Shot with an iPhone 5- amazing little camera, …er, phone!

I came across this tableau a few days ago as I was getting into my car. I moved the fast food wrapper a bit closer, then took the shot. It didn’t occur to me until writing this just now that I left it there, all the while commenting to myself on what kind of person just throws their litter on the ground. Well, what kind just sees it as a photo-op?

All I can say is there’s a lot of noise when you shoot at ISO 6400 with a Canon T2i. This is  Caesar’s Place Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas NV shot from the parking garage.

Photo 101- Day Eleven: A Pop of Color

The above image may not seem like it has anything to do with color, but just hear me out. This young lady’s outfit was a very bright pinkish – orange. Almost garish. In fact, if she were jogging at night, I’m sure no one would have a problem seeing her. Well, I was going to convert it into black and white and set all the individual color sliders at minus 100. Then I added just the yellow to get some skin tone (yes, the yellow) and this is what I got. No other color slider has been moved from -100 even though the brown would suggest some red was added. Even the pink tones in her shorts and top look as if there is some red in here but, according to the lightroom sliders, there is not. But, you know what? Who really cares if there is red. I like the color treatment and so this is my post for Photo 101’s prompt!
