Weekly Mobile Photography Theme #Christmas

Weekly Theme #Christmas

Last weeks mobile photography theme was #Christmas. We received photos ranging from trees to ornaments and of course the special floating Christmas tree in Geelong, Australia.

Each week the Better Mobile Photos Community Facebook group hosts a weekly photography theme inviting members to share mobile phone photos, techniques, tips, favourite apps and editing techniques. It is a fun, supportive and social community, specifically for Android and iPhone photographers of all levels.

The winners (#PeoplesChoice) are determined by the number of likes and comments received from the group. Below, you will see last weeks winning entries together with some other amazing contributions.

Daniel’s photo at The Corn Exchnage in Leeds, ticks so many boxes.

  • It is symmetrical offering a lovely balance
  • The two staircases frame the Christmas tree
  • There are lines everywhere and none of them a purely vertical or horizontal cutting the photo in half. These lines flow around the photo encouraging us to explore in a circular motion
  • There is so much detail in all that activity. It draws you into multiple stories occurring in the one image.

Marcia’s photo is the famous floating Christmas tree in Geelong, Australia.

There were a few photos of this tree submitted this week. I think we all liked and commented on this one most because of the colour and sparkling reflection on the water. The amount of detail captured on this photo is quite impressive.

As we know, one of the difficulties of the Smartphone camera is captured detail at a distance. Some mobile photo editing no doubt brought helped bring the detail back into the original.
