Apps Uncovered – Sky’s the limit

The sky’s the limit in this week’s Apps Uncovered where you’ll notice in most of the images how a large part of seemingly empty space adds to the drama and feel of each photo or artwork.

Thank you to Michael Beresin for our feature image this week “biking” where the shape of the clouds sandwich the biking boy nicely between the sky and sand adding a great dynamic to the image as he whizzes by the photographer.

Biking - #COVID-19 Series

biking by Michael Beresin

Apps used: My image called “biking” was taken in Hilton Head island, SC while sitting on the beach.  As the tide moved higher and higher, people passing by got closer and closer to where I was sitting. I took this shot as a young biker passed.  It was edited with Snapseed.

Cat Whiskers
Cat Whiskers by Kent DuFault

Apps used & Backstory: I have four cats, and they are my favorite subjects for my photography. In this picture, my youngest cat, Ramona, was basking in the afternoon sunshine behind a curtain. I noticed the shadowed outline of her body, and that motivated me to get the camera ready for a photo. She then felt my presence and poked her head down to see what was going on. The variation of the backlighting on her body and whiskers was perfect. The photograph was created with an iPhone 11Pro. The processing was completed with Snapseed and Instagram. The purpose of the processing was to enhance the brightness of the whiskers against the darker window sill behind them. I also did some slight color correction.

Still standing

Still standing by tmbx (Tomaso Belloni)

Apps used: I shot with the standard camera app on an iPhone 11pro max and edited in Snapseed.
Backstory:After three months I finally went out with my camera and this square in Milan is one of my favorite spots. It is not obvious how to take new photos there, but the weather was just perfect, witha storm coming. This shot was just screaming to be taken.

At the core of it

At the core of it by tmbx (Tomaso Belloni)
Apps used: I shot with the standard camera app on an iPhone 11pro max and edited in Snapseed.
Backstory: A beautiful building in Milan. It was my first photo outing after the covid19 period and I took many photos of it. This is the last one, just as I was leaving and away from the most photographed area. I liked how the lines are all curved, a feature of the building.

Se mettre au vert by pahamel-mtl (p.a.hamel-mtl)

Apps used: iPhone8, IColorama, SuperimposeX and Distressed FX.
Backstory: In French, “getting out into the countryside” can be translated with the metaphoric “se mettre au vert” (literally “to green oneself”). As urban easing restrictions is progressing cautiously, my intent here was to emphasize the city dweller’s perception of the countryside as a lifeline. The lush green hues of the fields behind a friend’s house were accentuated using IColorama in Simplify mode. The relief-seeking city dweller was then integrated into this landscape using SuperimposeX. Finally, the entire image was embellished using Distressed FX.

Fly me to the moon (and back)

Fly me to the moon (and back) by Erik Viggh

Apps used & Backstory: The airlines are starting to fly again! An inspiring picture of airline contrails juxtaposed with the waning moon. A cropped zoom taken with the iPhone X Max. I took the photo standing on my back porch and did some further work using the Distressed FX app and sharpened with the Photoshop Express app.
