Through Glass And Out Of Moving Vehicles

We spent the weekend in the Swiss Alps in Scuol. An ideal place for some nice touristy photos. Especially of the beautiful castle of Tarasp. The shots that impressed me the most have one thing in common. Both were taken with the iPhone XS out of a moving vehicle and through the closed window. 

On the bus back from Ftan I noticed this amazing view. No time to grab the A7. No time to do manual settings. No time to open Halide. No time to avoid reflections. Just press the shutter on the iPhone and hope for the best. Done.  

I immediately forgot about the photo. I didn‘t expect much. Back at home the surprise: 

iPhone XS: No edits.

iPhone XS: With a bit of Lightroom magic.

The second shot I took on the train to Scuol. I just pressed the iPhone against the Window. Once again I didn‘t expect much. Maybe a nice souvenir of the castle of Tarasp. But nothing I would show anyone. The circumstances were just too bad. Really? 

iPhone XS: No edits.

iPhone XS: With a few edits in Lightroom.

iPhone XS: An auto creation by Google Photos.

As a bonus, I shot some more pictures on the way back. This time I was ready. I opened the train window in time and had my amazing Sony A7 III with the even more amazing 85mm GM within reach. Even though it was midday and the light everything but ideal the pictures turned out quite ok.
