The most powerful steam locomotive built in Resita

The CFR 142.072 was the most powerful steam locomotive that the Romanian National Railway company had. This locomotive was designed to pull both passenger and fright cars at a speed of 110 km/h. They were built between 1937 and 1939 at UDR Resita. Now this locomotive can be found in the Resita steam locomotive museum along with other locomotives which were built in Resita.

This was the biggest and largest steam locomotive produced in Romania and as far as I know, the four large wheels of the locomotive have a diameter of almost 2 meters.

Macro Photography With My LG G4

A couple of days ago, I have decided to capture some macro or close up shots with my LG G4 smartphone. Since outside was very pleasant that day, I’ve grabbed my phone and I went outside to search for smaller things to photograph. Unfortunately, I left my small gorilla tripod at home so all my photos were captured handheld.

After a short walk around the place where I’m living, I found a couple of interesting things to photograph like some frozen wildflowers and some snow left on the ground.

After my small outdoors trip in the cold and frozen nature, I have also decided to capture some photos inside my house using my small gorilla tripod for extra stability.

Here are 3 photos captured outside:

Macro photography LG G4: snow on the ground
1/1250 sec, f/1.8, ISO 50
Close-up photo: Frozen wildflower with snow on it
1/500 sec, f/1.8, ISO 50
Rusty pipe
1/270 sec, f/1.8, ISO 50

Here are 3 macro photos captured indoors:

Glasses on a scientific calculator
2 sec, f/1.8, ISO 50
Romanian money coins
1/8 sec, f/1.8, ISO 50

My personal conclusions

Here are some of my conclusions after copying all my macro photos to my laptop and watching them:

  • The outdoor photos were a little bit overexposed.
  • Focusing problems if the subject/camera is moving slightly due to small gusts of wind or other factors.
  • Inexact color saturation.
  • The photos are noisy despite the fact that I shoot them at the lowest ISO (which in the case of the LG G4 is 50) and I had plenty of natural or artificial light.

Don’t forget that overall its a great camera which can offer you some great photos if you know how to use it properly. If you plan to buy an LG G4 for photography then do it, I bet you won’t regret this decision.
