All photos here are taken with an iPhone 6s, and for display in web and blogs and if you are not particularly keen to print enlargements, the smartphone camera is quite adequate. Please click on an image to view a larger size.
All these photos had been post processed in Photoshop CC. The horizon had been corrected wherever required and Shadows/Highlight details adjusted.
iPhone 6s camera has a lens of 29mm focal length in 35mm format with a maximum aperture of f2.2 , with a 12 megapixel, 1/3″, 1.22um sensor. It can macro focus from about 2 inches from the subject, and on to infinity. So the sensor is quite small compared to even the advanced compact cameras nowadays.
During our visit we were lucky to see a wedding taking place in the Cathedral and below you can see two shots from that wedding. we could not get very close though with the iPhone.
It was magnificent cathedral with beautiful decoration in the interior and a must see spot for any visitor to Georgia. I now leave you with a outdoor shot. Happy shooting.
