In the small town of Bridgend in Wales, Martin Chainey captured the amazing view of an old church. “This church was built as part of the former Glamorgan County Lunatic Asylum,” says Chainey. Chainey used his iPhone 4 with the Pro HDR app, but decided to convert the image to black and white. He used Pixlr Express to do the final conversion and touch up to this beauty. This isn’t just a black and white image. The image holds a wide range of black to white tones. Thanks for the great shot, Martin!

If you have some smartphone photography you’re proud of, feel free to share them with me here on You can email me at You can also join my Smartphone Photographers Community on Google+ and submit there as Chainey did.
