    Wow, such an awesome theme for this week's contest. So many ideas come to mind. I have LOTS of photos that would fit this theme (car/trolley light trails, "action shot" and "motion focus" photos of fast-moving objects shot using Nokia's Smart Sequence mode, etc). Choosing one has been extremely difficult for me. So, I'm going to upload the one that has the best back story. :)

    This photo was taken in June 2013, even before the Nokia Camera app was launched. I used the ProShot app on my Nokia Lumia 920 to photograph this scene (I have very high regard for this app and its dev - Eddie Kezeli) . It took me two trips to this spot, on two separate nights to get a handful decent shots.

    And considering the challenges involved:
    I think this photo came out pretty well.

    Timing the photograph right was especially tough. I wanted to get light trails of cars and that of an aircraft in the same shot. Moreover, I wanted car light trails on both sides of the freeway, and not just one. I also wanted the plane's trail to begin at the left edge of the photo, instead of some random location in the middle of the photograph (that would make it look like an awkward streak in the middle of the photo). Since I had no control over traffic (both road and air), there were long periods where I was just sitting there waiting for the right combination.

    Edited using Lightroom. Full-res version available here.

    My caption for this image: Southwest, welcome to San Diego!

    First competition entry for me too.
    This was taken Christmas 2012, with my (then brand new, and still going strong!) Lumia 920.
    It's the Melbourne Town Hall, lit up with laser light, with a tram going past.

    This photo was taken with my Lumia 1020 using Nokia's Smart Cam app on our family holiday on the Gold Coast Australia.
    At the time I only had my phone for a few weeks so I thought a roller coaster would be great to test it on.

    Name: "Kid 4 Life!"

    This pictures was taken with a lumia 620 smart cam.
    Edited the colour with Nokia Creative Studio (before the update), and put together with 6tag.

    Shooted at an antique subway station here in Buenos Aires (you can see it's really vintage)
    and was funny how that kid was going side by side with his skate so many times that let me took my cell phone out and take him a lot of pictures hehehe (subway here takes some time to arribe :s) also helped me to remember that any place can be use to do whatever we enjoy most. Yeah!

    Hello, I'm new here
    in this photo is my dad.
    This photo was taken late last year after I bought my new lumia 520.
    I was lucky to get this photo, because I've only used old microsoft camera wp8 with sport scene.
    I hope you like it.
    sorry for bad English

    This is a photo of a spinning highlighter. My friend has a pentagonal shaped highlighter that has different colors on each end, orange, red, pink, green and blue. I set a manual focus but unfortunately cant get a pic with longer shutter speed because it keeps moving around when shot.

    Captured using my Lumia 520 with Nokia Camera Beta.

    Tour De France racing through the streets of London a few weeks back.
    Taken with Lumia 1020 using Smart Sequence Action shot option with all shots selected. Really captures the sense of speed that you feel when the peleton passes by.
    Without smart sequence my pictures would have been useless as I was on a slight bend so could not see the peleton approach. I just had to stick the camera out and press the button when i could hear them.

    Picture taken on the Embankment by Somerset house just 3km from the finish line.

    The beautiful fountain of Corinth, Greece. It is placed right next to the harbor and Pegasus, the mythical flying horse, is looking right into the city. In order to capture the moving waters I used the default camera of my Nokia Lumia 520 and edited with the Nokia Creative Studio app. corinth-fountain.jpg
