Didn't whether to pose this question in the tech forum or here, but here goes. Two pictures of a butterfly (a speckled wood, I think), taken in our garden last week, with my phone camera. I've cropped them to approximately the same scale, but the lower one was taken on maximum zoom. What I want to know is: why the huge colour difference? The upper pic shows accurate colours, while the lower, zoomed, one has washed out the green chair to grey, and made the butterfly spots look pink.

The phone chooses the white balance and has done a worse job with the second photo.

 

White balance really just means "the colour of light that was landing on the scene". Different light sources have different colours (it's really obvious between say sunlight and tungsten light bulbs, but even shade is different to direct sunlight light).

When you take a pic, unless you set the white balance your camera (or phone) analyzes the image and guesses the white balance from there.

My best guess would be that because the phone lacks an optical zoom (it's essentially either cropping in or extrapolating pixels or maybe a combo of the both), the quality of the file produced when zoomed is worse, with higher noise or artifacting, and that throws off the phone's white balance algorithm. It would also depend on what else is in the frame for both - seeing them without the crop might help.

Photographer removes our smartphones to show our strange and lonely new world

More in article

Are you reading this on a handheld device? There’s a good chance you are. Now imagine how’d you look if that device suddenly disappeared. Lonely? Slightly crazy? Perhaps next to a person being ignored? As we are sucked in ever more by the screens we carry around, even in the company of friends and family, the hunched pose of the phone-absorbed seems increasingly normal.

US photographer Eric Pickersgill has created “Removed,” a series of photos to remind us of how strange that pose actually is. In each portrait, electronic devices have been “edited out” (removed before the photo was taken, from people who’d been using them) so that people stare at their hands, or the empty space between their hands, often ignoring beautiful surroundings or opportunities for human connection. The results are a bit sad and eerie—and a reminder, perhaps, to put our phones away.

Okay... Here are some of my very recent edits following my attendance at the US Navy airshow at NAS Lemoore last month... Feel free to go all 'Top Gun' for a few moments.

Great shots Ravers, I am laughing a lot at the Fighting Redcocks in the bottom one, which isn't a reflection on your photography skills

Middle one is the best of the bunch

Thanks Bickster... VFA-22 (squadron) are the 'Fighting Redcocks...' what a name!! I spent quite a bit of time at the show talking to the crew of various squadrons and purchasing squadron patches for my collection.

Other notable squadrons based at Lemoore include - 'The Top Hatters,' 'The Rough Raiders,' 'The Argonauts,' 'The Black Aces,' 'The Black Knights,' and my personal favourite for Star Wars reasons... 'The Bounty Hunters.'  

Interesting fact (interesting-ish) - there are more F-18 Hornets based at Lemoore, California than the RAF have actual number of aeroplanes in their entire fleet. Make of that what you will.
