comparative ICM

As with my previous blog post I have been experimenting with longer exposures with my iPhone. The goal of this is to move around a subject during the exposure to see how closely I can mimic the Ventosa ‘in the round’ effect.

Following are two images, one taken on my DSLR (18 shots taken around the tree, then blended), the other a long exposure (~3 seconds handheld) on the iPhone.

Taking all into consideration I believe the iPhone does an admirable job, and should not be discounted when opportunities arise (the one drawback being lack of the processing control allowed when blending multiple images).

So the question is - can you tell which is which, and which image do you prefer?
