OMG... I just shot this about a week ago with my BLU Win HD LTE. Camera360 Sight. Full auto. No post shot edit.

My mother-in-law's yard reflected in her gazing orb. I was out and about snapping pics to practice with the camera on BLU. I took quite a few shots, but believe this one came out best. And best of all it is unretouched so it shows the camera module on BLU can take nice pics.

Lake Louise on November 10. Was at a conference in Canada. Sessions in the morning and free time for hiking in the afternoon. Beautiful area and very lucky with weather. Lumia 640XL - Zero editing, no special effects.

Shot this with my 1520 on my honeymoon in Maui few months ago. No editing, took it while I was resting on a hammock, it was an absolutely perfect weather. Using it as my desktop wallpaper now.

I shot this on Lumia 930! Used 6Tag's filter Lo-Fi. It was clicked while I was on trek to Khir Ganga, Parvati Valley. Though it is autumn but the greenery was all around us. There were few places where trees' yellow, red and green leaves gave beautiful view of the valley. At the end of the trek we took bath in hot spring, the temperature around fell below zero degrees Celsius. 12244642_943362055740589_7183066327208492593_o.jpg

I took that photo last spring with my Lumia 1020. I was just trying to make a macro shot of this dandelion and then this little guy came up. No edits.

I wish there was a technology to reproduce what our naked eyes could see and save what our brains render.

So here is a little piece of nature frozen in time by my 640XL.
Took the photo while taking a coffee break on a long drive.

Lumia Panorama
Lumia Creative Studio

I took this picture on a river near Pittsburgh Pa. I was driving around the area while it was raining and I saw the fog just under the tree line and thought that it would be a great photo.

The image was taken on a Lumia 925 and there was no editing done.

Had taken this picture while taking my dog for a walk on November 3rd. It was 60 degrees Fahrenheit in Wisconsin! We usually start seeing snow around this time of year! :winktongue:

Taken with my Lumia 1520 and Lumia Camera (Rich Capture)

So about a year ago I was heping my grandmother in her garden,
when all of a sudden this beautiful damselfly strikes down on the stem of an anemone right in front of me.
It was a little fresh outside, which is why it sat there for a little while, sunbathing.
I looked at it for a few moments, after which I realized that I could maybe try to make a close-up of it.
I was just in time grabbing my Phone to snag this picture:

WP_20140913_13_21_45_Pro.jpg

Notice the pterostigmata (the little orange colored segments of the wings),
these segments are a little heavier then other parts of the wing which improves wing beat
and helps increase gliding speeds.


I used a lumia 1520 to take the picture.
I might have used lumia creative studio, but honestly can't remember.
I did use the photo's app in w10 to change the lighting just a little bit.
Hope you like it.

Regards,
Giwan.

As far as I remember, no editing.

Was in the beach in a very hot summer day, when I stumbled upon this little guy. Taking a photo of him was a little bit tricky, as he was evasive, thinking we would hurt him, but the shot was quite nice at the end. The bright sun helped a lot with the quality!

I was outside and just happened to notice the interesting cloud pattern above these trees. I took this with a Nokia Lumia 900. It is unedited.
