Spring Blossom in Shoreditch - iPhone XS vs Fuji X-T3

There is an amazing tree near my offices in East London that begged to be captured on the first day of Spring.

I only had my iPhone XS with me and captured a couple of shots utilising the fake DOF of Portrait mode.

I decided to return the next day with my Fuji X-T3 and 16-55mm

The iPhone does a great job and the fake DOF is generally effective but of course it can’t compete with a full featured mirrorless camera. The 16-55mm gives some flexibility for compositions and the high resolution RAW files can be manipulated in post-processing for interesting effects using Capture One Pro Styles.
