    Hello friends,

    Welcome to this month's Shot on OnePlus contest!

    I am Mohan, an ardent photography lover from Pondichery. I am a person who can go any extreme to get good photographs. In fact, photography is my life. I do photograph both in DSLR and Mobile. I love to travel Western ghats. Every time when I go to photograph, I never miss to photograph the same in my OnePlus device too. My photographs were featured for 8 times in NATGEO traveller India. Also I am one of the winner of NATGEO's Incredible India contest 2018 of the topic "Art Form". In my 8 times featured photograph in NATGEO, one of the photographs was shot on OnePlus. I am very happy and honored to host this SOOP.

    The theme for this month is:

    Anything related to golden colour can participate, such as leaves, landscapes, sunrises and sunsets etc.. Here I shared few of my photographs as reference related to the contest.







    Here are some tips for shooting:
    • PRO & HDR MODE
    As everybody say PRO mode is one of the best choice. Because you can choose the choice of the settings by yourself. Relevant to golden theme you can under expose and shoot while photographing, Interesting Silhouettes, sunrise and sunset such like shots in PRO mode. Another is HDR mode. You can control both sky and foreground with this settings. You can refer my photograph reference shared. Few of it was shot with HDR settings. Always shoot with grid lines. It will be useful to frame properly and also for cropping.​

    Post processing is equally important as taking photograph. But also should not do all the works in post processing.First we need to photograph in raw format. So we can bring a good result in the output after post process. And important thing ie we should not overdo the process. The output of the photograph must be equal while photograph it. Especially for the nature photograph.​

    I will be happy if it will be helpful. :)

    Waiting to see all the amazing entries!

    All the best! :grinning:

    How Do We Select Winners?

    The pre-selection team
    consists of: @Bouncer71 , @cdnfarmer , @hennes , @otto2 , @script , @TibiTibi , and @woSch. We check all pictures of the contest, discuss, which we think are the best, and collect them in a separate thread. Then this group of experts, plus OnePlus staff members, go in a second round through that collection and nominate the 4 or 5 best pictures of the current week. Out of this elite the final weekly winning picture gets selected. It's really a long and careful process.

    Finally, the selected picture has to get checked! Therefore it's needed to contact the person that has posted the picture, ask him or her to send in the original uncompressed file, to get the EXIF data checked. Only after that final check the winning picture can be announced in the forum. And again, it's never settle.
