I took my new cell phone out for a bit more fun today. The colour balance and crispness has really surprised me:
Orange yellow lillies in fulll bloom

I think the greens are a bit off still, I’ll have to sit and stew over that before I decide what to do. I wanted to test the focus and closeup features primarily so I kept taking photos of the same plant. All you need to do with the Windows 10 camera app is tap the screen where you want the camera to focus and it pulls up a sharp image very quickly:

Orange yellow lilly stamen

Move in, tap section you want as focal point, tap camera icon and out comes a photo.  Not bad for a modest, inexpensive little smart phone camera.
