Weekly photo challenge: focus one

I’ve noticed when taking pictures with my iPhone that if I tap on the screen, it will focus where I tap it. Also it adjusts the light levels based on the light and color levels at the point where I tap it. That’s about as fancy as I get with my camera app so far, and here are the results in living color:

The first pic, I tapped on myself in the mirror to focus on me:

For the second, I tapped on the turnstile at the top of the walkway in the far distance:

What really amazes me is the difference in brightness and contrast created by where I choose to focus my picture. I’ve been playing with that a lot more as I take pictures outdoors at sunset and at dusk, situations where lighting is essential. The entire picture changes depending on where you choose to focus.
