    Lumia 920, no editing.

    One cold morning I was getting into a van to head to school. It had frost all over the windshield and such, so I took a picture of it. Neighbor's tree is visible in the background.

    The blue-green shade is courtesy the glass, something cars tend to have.

    Shot from Lumia 950XL
    Cropped a Macro shot and slightly enhanced the photo using the built in editing tool.

    First signs of snow in my city of Springfield IL, nearly after 8 months and winter is coming folks!!
    While walking from my campus gym to my dorm, the magical flurries started to fall down on me and I immediately clicked the shots and this macro turned up just brilliant.

    I had uploaded this picture on social networking sites only to be asked by friends which model of dslr did I purchase on blackfriday.
    More than eyes can see

    Lumia Icon (929), no editing. Rich capture.

    I was on a regular hiking trail with people that I love, and because we had decided to go in winter, the waterfall featured there was frozen over, but some of it was still flowing. So we were able to take a picture at the base of the waterfall, frozen over with ice, which is typically a view you don't get to see.

    I took this photo on my holiday to the Highlands in Scotland last summer. It's a picture taken in the city centre of Inverness of the river Ness that connects Loch Ness with the sea. It was a rare sunny summer's day :)

    Close-up of a nice cold glass of water taken with my new Lumia 950xl. Cropped and Lomo filter of Pictures Lab applied... I suddenly got thirsty after reading about the new Water & Ice photo contest, so I thought "why not a nice glass of ice cold water..." And this picture was born!

    A photo of my wife taken at Mammoth Park in Mt. Pleasant Township Pennsylvania with my Lumia 920. I may have adjusted some exposure settings with Microsoft Photo Gallery. Love the sunburst and reflected clouds.

    Today, 12/4/15, I was enjoying a cup of ice water under the warm Southern California Sun, on an 80 degree weather (some people may be hating me right now, haha), when I read the post about the "Ice and Water" contest. I leaned my water cup over and took a picture with my HTC 8xt (my 950XL hasn't been activated yet). I used the Photo Enhancer app with a touch up called "Dark side."

    Took this picture with my lumia 925 edited with creative studio.
    I thinks this photo fits this contest perfectly. The picture is a glass of ice water looking inside the cup from the top.

    This was taken at the Singapore river right after the Microsoft launch event back in July. Pretty good for night scene considered taken with a Lumia 635. I like how the lights reflecting in the water.

    This was clicked on my recent visit to Kasol in Himachal Pradesh. This is Parvati River and the pic was clicked on my Lumia 1520. The place is a hotspot for tourist and the pic was taken from a small bridge which stands above the river. The pic is totally unedited.

    My Glass of Water

    This photo was taken using a Lumia 1320, only cropped a little bit.

    So here's the story:
    One day, we were at a friend's place. It was a medium sunny afternoon, we were having a cuppa. Unfortunately, I don't drink tea or coffee so I got a glass of water instead. It was a little bit warm that day, so the friend asked me to open the blinds and the windows by the counter where I was sitting and having a drink. After I opened the blinds, my eyes were amazed with what I saw, and it was the sun's beam directly focused to my glossy glass of water, with sparkling projections on the countertop's surface.

    Turning icebricks upsidedown, we found many small sculpture of ice. This is taken with my Lumia 1520, just days before I got my lovely 950XL. Taken in Norway.
