    I'm on a boat! Well, not really, but you might be. This week we're going to go out and capture some boats for our weekly photo contest. Those boats don't have to be in the middle of the Pacific, as you can see the image above here is on dry land. Just go find a boat and take a cool picture with your Windows Phone.


    Boats! Toy boats. Tug boats. Rowboats. Big boats. Small boats. Blue boats. Pink boats. Doesn't matter. Just find a boat and take a great picture!
    The above photo at the top of this post is from the Lumia 925. Saturation upped a little bit and the image cropped for the site.


    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 Phone Central, so I know how to contact the winner
    • Only ONE entry per week per person


    We're going to continue our social experiment from last week. 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
    • #BoatWC

    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 (October 28) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the contest next week.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Windward mark rounding and spinnaker set for the 2014 J24 North American Championship in Marion, MA. Taken with LUMIA 1020 while on board a Tartan 372....OIS helped big time in the light chop. This magnificent device also took a tremendous "Ice Bucket Challenge" HD vid of me moments after this shot :-)

    A shot of the oil ship Ivy Express squeezing through the Panama Canal. I took this with my Lumia 521 last April while on a trip to Panama.

    Early this week I was staying with my family in a campervan on the waterfront at the harbour of Oamaru in the South Island of New Zealand when I woke up early and decided to go for a walk shortly after sunrise. This photo was taken while I was on that walk. I have a Nokia Lumia 1520 Windows Phone and used one of the filters on the Instagram Beta app to increase the saturation slightly. The photo is cropped square to fit the Instagram format.

    This was taken at Darling Harbour Sydney.

    I love how the boat sailed slowly leaving a water trail with sunset in the background

    While on vacation, we stopped for coffee in Llwaco Washington. This beast was in a field by the coffee shop. My feet got soaked while taking this picture! Taken with Lumia 925. Edited with Adobe PhotoShop Express.

    Lumia 928, edited with Windows 8.1 Photo Editor to adjust contrast and saturation.

    This was a photo of the ferry at Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, WA. I woke up early that morning to walk and take photos of the harbor. The composition of this photo somehow intrigued me because of the peek of rocks at the bottom. It provided a sense of grounding to the ferry and water.

    Taken with my L521 (poor pitiful camera), added a Vivid Filter in Creative Studio, Reduced a bit of the Noise and added a HDR Filter in Photoshop CS6.

    Taken along Lakefront\West End New Orleans last fall on one of mine and my daughters 20 mile bike rides we take regularly (though at going on 5 she is getting much tougher to pull in her Bike Trailer, LOL).

    This was taken with a Lumia 1020 during a trip to Cape Clear Island just outside of Baltimore in Cork, Ireland. Only an Instagram filter and crop were used to alter the image.
