Last of the summer

‘Last of the summer’ by @_plantmyheart_ – “Shot on my Samsung Galaxy 10e at the end of summer, as the weather started to cool. I caught a warm afternoon light on my window sill and used my macro clip-on lense to capture this yellow mum. I really liked this odd angle, which made me feel like I was falling into the flower. Minimal editing, maybe some cropping and a hint of vignetting, using the Instagram software.”

Architecture and Dubai – this and that

‘Architecture and Dubai – this and that’ by @grasshopper_me – “This photo was shot on my iPhone X at the Dubai creek harbor. I visited this place on a sunset to catch up the last light, the place is so calm and serene as the creek flows silently with the skyline of Dubai glittering as a backdrop. While sun set it add mores more color and I clicked this vivid shot while a family is seen enjoying their time as the sun descends down.

Shot and edited in iPhone and graded with Lightroom. I wanted to add a pastel tone to make the picture look more aesthetica and elegant and I was glad it came out well. ”

The Artist in her Studio 2

‘The Artist in her Studio 2’ by @iphotami – “It was an artist’s open studio weekend in Berlin, and the artist asked me not to take photos. After explaining that I was friends with the artist next door, she allowed me to photograph. This is a double-exposure of the artist Eva Kreutzberger with one of her paintings. I used the Hipstamatic app’s double-exposure setting with the Florence lens and Love81 film. With Hipstamatic double-exposures, placement is always a bit of hit or miss, but this time it was perfect. I did a tiny bit of post-processing on her face with Snapseed and Superimpose. The artist loved the result.”

mini or maxi

‘mini or maxi’ by @jawdoc2 – “I was shooting on Granville Island, Vancouver one sunny day, when I came across the yellow Kids Market building.

I realized immediately that it would form a wonderful contrasting backdrop to any silhouettes walking in the shadows.

Sitting on the ground, I waited for the right moment for the silhouettes to walk into the frame.

After a short time these two ladies entered the frame wearing contrasting attire, one in a mini and one in a maxi, hence the title.

Shot on my iPhone 7 plus and edited in Snapseed.”

Untitled

‘Untitled’ by @jennagreene421 – “The shot was taken on Pensacola Beach, FL just before sunrise. I typically wake up early on vacation just to have a few quiet minutes to myself and like to take as many sunrise pictures as I can while I’m out. The Jeep just happened to pass me and I was able to capture a quick shot.

It was taken on an iPhone and I just enhanced the colors within the included camera app.”

Untitled

‘Untitled’ by @ligiafascioni – “I was at metro station and suddenly the world turned yellow because the train and sunlight. I was so delightful!

I used camera+ to improve the contrast and the Instagram filters.

This photo was taken in October 2019 at metro station Bülowstrasse, Berlin, Germany.”

Valencia, always magical

‘Valencia, always magical’ by @luiggi1905 – “I shot this photo with my iPhone 6s during a night city walk through the wonderful city of Valencia (Spain). The building is the Palacio de las Artes Reina Sofía, it is the city’s opera house. It is part of the architectural complex of La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava, a set of unique and incomparable buildings, very photogenic indeed. The photo is lightly edited with Lightroom Mobile to adjust the contrast.”

Subway and man

‘Subway and man’ by @raffaele_desantis – “The photograph was taken with a Samsung S Series, in the tube station of Naples, in Italy. The interesting contrast between the subject and the moving train inspired me. The photo was edited with the Snapseed app. ”

Untitled

‘Untitled’ by @urban_swarmer – “Three years ago, when I returned from my first trip to Hamburg in the summer, I took this photo. The train in the direction of Prague was already quite full that day, then in Berlin these two girls got on and sat down in the now full 6-seater compartment. They ate something and fed each other. Afterwards they lay on top of each other like in the picture. Since my camera was in my backpack in the luggage compartment above me, I had to capture the moment with my Nokia 8. At first I hesitated whether I should take a picture, also what the other people next to me might think, but then I decided to do so and in retrospect I am very glad I did.

I didn’t edit the picture much, I just loaded it into VSCO and edited it with the Ektachrome 100/KA1 preset because I like the strong colours.”

Sunrise glow

‘Sunrise glow’ by @vasharris – “I took the sunrise shot as sun was coming out and at the right moment the gull flew past capturing its silhouette and yellow tones of the sunrise.

I took the photo with an iPhone 12 Pro and used Snapseed for minimal editing.”

Celebrating paper straws

‘Celebrating paper straws’ by @vastumarco – “I took this shot during a summer trip while visiting Nemacolin, PA.

Every time we celebrate special moments, I like to capture the moment as a unique way. As a table decor, we had mini cokes and straw paper. I thought that was really a classic photo opportunity, mostly for the shape and colors. I love to revert the camera to create a more interesting angle. It’s pretty much a hand selfie. The app used was brushstrokes and snapseed. Back then, I did use minimal work (apps) to enhance the photos.”
