water dissolving‘ by @chasread – “An early morning visit to a miles-long stretch of beach on Florida’s Atlantic coast coincided with brilliant light and amazing atmospheric conditions. Broad sheets of water left by receding waves created shimmering reflections that seemed to linger for minutes at a time.

Shot on iPhone 6s using the Blackie app; edited and cropped in Snapseed. ”

Untitled‘ by @kallyklick – “It was one of those mornings where there was not a cloud in the sky. My son ran out to the beach to watch the boats head out for the day, one of his favorite activities. I captured the moment using the Hipstamatic App: Lens – Antoni, Film – Daydream, Flash – Apollo.”

Paris me fait rêver!‘ by @lollykakumani – “This was taken last year with iPhone X. I edited it in snapseed, and hipstamatic. I wanted to make it a bit dramatic so changed the color of the sky in hipstamatic using Denali hipstapak (aurora lens and midnight sun film) and double baked with Sergio lens, hackney film and Apollo flash.”

Dreaming in pink‘ by @rosiekimages – “This image was shot on an early evening walk with an iPhone XS. I saw this beautiful tree and loved how it looked with the soft curvy line of the horizon and the amazing cloud formations. I wanted the tree to stand alone so I used Touch Retouch to remove the other trees that were along the same line. I then took the image into Hipstamatic and decided on the combo Aurora NCL lens, Midnight Sun film and Apollo flash as it made the image come alive and then added the dreamy blur with the Sergio lens. I extended the beautiful colors and patterns of the sky into the foreground using the Reflect app and then finally iColorama to add a paper texture to the image.”

Untitled‘ by @shirleyjones246 – “Croome Courts wonderful Capability Brown landscape is on my doorstep so my friend and I walk there regularly with our dogs (they are in this shot in fact) I love to revisit places in different seasons weather and lighting conditions. I really like to get intimate with a place, and I never tire of photographing the same view. Croome Court gardens are wonderful and it’s a big rolling landscape, in true Capability Brown style, and as such it can be quite tricky to capture. I find myself drawn to the bridge and the amazing trees and they have there as my main subjects.

This shot was taken this January on one of those blustery days where the sky changes by the minute. It was late afternoon and the sun was getting low which brought out the golden colours in the reeds and grasses.

I edited this shot in Snapseed. Added a little HDR to bring out the sky, but only a little. Then I upped the warmth a touch to enhance the richness of the colour in the sky and the grasses. ”

Untitled‘ by @vdiazarcal – “Wonderful day in Sierra de Gredos, in the center of Spain. Sunny and not so cold. A nice walk by the ice and snow. Very beautiful views. Just walking back to the car, an amazing blue sky torn by a white line. Framing with a mobile is difficult when having a high daylight and wearing sunglasses: I couldn’t practically see the image in my screen, but the photo was there. I like minimalistic photography, and of course black and white, so I used Snapseed to crop a little and to eliminate the color and adjusting curves.”
