Sketchy iPhone Contest

Look at the #1 winner for this contest in this Yahoo story.

I think that the winner in the iPhone contest may not be legit. I could be wrong. Yeah, maybe they took it with an iPhone, but they would have Photoshop to get straight lines. I guess Photoshop is okay in the contest… not the end of the world, but not really representative of the default iPhone camera. I’ve been to this place in Hong Kong and you have to aim the phone UP to get that shot, so the lines should lean in. I guess they could have fixed the lines in Snapseed or PS. They amped up the colors too, but, hey, you guys know I don’t have a prob with that… unless they are trying to say the iPhone takes accurate photos of colors, in which case this would not be a good representation because the saturation was amped up externally.

Also, I don’t think the iPhone can go that wide. Unless it has a special lens attachment or it’s a pano… Here’s a photo that one of my Twitter followers took with her iPhone:

And another angle…

Bonus Photos

You’ll see today’s post is about the TD Tadami line in Japan. Here are a few extra photos I took while on the train. I actually take like hundreds and hundreds of photos on these trips, but I’m never sure where to put little miscellaneous ones like these. I thought about starting an Instagram called Trey’s Rejected Photos.

Daily Photo – The TD Tadami Line in Aizuwakamatsu, Fukushima Prefecture

I was so excited to take this train through the mountains of Japan near Aizuwakamatsu! An interesting result is that, even though I took a ton of photos out the windows of the train during the journey, my favorite photo is this one, once I got off the train! I love these Japanese train guys. They take their job so seriously. They have amazing outfits. They are SO nice and patient. And these train guys know EVERYTHING about trains and schedules, so you can go up to any of them, any time, and ask questions and they will figure everything out for you.
