The theme for the last Mobiography smartphone photo challenge was ‘Nature’. For this challenge the Mobiography community was asked to think about sharing their best nature inspired photos.

The theme of this week’s photo challenge is ‘Reflections’. For the challenge think about sharing your best mobile photos of reflections. Think about capturing the reflections you find in water, in windows, on shiny floor or in puddles. Think about using reflections to capture the beauty of a stunning landscape scene or the abstractness of layered reflections in glass.

To enter the challenge simply start sharing your best images on the theme of ‘Reflections’ that were taken and edited with a smartphone by using the hashtag #mobiography_challenge_80 on Instagram.

The best ones will be featured in the next photo challenge showcase, so get sharing now.

Untitled‘ by @bodneyboo – “A treat for an early summer holiday week on the west coast of Scotland – wonderful morning fog. A magical couple of hours before the sun broke through. This tree was just behind the cottage where we were staying. I hadn’t really noticed it before the fog showed it off to perfection. Snapped with my iPhone 8 and edited using the Mextures app.”

Tis the season!

Peony beauty‘ by @lydiacassatt – “I’ve been photographing peonies for years. I wait for them all year and find them to be the most amazing and exciting flower to photograph. They are beautiful in all the stages of their bloom.

This year, I put together two series. This one was taken in the Hipstamatic app. The lense is Müller, the film is Love 81 and the flash is Jolly Rainbo2X.

I wanted to capture the elegant forms but also wanted some texture to frame the flowers. I played around in the Hipstamatic editing suite to create a more painterly photograph. This series can be seen on my Flickr account at Lydia Cassatt. The album is Peony Beauty.”

Untitled‘ by @mariko_klug – “It is summer in Germany and the grain on the fields is almost ripe for harvest. I like to photograph grain, especially barley, because it is very delicate and I like its colour in the different seasons, refreshing green in spring and bright golden in summer.

I walked past this barley field and noticed a single poppy and liked the contrast between the dark cloudy sky, the golden barley and the small red poppy flower. The photo was taken with an iPhone X and edited with Snapseed.”

Such a beautiful Dahlia!

They are small and face down to the ground so I was on my knees and elbows to get this macro shot from the ground up. Small edits in Snapseed and Lightroom. ”

Lovely cows‘ by @scavix – “I was walking with my family on the “Path of the mills” in Trentino Alto Adige. The only sound was our voices and I saw this group of cows eating grass. I really liked their positions and the background created by montains and trees so I just took the photo.

The photo was taken with an iPhoneX and edited with Snapseed adding a little of HDR and a light glow filter. ”

Untitled‘ by @sunflowerof21 – “This shot of my favourite flower was the first image I had posted on my sunflowerof21 account for quite a few months. I wanted to share something bright and cheerful, as a thank you to followers who had stuck with me, despite the lack of posts from me.

Shot and edited through Hipstamatic on an iPhoneX. I applied one of my favourite Hipstamatic combos (Beard/Irom 2000), cropped the image and enhanced the colour and structure.”
