Moto G photos

A selection of photos taken with my new Moto G Android (4.3) Smartphone.

I had a few days break at Kilconquhar Castle and took the opportunity to try out my new Moto G camera.

All images are untouched apart from resizing, watermarking or by using the phones own apps to add effects.

The first is in a relatively dull room with mixed light, daylight from the windows and artificial light.

The gardens had some roses still in bloom despite being mid November. Some heavy vignetting was added using the Moto G apps.

Taken almost directly into the sun, the flare adds something without destroying the shot.

The next one is almost the same, straight towards the sun but using the tree to avoid direct sunlight. The flare is minimal, handled really well by the small Moto G camera lens. Slight vignette added and a black border to frame it, all from in-camera apps.

Just a straight forward shot with no gimmicks, tilted to give a bit of drama. The highly light turret and the deep shadows behind are all well handled and if anything lacks contrast.

There is an HDR setting on the Moto G. It is occurring to me I don’t recall whether it was switched on or off for this shot. Ooops. Must try harder next time.

Another internal shot with mixed lighting. I think the Moto G does a good job here.

The Moto G has a flash feature. I’m not a lover of flash so none of these shots have it. Makes a good job of the ornate ceiling.

Finally for now, a shot of the bay and lighthouse at Elie shore.
