    As you said... Magic!! :D

    The ball was originally a keyring, it broke so there was a hole left. I used a bit(s) of blu-tack and stickied a piece of wire. After many falls, holes on the floor, and photos... This one finally convinced me. And I made disappear the wire in the edition :D

    Thank you Moshe, I love how you described your reasons that are precisely why I took this photo!! All my best wishes for you, really hope you win the hoodie!

    And this time we lead with speed.

    So sit on your fastest bike available and learn, that the OnePlus 8 will still be faster.

    Having the opportunity to be involved in the OnePlus 8 series launch in a online format is really exciting. When asked, I gladly accepted. Now the trick was getting the hoodie and taking pictures. There were limited "warm"days (6°C) and no blue skies. It was cold so I wore thick coveralls, three shirts, tuque and boots. It was snowing and cold. Good opportunity to show case the global aspects of this community. The exciting part is still being able to help AND to have some of my family involved in this event.

    Time for a coffee or water....

    Now the phones.... The tag line for 2020 is Lead with speed. Hmm that got me curious .. "what that would look like?" Its said to have 120mHz screen. Sounds even more lightening speed than my OP 6. There are interesting rumours. Thus in 14 days we get to find out what the new Series will offer.

    In the meantime, here is a virtual high five welcoming you to the new series launch..... yeah.

    Every since @dsmonteiro said that I could be a part of the teasing campaign I was really excited!
    It's a difficult situation out there, it's unfortunate that the conditions are not favourable for the community to get together and celebrate the unveiling of the newest addition to the Never Settle family.
    I always look forward to launch events because it is an opportunity to witness the power, enthusiasm and energy of the community.

    Well, this teasing campaign just proved that the community does not necessarily need to be together to celebrate and have fun. I see people from all over the world donning these amazing hoodies and gearing up for the final reveal and I am more than glad to be a part of this amazing campaign!

    The Indian community members have experienced some setbacks and many of them have not been able to receive the hoodies due to the lockdown. However, I will update my post once I receive it. I'm really excited to see what OnePlus has been working on and I cannot wait to Lead with Speed!

    We will hopefully, get a body inside this hoodies soon, but until then, OnePlus 8 is coming ;)

    OnePlus has lived up to its motto and it is teasing the 8 series together with the community!!

    That's a great idea! I talked a bit(s) about it in my latest pill, but I really enjoy them and I love trying to figure out how those "magic tricks" were done in photos I see... I might start working on it ;)
    Thank you again!!

    EFFORT

    WhatsApp Image 2020-03-31 at 7.23.51 PM.jpeg
    @OALEXANDER
    i pretty much know how much this man ha gone through to take this pic and edit.we have been in constant touch .He literally had no one take this pic and edit it for him.In the end of the day TUTORIALS and SELFTIMER saved my man

    LIGHTING

    @Aishy.
    No words mate I prolly think this is been the best for lighting ,edit ,character and pose
    WhatsApp Image 2020-03-31 at 8.14.04 PM.jpeg
    @thecursedchild
    wow man .Seems like we have company and the competition is going to get heated in the next 24 hrs.PADATHE PUTHRAN is what i will name which literally translates to Son of Paddy Fields.Ue edit and lighting is been lit no doubt

    POSING
    WhatsApp Image 2020-03-31 at 6.34.19 PM (2).jpeg
    @rafastav
    This coz our lady has the best pose taking all the golden rays of the sun .Enjoying things in her own way

    COOLNESS

    WhatsApp Image 2020-03-31 at 6.34.19 PM (1).jpeg
    @Dresa91
    This because our man is so cool .He never tries much but did stand out coz of the writing he had for the post.That was brillinat and at the end of the day giving credit to the person behind.I hope this was the only post which did thank then person behind the camera

    VERDICT as of 613#

    My final verdict for now will be @Aishy. cos he is made use of both light pose and the edit looks far better than the 613 posts i've come across.well everyone has a different eye and that's the reason it is too vast. To me this photo conveys a lot because you have an emotional attachment to it. I like to go with this pic based on why it is great according to the rules of composition and lighting aspects. the photo nearly instantaneously gives you the three level of perception viz emotion of the brand psychology and intellectual.That pic deserves a hand down any day and am pretty sure this pic is hard to beat unless someone comes up with a miracle.The mask did add on a lot to the pic like a suspense that is to revealed. .........Cheers mate

    I just love this one. We can see the face but not to that extent that it is clear enough to exactly see the details. Similar to OnePlus 8, we know the specs (roughly from the leaks), but not detailed.

    Tbh, I liked all of them... But there is no comparison when you see a doggo wearing the hoodie! So its obvious that @SoniaB is the one... ;)

    That mask along with that hoodie is just awesome!!!

    Kudos to the photographer!!! You look great in that!!! :)

    You lucky girl... You forgot the shadow... :(

    Thank you for sharing that doggo's image!!! o_O
