Photographying with a high-end DSLR is great for having high quality photos and using numerous great options, and I love it. With that in mind, I also enjoy taking photos with mobile phones to capture fun photos of my kids and locations to record my memories, and typically that is when I do not have my big camera by side. Mobile phones are handy to use. The story of a photo is independent to the type of the used camera. That is why I think mobile phone camera is great for documentation and recording memories although I cannot produce high quality prints out of that.
That much said, here is a photo I took in a Cathedral in Barcelona, Spain, when I had not my DSLR camera along.
This is taken on Android phone and it is touched with Snapseed photo editor.

To take the photo bracketing is used, and I merged 4 of the photos with different exposures manually in PS and then edited in Capture NX2.
It was my first time shooting with fantastic 24mm Nikkor lens, which I borrowed it from +Aziz Nasuti and I thank him for it. The lens is really great.

To take this direct shot towards the sun, I used bracketing. The camera was set on a tripod and I took 5 bracketing shots with 1 EV stops, 2 down, 2 up, and the middle is the given manual exposure. Manual focus is important. I don't have a remote shutter release, so I set the camera on self-timer with 5 shots each time. To merge the photos, only 3 of the shots are used. I applied the first enhancement to the RAW files by Nikon Capture NX2 and exported them as TIFF files. Then I merged the 3 TIFF files using Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud.
I hope you like the photo. As always, comments, critics, and tips are very welcome.
p.s. Many thanks to my friend, +Aziz Nasuti for his tips and company.

Light and contrasts of this location made taking the photo challenging with a single shot. Too bright sky and sunny areas on one side and shadows on another side. Using gradual ND filters, bracketing or HDR could be the way to go, but I didn't do that due to limitations and I only took a single shot. Then I tried to fix it in post processing.
Finally, here is the photo:
- make sure to launch Nikon Transfer from View NX2 or Capture NX2 file menu.
