    I like the top one
    Very dramatic
    Have you done the editing on the phone??
    Is it the 11 or 11pro??
    Told my partner my intention of buying the 11pro soon, backed off out of harms way....to my utter amazement she welcomed the idea, replying “ does that mean you won’t have so much camera gear?? “
    “yes “ was my stunned reply.

    I’m curious to know what actual outputs are like when printed. Many say prints show the failings of the small sensor??
    Do you intend to print any??

    Fair bit of thin haloing around the high contrast areas (the lamp and the leaves on the far right for example). Adding during processing or there in the original?

    No Tony, it was me being a little heavy handed. Here's the original SOOP.

    Printing? No problem with A3+ out of an Epson SC P 700.

    Here you might as well see the other one in it's original state.

    For my sort of thing the IPhone really does have a place. So now it's the phone plus my new purchase, the Leica Q P and my Fuji XPro2 with 23mm lens.

    The bottom picture sharpness is quite ridiculous, it just confirms my previous comments that smartphones are a fantastic substitute for non specialised photography (I.e sports, macro etc etc)

    Again Brian, which 11 is it? The pro has the 3 lenses including the ultra wide. That’s possibly the one I’ll go for.

    It's the 11, I don't reckon the 11pro is worth the extra, at least not for me. The tele lens bit is a crop.. I'm getting files around the 11Mb plenty for A3 printing.

    I am sure I read that when the 12 is released, they are dropping the 11 pro. Might get discounted (OK, knowing Apple probably not!)

    Thanks for the heads up :)
    I was originally going to buy the newer SE model to replace my original SE. But my son wants the SE for Xmas, so I’ll buy the 11pro (or 12 if it’s out and worth the extra)
    A friend has just upgraded to the 11pro and keeps sending me shots. He’s currently on holiday abroad and sent me a shot where he’s captured his son doing a backflip into the pool. I’m shocked that it froze everything and got the exposure right. Looks stunning, I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t be proud to have taken it. Opened my eyes.

    Off topic - I’m still in de-cluttering mode. 2nd skip is almost full!!
    I’ve condensed my entire photo gear down to 2 small storage boxes...that’s from what was originally almost half the junk in the loft and spare bedroom (tripods, studio flash, bags etc) it is incredibly liberating.
    When the house is done and decorated (6-8wks) I’ll reward myself to either the 11pro or 12. I’ll then begin the cull on what’s left of my canon system.
    2021 will be the year my photography turns over a new leaf - “travel light travel far” as they say, can’t wait!

    De -cluttering is a great idea. I just rate the iPhone, above all its fun and a trifle naughty.

    Totally agree with the “fun” comment
    If I go out with a dslr and lenses I feel pressured to get results otherwise why spend all that money, carry all that gear unless you are going to get top pictures.
    With a smartphone there is no pressure at all, you can make it as easy or hard as you like...and the best thing is nobody gives you a second look. I bet street photography is a doddle with modern smartphones.
    Good for you Brian, I think it’s great that you’ve been open minded and not just dismissed them as a lesser tool for capturing images.

    Yes, I do agree, photography above all for we amateurs should be fun. I remember years ago on this forum, it might have been Fen suggested collective nouns for photographers. Mine didn't go done too well, it was 'A Sad' of photographers.

    For street photography as you suggest the phone is ideal. Another factor, the iPhone is not just weatherproof....it's waterproof down to 50' for 30 minutes.

    ...though whether the photographer will still function after being 50' down for 30 minutes is another matter!
