    Hi friends,

    We started a monthly photo competition earlier this year, Part 1: Best Shot of 2017, that just ended a few days ago. The final result was beyond our expectations, with more than 1600 friends replying! That why we started the Part 2 game today!

    We all snap photos of people every day. Some are photos of people who happen to be in our shot, who we cross paths with for only a second. Others photos are more intentional, of people we're familiar with or perhaps have known our whole lives. The most memorable portraits are the ones that leave us with a different feeling. Do you think you could move us with your best people photographs?

    [How to enter]
    1. Select 1-3 best photos featuring people from your "Gallery." Upload and share your photos in the comment section of this thread.
    2. Don’t forget to include the following information in your post: Device name, editing software used, and whether a 3rd-party lens was used.
    3. You also need to share the stories behind your pictures: What makes this photo different?
    [How it works]
    • The picture must be taken with a OnePlus device. (We may ask you to send the original file for verification).
    • Entries will be accepted until 10 pm EDT on Feb 23. The OnePlus team will randomly pick 6 winners. We'll announce the lucky winners on Feb 26.
    • One finalist will win a bundle containing a OnePlus Leather Messenger Bag and a Dash Car Charger. Five finalists will receive a OnePlus Laptop Sleeve and a OnePlus Bullet v2.
    • Only one entry per person will be considered. All content must be original.
    As always, have fun ! We can't wait to see your pictures and read your behind-the-scenes stories.

    Nice sunset picture taken last October, love the shadows.
    Didn't had to change much on this one, same location as the first, the sunset colors were amazing that evening. Pastel sunset I call it.
    Abandoned building near Lisbon with beautiful architecture. Was there with my girlfriend on a rainy day so the umbrella came in handy for this picture

    Pics taken with my oneplus3t

    All 3 photos taken using OnePlus 5T and edited using Snapseed. No external lens was used.

    This is the image of an elderly shopkeeper (Mr. Sadiq) I met whole exploring local alleys on my first trip to Srinagar. I was really hungry and his stock of different breads looked to good to resist. While making the purchase (each cost INR 5), he told me about how he has had this bread with tea and butter every evening his entire life. When I asked if he has any family, he replied whole featuring to his wicker basket, "This is my winter wife - kangri (a basket carrying burning coals to keep you warm)." It was my first real conversation with a Kashmiri :)

    This is my photo after completing a 2-week skiing course in Gulmarg, India. I was overjoyed at learning a new sport, meeting beautiful new people, and finally going back home after collecting tons of memories that will last me a lifetime. This click perfectly encapsulates my basking in all that happiness!

    This is Sharjeel, a very cute, though naughty boy I met in Kashmir. He's the nephew of one of my friends from the area and their favorite pasttime was to visit Nishat Garden to hang out. They took me there during sunset time and what a surprise! The gold paint was glowing as the sun set and the rays entered the intricately painted arched halls! Coupled with the unfailing symmetry of the place, it was mind blowingly beautiful. I couldn't resist framing this one!

    Hope you guys liked my clicks. Thanks OnePlus for preserving my memories so beautifully :)

    This is a German actress that I once worked with during my tv work. Shermine Shahrivar. The original pic shows her with me. But, tbh, I totally ruined the pic, so i zoomed in and took a screenshot that shows only her. Trust me, it was the right decision.

    OnePlus One, no editing only cropping.


    Another pic from tv work. She is a student model. We were making a short programme on skin, and what is under the skin. The stunning idea with the zipper is not mine tho.

    OnePlus X, no editing


    The last pic shows some young people enjoying life at a skateboard ground under a bridge in Cologne. I loved watching them, they were totally ignoring everything else while skateboarding. OnePlus One, some snapseed to make it b/w.

    All my other people's photos are private. Or selfies that no-one wants to see :)
