    The past couple of weeks our weekly photo contests have taken on some quite broad themes, but this week we're going to try something a little different. We're focusing on one specific effect, and that's Tilt Shift. You may know it best as the effect that can turn city scenes into appearing to be miniature villages. By changing the depth of field you can create some stunning effects.

    So, it's going to test your editing as well as your photo taking. The Lumia Creative Studio is one of a number of apps that will help you produce the effect, which I did up top with the image of a train platform taken on my Lumia 830.


    Rules are going to be just like last week. Here they are:

    - Picture must be taken with a Windows Phone
    - Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread (linked below)
    - You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software or apps you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine, this is art
    - Feel free to add a little back story, we want to know how the picture came to be
    - You must have used a valid email address to register here at Windows Central, so I know how to contact the winner
    - Only ONE entry per week per person

    We've got a handy guide for that!

    We're going to continue our social sharing of entries. Share any pictures you take for the contest on Instagram, Twitter and Fhotoroom using the following hashtags. It's a fun way to at a glance check out your competition and get inspiration. Plus we're building a community of Windows Phone mobile photographers!

    Here's how it looks this week.

    - #WCpc
    - #TiltShifttWC

    This doesn't count as your entry; it's just a fun way to track the photos on social media. Your entry still needs to be in the forums!


    One winner will get a $25 gift card to the Windows Phone Store. You can use it to buy apps and games in the Windows Phone Store, Windows Store or Xbox Store.

    We'll pick a winner Tuesday night (February 24) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the contest next week.

    This was taken with my Lumia 925 last year when Huey Lewis & The News were playing after a Mets game. Edited with Lumia Creative Studio for the tilt-shift effect and paint.net was used for everything else.

    This image was taken from the 47th floor in Carlton Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. Using my Lumia 1520 and some editing in Camera360 Sight, I managed to capture this shot just as the rain started coming down in the distance.

    Nokia Lumia 920, Tughlaqabad Fort, New Delhi.
    Added tilt shift effect with Creative Studio(not remember actually)
    Me and my gf were all messed up in our minds with our jobs at that time and needed some quick peace, soothing, refreshing time together somewhere away from the city. This place made us feel light.

    Thanks. Now I know how to call these kind of pictures.
    Tilt Shift

    I got Bing as my lock screen app to get daily pictures.
    One day I got this on my lock screen. And I loved it so much.
    It just looks like a miniature theme park.
    And I wanted to know how to make such photos. (it should be an option in the settings, right)
    So I made a screenshot of it. And someday I would ask my friends how to do this.

    This photo was shot using Lumia 1020 at Singapore Zoo, today (19 Feb 2015) and when I returned back home, I saw this thread for this week's contest.

    This is one of the rare tiger species in the world, the white tiger. They are almost extinct.

    I have used Fotor app on Windows 10 Technical Preview on my Macbook to edit with a Radial Tilt-Shift.
