Default Should I post it?

Here is a photo I took a couple three weeks back. Should I bother?

Dark. Uninteresting backlight, and in fact the backlight is blown out yet does not look like the sun but rather a large, blobby spot of thinner cloud. Not a silhouette. Don't see a reason to upload it, sorry.

Agreed. Great shot for the personal collection though.

Not that I'm aware of, but I know at least two people who are trying.

It's on my to-do-list but unfortunately I didn't have the $99 for the camera-phone that takes photos greater than 800x600. I would have to guess that the successful attempt will have to be of a stationary train because of the shutter system of the cameras. I don't think I've ever seen a photo of a moving object that has come out tack sharp.

whats the point? A real camera will always take pictures better than a cell phone.

With the X-mass bonus, I saved up enough to get a new phone, and chose the Verizon Chocolate. Its mazimum size is 1260X900 and does take a damn good picture. Sort of poor image quality, but still sharp, even for morning objects. Considering it is a phone, it is really good though.
