the screen and not drop a 640 in the rain, but I needed the other hand to hold the rose steady in the whipping wind. It wouldn't stay still long enough to get a focus on it. ;)

    I was inspired by seeing the macro picture of the water droplets on a leaf taken with a 950XL (see article here) and decided to give something similar a try with the Lumia 640.

    Now, there is NO way that it can be matched, because, let's face it, the 640 is a much inferior camera to the 950XL, not to mention as far as macro shots go, you just can't get as close with the 640.

    However, We've had some rain, and I took a few pics with my 640 outside in the drizzle again, trying to capture as best I could a shot that would show a leaf and water droplets, and some decent detail. It took me 4 tries to get the proper shot, because every time I was ready to take a shot, a gust of wind would come along and blow the leaf out of the viewing area. Grr. Patience is key in getting a good shot, as always.

    The first one I'm posting is the "crop."

    The second is the original image. The only editing done was on the crop to crop the size.

    You can see from the original image that you just can't get as close to the leaf with a 640 as you can with a 950XL. Still, not a bad bit of detail that shows what a 640 can actually do.

    For a phone that I bought for $80 new without a contract, I am quite impressed with how well they turned out.

    One more from earlier in the day before it started getting dark. You've got to zoom in 100% on the pic to see the veins in the leaf, but the detail is pretty decent for 8MP.

    Cool.. I did some similar "water droplets on leaves" pics a while back when I had my 1020. I'll have to see if I can find them and compare them to the new 950 macro sample...

    Dude, that bug looks like it's dead. Apparently you got too much detail if I can tell that. ;)

    Oh, it was very much alive and crawling around! I believe it's a type of stink bug.
