Jeff which iPhone was that? Its a very nice photo and what appears to be a very accurate representation of the scene with color and exposure. I find my wife's iPhone 5 makes photos slightly more vivid than my iPhone 4s but they still have a very natural look.

That was an iPhone 4S.  I've been using ProCamera mostly, in expert mode, and setting the exposure circle to a blue part of the sky to use as a middle grey. That's an old school incident light metering trick that works very well with an iPhone.

I don't do much with color. In lightroom I bump the clarity about 15%, but's just local contrast, doesn't really do much to the color. I sharpen a bit, and do about 20% luminance noise reduction. That's pretty much it.
