Watch the weather change
‘Watch the weather change‘ by austerity_blues – “I took this photo during a walk at one of the southern suburbs of Athens, Greece. I saw this man standing there for quite a long time and I immediately knew that he would make a great subject for a photo, combined with the stunning scenery. Most of my compositions are usually finalised after experimenting during the editing process but on this rare occasion I had imagined the end result before even taking the photo!
I took the photo with the native camera app of my iPhone 6s and after some minimal cropping I applied a filter with the Hipstamatic app and that’s about it! I have a kind of punk attitude regarding the editing and I tend to not over analyze it cause it destroys the fun for me! ”
‘Untitled‘ by bibimyhuong – “I took it when I went to the museum with my friends. This place was so great with beautiful and miraculous architecture. I walked around this place and I saw him. I think that he was a guard officer…”
Follow the leader
‘Follow the leader‘ by Laurence Bouchard – “‘Follow the leader’ was shot at the Tokyo Metropolitan Building (also known as Tocho). It was designed by architect Kenzo Tange in 1990 and looks a bit like a giant gothic cathedral. It’s an incredible building and a great place to spend a few hours shooting..
One sunny afternoon I went there and it has this great vantage point overlooking the entrance with a beautifully tiled floor. I’d only been there a short while when this couple – a guy in a hat and a girl with a black and white striped umbrella started walking across. I took a few shots of them passing by. Later I edited this shot in Snapseed – cropping the image and adding a bit more contrast to exaggerate the shadows.”
Paint it Black
‘Paint it Black‘ by Mark Fearnley – “I’m a massive fan of hats, especially the Trilby, which I wear all the time. In this shot I was catching the tube home from Tower Hill when I saw this guy coming down the steps. I couldn’t believe how cool he looked in his black Trilby and long black mac, just my sort of subject, so I snapped away with the iPhone. I loved the result, with the lines of the steps and the silhouette.
To finish the image I edited it in Snapseed, increasing the contrast and silhouetting to give a strong dark mood, which is part of my photography style.”
I believe I can fly
‘I believe I can fly‘ by Niels Brunelli – “This is my little girl, Eva. On vacation in Denmark (I’ve got some relatives there), I went on a cycling tour on a warm afternoon in the Danish countryside with Eva and her oldest sister. After feeding some cows and petting some goats we found a playground near a camping site. She couldn’t stop hopping around on this very big balloon like cushion half inflated with air. Eva was happy, I was happy, the sky was photogenic… impossible not to take a picture (using Hipstamatic app with the combo Jane/BlackKeys Supergrain).”
Trop belle cette photo en BNW ou en couleur c’est splendide
‘Trop belle cette photo en BNW ou en couleur c’est splendide‘ by catsburner – “This photo was taken with my iPhone 6+, in Marseille, the MUCEM. The MUCEM is a very closed place but very open at the same time, many lines of flight, a lot of shadows and lights. I asked my son to run, as if to chase shadows and lights .”

‘Untitled‘ by Luis M D Rodrigues – “I took it during my vacation time in Galicia at Cies islands, with my family.
The kid lying in the sand is my oldest son, MIGUEL who is 9 years old. It was an interesting thing the ‘X’ he was doing with his body.”
