    There are some really good pics on here. I was actually hoping to see some bad ones. I hear a lot of people criticize the picture quality of the Razr, but I just don't see it. All of the pictures that I have taken have turned out good.

    The camera on auto settings with no post production (using the stock camera app) will tend toward cooler colours; basically, it means it tends to favour the blue end of the spectrum as opposed to the red. Here's a photo of my dog cooling off at a local charity event taken with the stock camera app on auto settings:

    2012-06-02_10-45-42_55.jpg

    If you notice, the colours are not quite true to life. Too cool. Here the image is again after applying some filters to "warm it up" a bit:
    2012-06-02_10-45-42_55.jpg

    The first shot isn't bad, but you can see the issue with the colours when compared with the second shot.

    As for something like HDR, it's a great thing to have to get a full exposure range. That same day, my sister was doing some sidewalk art for a local art group. Here's a work in progress of her chalk art:
    2012-06-02_13-12-06_HDR.jpg

    This is with absolutely no post production (i.e. editing after the shot was taken). You can see the rich colour, deep blacks, and good highlights.

    All in all, the shooter on the RAZR is pretty decent for a modern smartphone camera, but it does have a few quirks. However, with a very little bit of work (a little post production to get the colours right and/or use of an app like HDR Camera+ for shots of non-active things) it takes some really nice shots. I'm very happy with it.

    Agreed! I've been using the stock editor to get a little richness back into my photos, but just downloaded the free Photoshop Express editor to see if that gives me a little bit more level of control.

    Exactly what i found, I have not used the stock editor extensively but ill give it a look, what i found that gives instant richness to photos is instagram, it has a exposure toggle which helps a lot, only problem is photos get cropped. Are there any other tricks you could suggest? And to your knowledge does the enhance option of the stock editor help at all?

    Below I've attached photos that I worked on with instagram only the exposure setting was used.

    Yeah, HDR sucks for action shots (even if that "action" is something simply moving its head a little bit in 2 seconds).

    You have some really good lighting and some excellent scenery for those shots, which helps a great deal. The RAZR actually takes fairly good shots in bright sunlight (and those scenes would be hard to take bad shots of; really beautiful settings).

    What you've found with Instagram speaks to what I was getting at: the RAZR camera's photos only need a little help to get where they ought to be. I haven't used the enhance option on the stock editor, but I have used the editor and it'll do what you need it to. Mainly focus on the big three: colour (temperature, mainly), contrast, and exposure. With literally about 30 seconds spent on each photo you can nudge it over the edge from a so-so phone camera shot to a legitimately good photo. You definitely have an eye for scene composition and colours/contrast, so I should think you would really make your photos pop with very little effort (I have some of the technical knowledge, but I definitely lack the gifted "eye").

    Weird. All those lines are not in the original pics.
