I enjoy these shapes and textures, but I also wanted to test the iPhone 5 camera's improved ability to capture low-light images. These pipes are located in a nearly dark underground parking garage. I shot them in the light that was available. And, in spite of using the Hipstamatic app which always dims an image a bit, and my deliberate softening of the image here and there, I'm happy with the camera's resolution.

Hipstamatic 260 1/17 second F/2.4 ISO 400 33 mm (35mm equiv.)

Like an accidental sculpture, Dulcie. And I guess you put a tick in the low-light box, too !
