    I find the composition pretty poor in all three!

    Your room is very messy. The least you could've done is clean it up before inviting us all to look at it. :D

    All 3 photos look the same.

    Top two look the same. Bottom one looks washed out.

    Top two are 100% identical. Bottom one is washed out and more depressing.

    What exactly is the point of all this? :confused::p

    Agree, can't see a difference between the top two but the third one looks pretty flat - looks like a flash was used on the third one?

    I am gonna guess that the third one of these breathtaking shots was taken with an iPhone 5.

    You obviously thought there was an aspect of the composition that was compelling enough to shoot and that there was a story or point of interest there. To you, what was it? It also looks to have been in a room with overhead fluorescents but you preferred that to doing something with the natural light of the window. White balance and rendering of color can be tricky in that sort of overhead washed out lighting unless you plan for it and deal with it, either in the camera or in post processing.

    Bottom line, and I'm not a photographic genius by any stretch, I'd suggest concentrating on composition and lighting. I vote for the 4th image.;)

    Restating the obvious, the top 2 look more or less identical and the bottom looks as thought it was badly processed.

    I think it's an exposure bracketing thing. The 1st photo is 'normal', then a little over-exposed and then underexposed. The over-exposure is about 1/3 of a stop at best (I'm guess) and the under would likely then be about 2/3.

    Do I win a prize?

    I'm not voting because there isn't any real difference in the 3 and none of them deserve a 'best' ribbon. imho, only of course....

    ====

    Changed my mind... I looked at the big versions instead of the thumbnails... I have no idea what the two first ones are about. But I will stick with my bracketing guess for the 3rd... though much more underexposed then 'fixed' in post.

    Do I still win a prize?

    I'm thinking this is a trick question. The real answer is, "Nothing looks right," mainly because those are Chicago Cub hats. Just saying.

    One and two are close to the same and are PNG files where as the third is a JPG and has double the resolution. They are all as bad as each other in my opinion.

    OP, other than wasting our time looking at mediocre images, what is the point of this post?

    Let me explain a little bit because there is a lot of hate in this thread. One it's my roommate's room. Two I'm not a photographer (pretty apparent) three this was simply me testing my newer phone. I was comparing an older Motorola to my iphone 5. Can anyone explain to me why the third picture (Motorola) zooms in much more when looking at the larger image? Basically the first picture is using HDR second is a using nothing on iphone 5 and third is the Motorola

    They're different devices with different lenses of different focal lengths and different optical qualities using different sensors with different light and colour sensitivities.

    You'd have saved yourself a lot of hassle if you'd asked a straightforward question in the first place. You really did set yourself up there, expecting 3 months of feverish voting on 3 very poor pictures.

    Check the camera specs of the 2 phones on the respective manufacturer's websites, but in simple terms - they're different devices.

    I think your thread is very entertaining. I liked the guessing part.
    I also like the composition of your photos. Its trivial art ... :D
    A lot of people don't appreciate a good old nonsense thread :)

    ----------

    ... this explains why the pictures are different.
    Btw, cellphone cameras are all crap.

    Sometimes HDR is minimal..though I found it hard to really see any differences between #1 & #2.

    Did you do a screenshot of #1 and #2? they have the side letterbox that looks like a screen shot or something.

    As for #3 the image itself is closer, as stated above, because of the lens size/length. I remember when my wife and I took the "same shot" her with a 3GS and me with the 4, they showed different parts because of the lens length.
