The Lake

The Lake‘ by @soulkitchen – “My parents live on the lake and when I visit them at the weekend I often take a ferry ride after lunch. This picture was taken with my iPhone X during one of my solitary tours. The windows that afternoon were crossed by a beautiful light and the woman seemed to live in another reality, surrounded by the blue of the lake and the seats. edit: snapseed (vintage filter)”

Blue

Blue‘ by @alice1280 – “This was one of the days when a little mist adds a little bit of magic. I decided to follow the rule of thirds with this one. I cropped the original image until had the little man and the horizon in the right place. I made some adjustments in the Instagram app to make the blue more pronounced. No filter”

Perfect day for a lookup into the blue

Perfect day for a lookup into the blue‘ by @detailsofberlin – “I was out for a coffee with my best friend and after that we picked up her son from a birthday party and we passed this backyard and luckily I looked up. It was one of the first spring days in Berlin. During editing I thought about adding a plane to the sky, but I thought it’s good as it is. Taken with my iPhone X, edited in Enlight and VSCO.”

The Daydreamer

The Daydreamer‘ by @ils_photo – “This was taken in the Szechenyi Spa in Budapest, Hungary which is a very popular historic bathhouse, especially during cold winter days. This guy dozing off caught my eye as he perfectly illustrated the relaxing atmosphere of the place. The photo was taken using an iPhone 8 Plus and some minor editing such as cropping a clarity has been done by Snapseed.”

A dream come true… Chefchouen

A dream come true…Chefchouen‘ by @iphonecameragirl – “Awed by the blue city of Chefchaouen, as I walked through the streets I looked down and there was this scene.. just snapped… no edit… it is this blue! Shot on an iPhone 8 Plus.”

Untitled

Untitled‘ by @itha_mar – “I love going to parks for a walk. On one of those walks I saw a flower that captured my attention. It was small and very beautiful so I decided take a picture of it. I always carry my macro lens with me so I’m always ready take some pictures. You never know when you’ll find beautiful things. I used an iPhone X with Halide app and the 2.8X HD macro lens from Dckina and I edited it using TouchRetouch and Instagram editing tools.”

Untitled

Untitled‘ by @joseeh – “I was driving down a Montreal street in winter when it suddenly started to snow. The snowflakes were gloriously fluffy and large, so I pulled over to enjoy the moment. I was so struck by the beauty of this natural phenomenon as seen through my window that I began shooting. I used Snapseed to tweak the image and enhance its’ blue tones and it was captured with my iPhone X.”

I want to wake up, in a city that doesn’t sleep and find I’m king of the hill, top of the heap

I want to wake up, in a city that doesn’t sleep, find I’m king of the hill, top of the heap‘ by @keikis.and_.me – “This photo was taken the night before I had left for a work trip to the East Coast. My son was sad and said he’d wished he could go and I asked, “well, where do you want to be?” Most of my photos are inspired by wishes and dreams from my kids. Always shot with my trusty Samsung Galaxy S8 and given some love with the Snapseed app.”

Cornish Colour

Cornish Colour‘ by @shirleyjones246 – “This photograph was taken in Falmouth, Cornwall in the UK. It was a glorious summers day and we were down there to watch our daughter perform. It was a happy day and I felt the flowers reflected our mood at the time.

I love the colours together and I particularly liked the suns ray shooting across the frame. I am always drawn to textures and the texture of the wall was just beautiful. I shot this on my iPhone SE as I do all my photographs. I edited  this in Snapseed. Using a bit of Drama to enhance the texture of the wall, and the ray of light. This removes some saturation, so I put a bit of saturation back in, that was it really. Just a happy detail from a happy day.”

Abstract reflections

Abstract reflections‘ by @pennijam – “The photo is a reflection of two of the Barangaroo office towers. Barangaroo is Sydney’s newest precinct and provides a wealth of photographic opportunities. The photo was taken on my iPhoneX with minimal edits in Snapseed. ”

Orphan Blue

Orphan Blue‘ by @penshoots – “I have a strong attraction to colour, especially the colour blue. My love of minimalism is always correlated to colour and when I can find both in the same frame it’s exciting for me. So this big box store wall on the outskirts of Toronto, Canada was the perfect choice. I went back twice at different times in the morning to ensure that the light was hitting the wall in the right way. I knew that there needed to be a subject – inanimate or otherwise – in front of it to make the shot even more appealing, so after walking around the building until I found something of interest on that second visit, this cart was everything. I chose the title as even inanimate things can evoke a visceral reaction at times. Tweaks in Photoshop were simple apart from contrast, ie. removing the lines in the wall to keep the tone of the blue consistent and to erase the distraction of the linear perspective as well. This was shot with my iPhone 8 Plus.”

There’s always a reason to smile

There’s always a reason to smile‘ by @rawsdeb – “This is a picture I caught of my granddaughter peeking through a hole at the playground. It was taken on iPhone XS Max and edited in Snapseed.”

Shapes

Shapes‘ by @the.r.a.b.b.i.t – “As someone who always looks for a pattern in objects; shapes fascinate me especially when kept organised. This photograph was inspired by that fascination. The symmetry, the uniformity and the orderliness is clearly visible in the photograph. It was taken from an iPhone 8 plus at a food court in one of the leading Shopping malls of Colombo, Sri Lanka. The photograph was edited using the Lightroom Mobile App.”

Close to me

Close to me‘ by @venkatesulu – “This Pic is taking with a Sony Xperia z3 and edited with Snapseed. It belong to a underwater series called #sumergidaenmimundov, mostly taking under water, in a swimming pool. ”
