  3. Can't decide which ones out of the few I have on my PC, lost most of them when I broke my old phone, but here's a few from this year that I've always liked, no filters or anything, all just Galaxy S6 camera.

    Feel free to choose which two you guys like best.

    Hello, Seems like a fun little comp. I don't thing my piccies will win but at least I can show some off hehehe.
    I can't choose my best 2, you can see more on my instagram @starfeww but yeah, I chose these two and the reasons are detailed under each image. I focus mainly on nature and flowers.
    Taken with: Google Pixel 2

    tree flowers.jpg Taken on a trip to a nearby village right when spring time can around, beautiful flowers blossomed from this tree. I left it unedited and with no filtered. Because I liked it how it is.

    I used portrait mode on the Pixel 2 to focus on the foreground flowers and added some darkening just with googles in-app editing software - nothing special, I especially like the gradual fade of the blur effect from background to mid ground.

    Hope you had fun looking at some beautiful flowers!

    First picture of my dog Storm. He's a bi eyed Husky (one blue one brown eye) and when I can get him still enough I take pictures and think this is one of the best I've gotten from him.

    Picture of a shopping centre in my home town with a "dome" at Xmas they covered it in lights and thought it looked like an awesome photo opportunity.

    Can you please stop the upload cap nonsense!?

    How can we compete if we can't upload images???

    Razer staff, fix your servers or REMOVE size restriction.

    I can't be asked to register an account on another site as a workaround solution that Razer should be able to handle in the first place.

    I'm able to do this on OnePlus' site. That's the difference.

    Great photos everyone! I have been lurking these forums for awhile now as I started to finally put together a dedicated gaming area. They have been very helpful! Anyways, here are a few of my more recent images.

    *Edit to add descriptions*
    Both of these images were taken on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I relocated here after studying photography in Pittsburgh, PA back in 2014.

    The first image is of a pier in Nags Head, NC. I actually went this morning to photograph a surfer, but he ended up not paddling out due to the waves not being "good enough" for him. The color palette was just to incredible not to photograph and being that I was there I grabbed my equipment and left with this image.

    The second image was planned for quite some time. It's not always foggy here so when it was I took a chance and drove an hour south to bodie island light. Its intensely creepy at this location by yourself and I hope my image in captures that. The lighthouse name "Bodie" was rumored to be given due to all of the "bodies" that washed up there during the wars. It was quite an experience to photograph in this atmosphere.

    Just remove the upload restrictions. Issue resolved. How can we participate if we can't post pictures in this thread? Where are the thorough instructions for uploading content if we can't directly do it here?

    Canon Rebel T6 using the "comes with" 18-55mm coupled with the fantabulous 600EXII-RT Speedlite using an OCF color gel over the flash to really get that solid separation and subtle tint fill!
    Remember to stop and enjoy the simpler beauties even if a little cliche at this point! 45643547_354087021821858_88836901687001088_n.jpg

    This was day shoot at the beaches in maine to test my new speedlite.
    I'd brought with me (through plenty of effort *not having a camera backpack) some lights, color gels, lenses, a remote trigger (pocketwizard!), some bounce cards, my sekonic light-meter, and a fold out 7 in 1 reflector which punched me in the face and tried to run away!

    It was a beautiful day regardless that the wind was bringing in some clouds and after a while of shooting i found myself carrying all of the gear as my dearest love who volunteered to be my assistant began to collect shells with the model.

    I just can't help myself and switched to remote trigger for my speedlite, her being camera-shy has made it so i'll take just about any opportunity i can get to snag a photo for my phone or computer background.

    I held the light up with my left hand using it as my key light and aimed it down to achieve a rembrandt lighting style (after having taken many a photo of my feet to dial it in (knowing all too well there would only be one chance)
    The sun, which was further to the left and fading by some cloud cover, provided a fill to the hair light but didn't quite punch it up enough to be worthy of edits and prints.

    I was running out of hands so i slapped the sucker on autofocus and had at it, i cropped to straighten and have had her giving me that classic "Really?" look every time i log onto my pc since summer!

    I'll be looking to stick us on top of a mountain this winter to get one for a christmas card, without a doubt brandishing that same knowing expression.
