The iPhone 15 Pro camera is fantastic but I don't like it

Just look at this beautiful photo taken while walking Alice.

Alice walking on the path at a nearby park. Shot with iPhone 15 Pro.

I'm glad to have such a nice photo from our walk, but I hate the way it looks. It hurts my eyes. It looks a preschooler found the HDR knob in Lightroom.

It doesn't matter how good the iPhone cameras get, until they stop forcing "computational photography" on me, I'll never use one for anything other than visual documentation.
