Don’t forget to enjoy your journey

Don’t forget to enjoy your journey‘ by @catchthemoment_nl – “I shot the moment with my Samsung S9+. This was a French girl on her way to Amsterdam. I sat across her in the train also enjoying the moment. I loved the way she looked. She was so happy.

I cropped and edited the photo into black and white with Snapseed to create a better mood of that moment. The sunlight in her face highlighted also even better in black and white. I have also loved the graffiti on the wall in the back. ”

All Smiles

All Smiles‘ by @glo.is.me – “This was taken as I was leaving a @walkwithlocals photowalk. On my way out, I looked up and there @max_ra_portraits was in the window. He smiled, so I snapped. His friendly, warm smile pretty much summed up the whole photowalk experience for me as I always leave these photowalks all smiles.

I took this picture on my iPhoneX using portrait mode. As far as editing goes, I just play around with the edit options in the Instagram app itself such as sharpen, warmth, etc. until it pleases my eye. ”

Looking for the smile of happiness

Looking for the smile of happiness‘ by @ivantxos – “This photo was taken with an iPhone 8 plus and edited with snapseed app, just increasing the mode “hdr” by 25% and giving it 10 percent more brightness. My inspiration for the photograph is my little baby”

Bromley

Bromley‘ by @mobility_shooter – “I took the image on my commute to work. I noticed the light through the dirty window but it wasn’t until the subject stopped reading his newspaper that I thought he would make a good picture. He then seemed to become a little anxious; maybe like me he had a train to catch and the traffic had slowed right down. We’re all the same and all different.

I took it with my camera phone, an iPhone SE. I edited it in Snapseed on the next leg of my journey.”

Untitled‘ by @emmaart – “I took this photo with the Pro Camera app on my iPhone. It is a friends horse named Teddy. Initially he wasn’t too keen on me and tried to chase me off the property as I was paying more attention to his miniature horse friend Strawberry. After a couple of pats and some attention he relaxed a bit and started to show off. I think this depicts his cheeky attention seeking nature perfectly. He is so elated to have all eyes on him. I edited it lightly with Enlight Photofox. ”

Yoga not so easy with a dog sitting on your head

Yoga not so easy with a dog sitting on your head‘ by @shirleyjones246 – “Its not easy doing yoga in our house with our Jack Russell terrier Indi around. He sees it as playtime, soon as the mat comes out hes on it and he just wont leave me alone. Its pretty funny really. Just as well am not too serious about it all, We just have a bit of fun together and its very cute. This is a very rare selfie, as I just don’t do them normally. But I liked this one of him virtually sitting on my head. I think my expression says it all. This was edited in snapseed, made it black and white and upped the contrast a bit to make a more graphic image. ”

Snoooooooooooooow

Snoooooooooooooow‘ by @tinesview – “Unfortunately I am living in a region where it does not snow very often. My joy and excitement is unimaginable big when I wake up and realize snow has fallen during the night. For the past 4 years I have been sharing this feeling – with my dog. He is totally freaking out and is running like an ant-eater with his nose deep in the snow without stopping – just running and running. After one of these moments he was just sitting down next to me looking like the happiest dog in the whole universe… and I took the picture. I just edited the photo a little bit in Instagram: I improved the sharpness, increased the contrast and tried to keep the white of the snowy background as white as possible.”
