A blurred passer-by in the theater district. Taken with in-camera HDR. I was surprised how well this worked. I might start using Iphone as a camera more often! Very little PP in LR3. No crop, no boosting of sat - just a bit of Clarity. Colors are as taken. These were the bright lights of the theater district (maybe with some help from Iphone software :)

A well fitting quote from Macbeth as the title. ;) Very interested in how this scores. I have no idea but it is not a candid shot I expect most other entries to be so most likely low 5.

Oh, well, hit 5.97 at some point. Not too bad even considering that against my expectations there were extremely few candid shots. Most entries focused on trying to reproduce DSLR shots as closely as possible.

I am amazed that nobody realized that getting in-focus background with an out-of-focus walker with a phone camera is not that easy at all! I guess many did not like that it was in color.

This was one of my top favorites, and I'm really shocked it wasn't in the top 10, at least. It's so rich-looking in color and the man in motion is the perfect touch.

I like it, its interesting and shows great perspective; the color range is nice and moody and works great, much better than it would have in Black and white.
