The theme for this week’s showcase of mobile photography is dramatic skies. The photographers included in this week’s showcase have used the drama and beauty from the heavens above to inject emothion into their photos. Whether it’s the vibrant color of Clifford Pickett’s ‘Last sunset in Florida’ or the calm serenity of @Kutscher’s evening shot to the energy contained in the clouds hanging over the Scottish mountain range in Nicolas Xanthos’s photo. All photos this week illustrate how you can convey emotion and mood into your photos by paying attention to the weather conditions and the skies above.
Featured photographers this week include: Ann Hecht, Claire Taylor, Clifford Pickett, Stefan Hahn, Nicolas Xanthos, Justin Daniel Nungesser, @Kutscher, @Leej4x, @Michalfoto and @ikocarev.

‘Untitled‘ by Claire Taylor – “This photo was taken in Wales, UK. I was camping with friends in the north and the landscape was simply beautiful. I’m always on the lookout for lone trees and this one grabbed my attention immediately. I used the Hipstamatic app for both taking the photo and slight post processing. “
Last sunset in Florida
‘Last sunset in Florida‘ by Clifford Pickett – “This image was taken in the parking lot of a restaurant as I was heading into dinner with my family. It had been raining all day with but much color in the sky. As sunset approached, the sun dipped just below the cloud cover creating this beautiful low angle glow on the foreground. This type of light inversion, where the foreground is brighter than the sky only happens under these specific conditions which is rare. So I found good light (actually it found me) now just needed an interesting subject. The restaurant parking lot was less than inspiring so quickly searched around for a composition of palm trees and got down low, both to eliminate the distracting foreground elements and fill the frame with the cloudy sky providing a clean background.
Edited in Lightroom mobile, then Snapseed to bring out the color and dynamic range.”
Life Archive 543
‘Life Archive 543‘ by Stefan Hahn – “For me the daily way is the basis of good art and finding a vision and own voice in photography. So I am experimenting with several apps (Hipstamatic, Camera+, Blackie and Camera Noir, Lightroom, destressed) and my iPhone 7 plus, on the daily dog walks, searching essence in photography and in me, and what does it mean to show them on instagram. The picture was taken on my birthday with my beloved dogs in the fields where I live.”
‘Untitled‘ by Nicolas Xanthos – “I recently took a vacation to northern Scotland, specifically to pursue landscape photography, which I prefer. I finished my stay on the Isle of Skye, to hike the Quiraing, and this is where this photo was taken. The scenery was extraordinary, with these mountains unusually shaped and without trees. The photo was taken at the beginning of the hike, with a sky mixing sun and clouds. I edited it with Hipstamatic. I used the lens Jane, which illuminates the clouds without making them disappear. I also used the film Love, which gives a certain intensity to the colors. The result conveys well, I think, the fabulous and almost mythical character of this strange and magnificent landscape.”
‘Untitled‘ by @Kutscher – “Inspired by nature and perfect light: Walking through the fields at the end of a busy day accompanied by my dog, I was lucky to take this snap shot of some balloons scraping the sky. How? With my iPhone 7 Plus. Back home I did some fine tuning with Enlight and Mextures. “
