Wishing you a great week-end

The old Harbour


The old Harbour‘ by Ann Hecht – “Driving around in the rain. I loved the colours of the fishing boats. A touch of orange for the green and blue.

Opposite colours are always a good thing to look out for. The raindrops in focus and the boats out of focus. I put it through Snapseed to emphasis the colours and sharpen the rain.”

Untitled rain covered umbrella

Untitled rain covered umbrella‘ by Carol Haynes – “Can the pitter patter of rain be my mantra? Because I think it might just be.

I love photographing rain drops and I don’t usually use an umbrella because I find them cumbersome. But, on this day, once I was sufficiently wet and cold from not using an umbrella, I remembered my youngest has a clear one… perfect! I could try capturing the rain from the inside using the umbrella as a window.

I posted this photo as part of a 7 day black and white challenge on Instagram and Facebook recently. Although this was already a monochromatic photo I found that only a quick basic black and white edit was enough to brighten the frame.

Photographed and edited on Samsung Galaxy S7 (no flash, no tripod). Edited, in part, with SnapSeed and EyeEm apps.”

Water dissolving

Water dissolving‘ by Chas Read – “Miles of broad, flat beach and warm, bright light make for a neverending ribbon of reflection and perfect conditions for the evaporation of millions of gallons of water that result in… those clouds that trace the water’s edge along miles of broad, flat beach…

Shot in @blackieapp as a black and white original using iPhone 6s. Edited and cropped in Snapseed.”

Untitled‘ by ezpz123 – “This photo is extra special. These are my three girls and this was taken at one of my favourite beaches on my birthday. It’s difficult to get the three of them together for a photo so most of the time I have to catch them unawares! This particular beach is fantastic for capturing reflections and shadows in the water and also silhouettes. My happy place!

Photo was taken on an iPhone SE and edited in Hipstamatic. “

Sunrise at Lassing Park

Sunrise at Lassing Park‘ by Joe Le Grand – “Lassing Park is located just south of down town St. Petersburg, Florida. This cove is just off Tampa Bay and is commonly called Old SouthEast Association. The photo shoot started with an early morning coffee as I began to position myself on the shore of Lassing Park just prior to sunrise. Once the sun began to rise, several shots were taken with my iPhone 7 Plus. This one was selected and processed through several steps in Snapseed, including Structure and Sharpening in Details, then Cropped. The edit was transferred to iColorama to increase Vibrance, then back to Snapseed to enhance foreground grass using Brush: Dodge and Burn.”

Not a bad way to spend a Monday

Not a bad way to spend a Monday‘ by pennijam – “This photo was taken at lunchtime on a sunny Sydney day at one of my favourite cafes located on the end of a wharf at one of our Harbour beaches. There are always a few interesting rowing boats tied up so it’s a great place for inspiration for my 365 project which is now in its fourth year. This boat was perfectly placed for an overhead shot as it was slightly under the wharf. It was taken on an iPhone7 and edited with some minimal tuning in Snapseed.”

Dudes and Dudette enjoying their surf lesson

Dudes and Dudette enjoying their surf lesson‘ by Elaine Taylor – “This was taken in a beautiful place called Sennen Cove in Cornwall UK. For the past few Octobers we’ve been lucky enough to spend a week there with good friends. The kids love getting in the water, whatever the weather, and a surfing lesson is usually on the agenda. The weather was very cloudy/misty and the the beach was pretty much empty on this day – ideal to provide some negative space around the kids. Although the weather wasn’t great, I was able to pick out the little pops of colour in the distance.

I shot this through Hipstamatic on my iPhone7 plus (Jack London / Irom 2000)”

Just breath

Just breath‘ by Venkatesulu – “This photo belongs to an underwater series taken during two summmers in a swiming pool with family and friends. Taken with my mobile, a Sony Xperia Z3 and processed with Snapseed.

It is a personal project you can see in #sumergidaenmimundov (sumerged in my own world) in my account @venkatesulu. ”
