    I'm not so satisfied with my photos taken with iPhone 6. And I even ordered some macro and zoom lenses which are fun from mpj.

    BUT my most important thing to do is improving photography skill. For this photo, what can I do to improve it? Thank you.

    On the photo above, instead of centering the stairs, try moving to one side and let the stairs enter from one edge of the frame, leading your view towards the center.

    Here's a good article I found on using more manual controls to get a good shot.

    Controlling light exposure is important. If you're using the stock camera, you can preset exposure this way:

    There's several nice camera apps with presets that add to shooting great photos. Camera+, ProCamera 8, and ProShot are a few good ones.

    The angle of your shot is not that bad. The Wall to the right should gave been cut out. And in this particular photo, the contrast between light and dark should be more balanced to show off that great log railing. Something like this:
    In my opinion anyways! LOL

    I'm not sure, but it seems like that woulda been a decent candidate for HDR. Seems like it may have come out with results more like the edit you made.

    Maybe it is just me, but what is wrong with the original image? I mean, we aren't talking DSLR here. For what we have at our disposal, I think that picture looks pretty good.

    It wasn't so much about that image. He asked about photography and how to improve his skills. The image was just an example to use. The original looked fine to me too. Normally I wouldn't have bothered to make edits on it. Some I do though.

    Improve your photography skills. That's it.
    It doesn't matter which machine you use to capture images, if you practice and improve, you'll get great results from a barbie doll camera, an iPhone, or a dslr/mirrorless.
    Practice. Study. Learn. Practice.

    Good photography is a lot about good composition. Practice viewing the world differently. And take LOTS of pictures. One of the great things about digital photography is that you can take hundreds or even thousands of pictures without it "costing" you extra.
