Same scene... different result! Smoky Mountains of Tennessee...

Who knows where the time goes... a little something different today... a fall scene from the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee with two images from the same location. One image was shot with my big girl camera (Nikon D7000 with 18-200mm Nikon lens; aperture priority) and one with my iPhone 4s native camera in HDR mode. Both were processed further, the big girl image post processing was done in Lightroom, Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4. The iPhone image post processing is covered on my iPhone blog.

First, the "big girl" camera image:

Second, the iPhone camera image:
retro filter applied

The two images have a completely different feel to them... I like them both for different reasons. One of the most wonderful things I've discovered in taking tours with John Barclay and Dan Sniffin (marvelous tour leaders) is how much fun it is to play around with the original image to enhance the beauty of what my eye sees. Their tours always involve scouting on their part before we arrive in the area so we are assured that they will be taking us to scenes such as this one.
