For best results on the iPhone 4 camera I recommend the Adobe Photoshop Express camera app which can be bought. I gives great results especially the reduce noise and vibrant modes makes mundane pics look good. Here is an example.

Had been to a local Market. It was a good experience on street photography. All images taken with due permission. Tweaked a bit in LR.

Looks very narrow DOF. What was the Aperture and distance to subject?

I wanted the shot like that, with face properly in focus! It is f/3.2 with 50mm, distance to the dog's face was just more than a feet.

Yeh, the narrow DOF worked well in your shot

Clevermax,
Looks like you're having a lot of fun with your 50mm . These legacy lenses can work some magic.

TG,
Nikon V1 again? :P. These small cameras put the fun back in shooting.

I went to Lalbagh on Saturday, the only place I would want to go everyday. Anyway, spring is here and I was there to see if I could get something interesting. I was out with the looked down upon lens, the 75-240mm. Both of the following shots were made with the G1 and 75-240mm using a voightlander adapter. They were handheld, so am not so happy with the sharpness and noise. Have to go back and try these again. The background made me go crazy as soon as I got the first photograph. Longer lenses definitely help and I was using a 480mm EFL one. As usual, C&C is welcome!

EDIT: Better version here:
