    We're in the middle of the early year event season right now and for many of us at Windows Central and Mobile Nations at large that means breaking out of the office and going outside. In most cases we'll avoid driving when public transport is available, so what better theme for this weeks photo contest!

    Public transport is a daily staple for many of us. It's how people get to work, school, grocery shopping, vacation, virtually anywhere we could need to go. It's also something that's pretty global, and we're looking forward to getting a little flavor of what the transportation is like where you are!


    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

    How to use Tapatalk to post images in the Windows Central forums

    We've got a handy guide for that!

    - How to use Tapatalk to post images in the Windows Central forums | Windows Central


    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
    - #PublicTransportWC

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

    OK... Just to load up on the theme.

    I'm on a water bus pulling into Rialto stop. Another water bus is just leaving Rialto stop. A third water bus is coming down the canal and is under the Rialto Bridge while three gondolas for hire and a water taxi all try to jockey for position...

    Lumia 1520.3, Nokia Camera App. No post shot editing other than file size reduction of the high res jpg in Office 2010 Picture Manager.

    Taken with a Lumia 535, no editing.
    Me and my girl were on a trip to Porto (Portugal) and this picture was taken almost accidentally. (touch screen problems couldn't unlock the phone, it was a close call since we were running to catch a train).
    Not that great, just wanted to share with you guys, since you were the ones responsible for me joining the windows phone family.

    This bridge is part of the Skytrain system in Vancouver, Canada. The trains are driverless so this is the view from the front seat.

    It was taken a long time ago on a first-generation Samsung Focus. I edited it with Nokia Creative Studio and Fantasia Painter (on a Nokia Lumia 710).

    Here's the unedited pic

    This was taken using my Lumia 1520 before I broke its screen..so lots of sweet memories are embedded in this photo..
    It was on my business trip to Intramuros, Philippines - the only place (i think) where these 'Kalesa' (historical horse riding public transport, now mostly for tourists' interests) are still for public..alongside the 'King' of Philippine public transport, the Jeep.

    Behind is the historical wall of Intramuros (in latin which means, within the walls) which was constructed more or less by the 1700s.

    Not the greatest photo, but I thought it was pretty cool.
    On the skytrain in Vancouver, BC on my way to work (you can see advertisements!). The sunrise reflected Mt.Baker shadow onto the clouds.

    Cropped and edited with Adobe Photshop Express. Shot with 1520

    I took this photo for a metro station in Dubai using my Lumia 930 and did the editing with Adobe PhotoShop express. I named it as vantage point as the angle from where I captured this photo can rarely be noticed by commuters.

    This was taken with my yellow Lumia 920 in Szeged, Hungary. Actually, this tram has been taken out of service a long time ago and it functions as bar nowadays. The photo was edited with Fotor.
