Not trying to step on any toes, here, but nobody else had started a contest and this format has been used successfully for a while. Charlie Brumbaugh‭ 8 months ago

Low-key sunset over water El Hondo Natural Park, Alicante; sunset with flamingos; September 2019.

Nikon D5300, 18-55mm AF-S @ 18mm, f/3.5, ISO 640, 1/160s.

At quarter of an hour before this photo was taken, I was surrounded by somewhere in the region of 300 swallows grabbing a last mouthful of insects before heading to roost. The insects that survived tried to make a meal of me, but it was worth it for a few shots like this.

Taken over Upper and Lower Whitefish Lakes, Minnesota. September 1, 2013.

Shot with a Nikon D800E with 28-300mm ƒ/3.5-5.6G ED VR at 28mm, ƒ/20, 1/30 sec, ISO 2500, using a soft graduated ND filter (which caused the green flare arcs reflecting between the filter and the front of the lens). Normally that would be enough to trash the image, but I like the green of the flare playing against the trees.

That's a cool effect, even if accidental and normally undesired. Monica Cellio‭ 8 months ago

I took this picture from my campsite at Pennsic in August 2019 at Cooper's Lake Campground in western Pennsylvania, US. Pennsic attendees mostly do medieval and renaissance recreation (to highly-varying degrees of rigor), hence the pavilions in the foreground on which you can see some banners. I took the picture with my cell phone (ZTE Axon 7); I've cropped a bit but made no other adjustments.

Taken just a few yards from my other photo, this shot from December 26, 2019 contrasts colorful streaks of dying daylight with the heavy brutalism of Lenox MARTA station and twin railroad tracks curving into the distance. Taken with my Moto X4, uncropped. May have used a live filter to enhance colors and contrast.

Something I have pictures of! The following picture of the Salesforce Tower was taken March 25, 2019 on my Moto X4. I was particularly struck by the reflection of the pink cloud fragments reflecting on the black glass bands of the skyscraper.

Cropped, and I may have used a live filter at the time to enhance the contrast, but I'm not sure.

My photo

Subject: The sun and the trees surrounding it

I took this photo when I was just walking around my house after school :)

Image specs:

I really like the image because of the silouhette effect on the trees.
