A set of images over the next few days from the first photography fieldtrip of the year of Cardiff U3A Photography Group. The theme (as it happened, on a very blustery and damp day) was “Red in the Bay” inspired by the Weeping Window installed at the Senedd Building, so it’s appropriate I start with three images of that installation.
I decided to take some pictures with my iPhone alongside the Sony A7r to see where exactly the difference was most likely to show. I tried to crop the images to about the same size – they were taken at exactly the same location – and then tried to get the best image out of them in post-processing. This, as I said on a pretty changeable day. So in the first pair, I can’t see much difference between the two, with perhaps the one above being slightly more pleasing due to the better light. Which one was taken by the expensive camera? See below for the answer.
The first of the pairing was taken with an iPhone 6s @ ISO 25, 1/480sec at f2.2, focal length 4.15mm, the second with the A7r and its 35mm f2.8 lens @ ISO 400, 1/200sec at f4.
