I went to the ballet with Florence last weekend.  We thoroughly enjoyed American Ballet Theatre’s performance of Cinderella.  Florence is a gifted artist and as I watched her draw picture after picture in her pocket sketchbook, I was inspired to explore my cell phone’s camera capabilities.

The ceiling and chandeliers in the Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center are breathtakingly beautiful. I’ve thought that every time I’ve walked in there over the past thirty-plus years.  So, at intermission, while Florence drew, I played with my camera.

This is how the picture came out with a simple point the phone up at the ceiling and snap:

These are the images I snapped playing with the phone camera settings:

And these I further “refined” with Picmonkey:

Who knew intermission could be so much fun?

  1. Love the purple one! The original – it’s hard to see the stuff on the lights because it’s so bright. When you adjusted the color, some more of the detail showed. Purple’s my favorite color!
