The Final (overdone) Result
I started with this next image
- Which is a straight shot made through the glass globe of a lawn light
- The globe’s bottom half shows the scene in front of me
- The top half, starting above the clouds, show reflections from behind me
- The globe itself introduced a nice polarizing effect
I then turned around and made the 2nd layer which is the line of trees you see reflected in the original image’s globe just under the reflection of the setting sun; the camera automatically layered it
Not leaving well enough alone, I walked a few feet to a nearby small boulder and layered it to add texture to the image.
Here’s another. Same idea with two layers.
Captured with an iPhone 6 Plus
Straight from the camera; no post-processing

This is one of a series of short daily posts scheduled for automatic posting through the first week of August. By then I should be settled in my new home and ready for a normal daily routine.
These quickie posts illustrate non-conventional camera phone images, but don’t explain the “how”. Explanations will follow later. Let me know which ones interest you for future elaboration.
Keep in mind, I’m an iPhone newbie and many of the illustrative images reflect my inexperience. As with a DSLR – it’s all about technique (which I lack with the iPhone).
