    Rules for this thread: Original pics only. State what device you took 'em with.

    I'll start:





    Device: Moto X Pure phone. I'm not that enamored with the camera in this thing. To be honest, I think the camera in my two year old Note 3 was better.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    This is no where near as impressive. Taken with Galaxy S5 mini.

    Photography skillz on these is pretty weak but subject matter is cool:




    That brightest "star" is venus, taken at 6:24 this morning with iPhone 6S plus by itself, and looking through a 20X Alpine spotting scope.

    As a reminder how far cell phone camera technology has come along, this picture of "Liberty Enlightening the World" was taken from a cruise ship in NY harbor back in 2007 with a Palm Treo:



    Funny story. I used to keep my boat in a marina on the back side of Staten Island, and spent enough time touring NY harbor where I purposely left the real digital camera in our cabin for sail-away. Hence, the extremely poor cell phone image for this timing-sensitive photo op that I wasn't expecting.....

    Galaxy S5 Active. Flash disabled so as to not disrupt the event, and night time plus fire didn't make for a great picture.

    This is from my son's Boy Scout Troop holding a flag retirement ceremony last night. They accept them from local individuals and businesses that have flags to dispose of. They'll do 20 or 30 at a time every few months. It's a genuinely moving thing to watch... they take it very seriously.

    Taken today, using the Moto X Pure again:



    Bonus points if anyone deduces the location.

    Ross Mountain??? (You stripped the metadata, so I can't look at the GPS coordinates to give an exact location.) However, since the leaves up here in NY are already turning and they are green in your picture, my guess would be somewhere in the Blue Ridge area of Appalachians south of the Mason-Dixon line.....

    If only "Ross-Mountain" had such a view!
