No diving in the shallow end
‘No diving in the shallow end‘ by Michael Kistler – “I shot this image right after a huge rainstorm in Tokyo so there was a lot of standing water. In terms of composition, it was really just a matter of waiting for someone to pass closely enough to the puddle so I could position myself to get the shot I wanted. I edited the image in Snapseed, using both the drama and grunge functions but removing any extraneous texture. I’m a big fan of inverted reflections so I gave the image a flip before cropping and posting to Instagram.”
‘Untitled‘ by Jan Stransky – “All shots were taken during one day. I’ve got a special sense which looks at every hidden window or glass, to search for reflections and silhouettes. I mean it is a special sense in real time. All shots – are without multi exposure, just glass and reflections. I used an Iphone 4s with Hipstamatic, and as I say without manipulation and finishing by cropping, as you may see.”
‘Untitled‘ by Jan Stransky
‘Untitled‘ by shinnya umetsu – “I wanted to make a simple image with my recent favorite, Stackables App. The texture is using Stackables. It’s a good texture app. I blended the shadow play photograph which I photographed before in Blender, Filterstorm. I added the flower element to one image and added a story. Each part adjustment uses Snapseed.”

Lines Black And White Minimalism
‘Lines Black And White Minimalism‘ by Lars Wegas – “I took it last weekend at the ever-changing Berlin Instameet at the TV Tower at Alexanderplatz. The theme of the photo walk was street photography.
I took and processed the image only with my iPhone 5. First I used skrwt to straighten the lines and for cropping. Then I used snap seed for the initial black and white editing, like adding contrast, desaturation, adding the vignette and grain. For the final step i used the curves tool in Filterstorm to get the right color tones.
I love minimalistic and symmetric Photos with a bit of disorder. Many of my photos are dark with a lot of empty space. I like this photo because of the man and his shadow and that he is walking a bit skew over the lines.”
Grand Canal Dock, Dublin
‘Grand Canal Dock, Dublin‘ by myby_one – “This photo was taken on a sunny day during a walk with my lovely wife in a nice part of Dublin city. I have put my iPhone 5s on a glossy bench and used native camera app with HDR option set to “on” to capture it. Processed in PS Express and Noir”
