    Since I've spent the past week baking in the sunshine what better theme for the latest photo contest than that. It's something that we all get to see (sometimes, at least) and can lend itself to take some stunning photos in the right place at the right time of day. You'll no doubts do better than I did, but the shot above was captured at Silverstone as the sun began to drop over the pitlane.

    So, that's the theme. Read on for the rules and regulations!

    Oh, and we've got a great prize in store this week!

    So, here's the run down for this week!

    Rules for this week's contest

    Rules are going to be as follows:

    - Picture should be taken on a Windows Phone
    - Picture must be uploaded to this contest thread
    - Tell us what apps, phone, and anything else you used to create your image
    - 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 we know how to contact the winner
    - Only ONE entry per week per person



    We've got a great prize for the winner this week. Up for grabs is a GoPro Hero (the one above.) While this model doesn't connect to your Windows Phone (or any other smartphone for that matter) it's a fantastic action camera with a ton of accessories available to make it a true go anywhere camera.

    We'll pick a winner Saturday night (July 18) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post following the contest and after that we'll contact the lucky person to arrange shipping the prize.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Well, I took this picture with the lumia 535 because I liked the view (I was in a car actually) and hoping that one day WindowsCentral will likely put a contest of it.
    Turns out, this is that day.
    Used Lumia camera. No other apps

    Taken on Nokia Lumia 1020 using Lumia Camera App, no filters, just standard settings.
    This was taken early one more morning, when I was leaving the house to go to the airport.

    - Shot with Lumia 1520 with Lumia Camera on auto settings.
    - Cropped with Lumia Creative Studio.

    This was back at the end of June. I was driving into the south end of my city and enjoyed the colours of the sunset. With my peripheral vision, I picked up my Lumia 1520 from the passenger seat, and blindly snapped a shot with the camera button. My attention had to remain on driving safely, so I had to hope that the auto settings would take a nice shot. Thanks to the 20mp camera, I was able to crop in around the sunset with Lumia Creative Studio and still retain pretty good quality.

    Hey All ! I clicked this photo at Lake Ontario on a sunny beach. After harsh canadian winters and tough spring, finally the sun was shining bright and it was great to enjoy morning on a sunny beach. The pair and beach always go hand in hand, matching blue color and bright sunlight reflected from waves inspired me to take this shot.

    Clicked on Lumia 1520 and edited in Lumia Creative Studio for basic exposure correction and applying Retro-Fade filter.

    Happy Clicking !

    I took this photo with my Lumia 920 using the old but trusted Lumia Camera during my last vacation and also the first with my girlfriend.
    As she didn't know the beach I took her there(Santa Teresita, Buenos Aires, Argentina). Almost the week was gone, we had to go back to the city the next day, and I told her that the best view we could get to remember our first vacation together was from the dawn.
    I'll never forget that moment, when she smiled to the beautiful scene.

    Santorini is well known for having the best sunset in the world: locals and tourists alike crowd the eastern shores of the volcanic island with a cold beer or cocktail and relish nature's splendour every evening. I took my wife there for her birthday and this is what her Lumia 930 Special Edition saw. I used Adobe Photoshop Express AutoFix feature, which lightened the image a tad (happy to share the original JPEG for comparison). If any of you are tempted to head to Santorini, I cannot recommend it highly enough...it really is a taste of paradise.

    I took this with my 930 a few months back on my walk to the train station one chilly morning. I used the Lumia Camera Rich Capture but otherwise no other editing has been done to it.

    I was at a skating rink on the 5th floor of a mall when I captured this shot. The other side of the rink is close to the glass windows of the mall and it offers a great view of the city, the traffic down below, and the metropolitan rail transit just above that. It was late afternoon and while I was skating around the rink, I couldn't help but stop and take some snaps of the amazing view the afternoon sun and the metropolitan skyline made-- it was truly picturesque. I think what's interesting in this snap is that aside from the beautiful silhouette made by the sun and the buildings, you can actually see sunlight diffracting from the glass windows. I hope to get more shots like this.

    To create this image, I used my ever-trustworthy Lumia 1520 and did some slight editing using the simple yet effective tool that is the Lumia Creative Studio. I hope you guys like it. :)

    So, this photo was taken somewhere in the Sahara Desert, in Morocco.
    I spent my last year studying in Hungary and had the opportunity to travel to one of the most incredible places on Earth, after over one hour on top of a camel, we reached a camp and ran to the highest place around and this is the view we had.
    This photo was taken on my Lumia 1020 using Lumia Camera app, no changes were made.

    Minor edit using Lumia Creative studio by using retro cool filter

    Taken last June 2015 in our trip in Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines.

    Its a famous tourist spot in Mt. Kiltepan because of the sea of clouds you can witness during sunrise.

    Sun shining after a violent rainfall produces a beautiful Rainbow on "Altare della patria" in Rome. My Lumia 1520 had nothing else to do than to use all the 20 mega pixel of the camera to catch such a great scenery. Small crop and a bit of contrast just to get rid of Rome pollution using Adobe Photoshop Express app and that's all. wp_20150327_18_16_23_pro.jpg

    This picture was taken on October 8, 2013 with my old Lumia 920 and WP camera app. No post processing.
    A chilly fall day at Indian Lake in Lake Orion, Michigan. The lake water was much warmer than the air creating that mystical fog on this calm morning.

    This is a photo I took on the beach in Ayia Napa, Cyprus, with my partner. Cyprus is the island of love and birthplace of Aphrodite so a heart on the beach on a romantic holiday was a perfect image.
    Although I have a Lumia 930 now, this was actually taken with a 920. Creative Studio was used to edit the hue, clarity and also focus and fade. fb_20150708_03_25_58_saved_picture.jpg

    Here is my contribution. It is taken by my trusty Lumia 920 on a sunny day in Half Moon Bay, California. We were walking out from the beach and I snapped it without looking at the phone (which I like to do). Little modifications and cropping are done using Fhotoroom.
