I'm eager to test the iPhone X camera. I guess we'll probably have some good weather by next June. :(

This is good weather. Maybe you should visit Chicago, or New England this weekend.
Anyway, I am sure you can find something to take a photo of this holiday season!

Oh, OK.
From the front of our house, Klahane Ridge in the background. Taken yesterday. There's still patches of snow on the ground.

As no thread on iPhone photography would be complete without a kitty photo, I submit this one.

I should have had the presence of mind to use Portrait mode, but didn't, so all you get is depth of field.

The only manipulation after my iPhone X photo was using Perspecive Crop in Photoshop to make the fireplace look less tipped over backward.

Portrait Mode isn't so great for cats
or Sofie gets a haircut

First pair is normal on the left portrait on the right
Second pair is the same but a close-in detail

In Apple's lates ad touting the iPhone X Portrait Mode, I detect a nod to Luxo Jr.

BTW, here's my most ambitious iPhone X photography project so far, a three-hour-long time lapse of a Thatching Ant hill. The resulting video is 24 MB, which should be no problem for those of you lucky enough to have high-speed internet. At some point I'll see if I can compress it more.
I shot it on iPhone X in ordinary time-lapse mode from about 9:00 am to about noon. I retimed the video it to 50% speed in Final Cut, and "Shared" for Apple devices.
(If you can't stand ants, it's probably best to skip this video.)

I imagine it set to music:
Act 1 (no direct sun on cool, damp anthill) Morning from Peer Gynt, Grieg
Act 2 (the ants emerge from the hill) Something frantic, like Raymond Scott - Powerhouse (1937)
Act 3 (as the sun really heats the hill and the ants back away in awe) Also Sprach Zarathustra
