A removable battery has a few advantages over an internal one:
1. If I have 2, then all it takes is a few seconds for my phone to be back to 100%
2. I can easily replace it when it's reaching the end of its life and starts bloating
3. I can perform a battery pull when something goes wrong with the software
1: Fair enough, but for what reason do you immediately need a new battery in your phone? 99.9% of the time I don't mind putting a portable battery charger with my phone in my pocket.
2: With the Nexus 4, I can do that as well, just takes two Torx screws and a flat wedge.
3: That's what the hardware keys on the device are for! For the N4 at least, all I have to do is hold the power and volume down buttons for about 5 seconds if I need to soft reset it and it's worked 100% of the time for me. This concerned me a lot since I had to do battery pulls a lot on my previous phone.
Welllll this is going back a little ways, but we were talking about star photos a little while ago. I saw some pretty stars out this morning and tried to snap a photo of them, unfortunately I didn't do a very good job, and the sun was starting to come up so there's some light bleeding there, but I don't think it was tooooo bad for a first try! It could probably look a lot better if someone with some editing skills was able to modify it a little more though. :P
Nooooiice, I'm sure you'd get heaps better results without the pesky sun trying to interfere.
I think the most important thing during editing is setting a steep S curve for the tone thingamajig, this will have the biggest impact on the image.
Here's the super S-curve version, can definitely see the sun creeping in at the very bottom.
Oh well, some day when I have a free weekend (I.E. not for at least the next two weekends) I'll drive up into the mountains and take a glorious shot in the middle of the night, and it will (hopefully) be bloody beautiful because where I'm at, there's very little light bleed from the city lights!
I really liked these songs, especially the disco opening.
Dunno what it is, but modern disco really makes me just wanna get up and daaaaaaance!~
