Cheating again ? Well it is a single image. As ever TG6 with off camera Skyray lighting. Uploaded to Flickr as individual images then saved by a screenshot. " A day in the digger's life ".

me and a colleague were treated to a cracking view of some sunbeams in bull pot of the witches yesterday. Just a quick couple of snaps on my iPhone, so lacks some clarity/contrast, but totally does the job to show the feeling of the place I think.

Josh, lovely shots. Does your iPhone have a 'Pro' function buried in the menu system? I've got a Nokia XR20 (Android), so not top-end by any stretch, but in the Pro menu I can set the phone to take shots in RAW (DNG) format. This does mean further work on the computer, but it also means awkward shots of bright highlights and dark shadows can be managed better. I took this one in Boothlee Pipe, high up in Millers Dale a few weeks ago, handheld, in pretty low light - it definitely required some more work in Photoshop, but it handled the very bright daylight and shadows far better than the default 'pseudo HDR' setting could.

It’s a fairly old iPhone so will be limited by its sensor anyway.

I only edited using the built in editing tools rather than the more advanced editor on my iPad which seems to be able to save highlights and shadows way better, just a quick snap though and plenty good enough for my needs (insta/Fb).

There’s also an element of taste to it, I think caves as inherently dark places need that element of some details lost in shadows for context, perhaps not as much as I’ve ended up with, but as I say I’m not looking to sell to nat geo.

Wonder if hidden earth will have a taken on phone category in the photo completion this year?

I am very glad to see others have been sharing again ! I only use my iPhone myself . I shall have to have a little look for another 3 to share .

1 from the most recent trip very strange style of boot, all the others we find are the standard design this is more ankle height.

For the more fashion conscious miner
