    Firstly, sincerely appreciate your enthusiastic participation! So many of you have shared with us your favorite travelling pictures. It's been a challenge for us to pick out the final five winners from so many wonderful entries. After several discussions, we decided the five winners based on how closely they adhered to contest rules and overall photo quality. Some of the entries forgot to include the basic info (1-3 photos, device name, editing software used, and whether a 3rd-party lens was used) and story details. If this was you, make sure to read the rules carefully next time.

    Congratulations to @blueskywhale @pgleseva @A1514828470617 @Upstep @Akshat Mendirata

    Thanks again for your involvement. We are really touched by the many posts. Please stay tuned for our upcoming contests!

    Hello everyone,

    Our monthly photography contest is back again. The theme of this month is travelling. For me, the best way to spend the holiday is going on a trip. Exploring our colorful world always touches me and gives me much to reflect on. We can get absorbed in stunning landscapes or come across a special local event by chance. While on a trip, we always want to capture those beautiful memories. When we look back, those meaningful moments come alive with those pictures or videos. Hence, we invite you to post travel pics to share those memorable moments in your life.

    Actually, the picture above is a good example. I shot it on my OnePlus 3T while I was travelling from Sweden to Finland. The spectacular sunrise over the Baltic Sea really left a strong impression on me. At that moment, accompanied with the gentle sea breeze, I felt so moved by the grandness of nature.

    [How to enter]
    1. Select your favorite 1-3 traveling photos 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, landscape location, editing software used, and whether a 3rd-party lens was used.
    3. You also need to share the stories behind your pictures: what’s its background? Why do you like it?
    [How this works]
    1. The picture must be taken with a OnePlus device. (We may ask you to send the original file for verification).
    2. The closing date for entries is 10 pm(EDT) on October 20. Five winners will be chosen based on the likes received and our internal staff voting. Winners will be announced on October 25.
    3. Five winners will each receive a pair of OnePlus Bullets Wireless.
    4. Only one entry per person will be considered. All content must be original.

    As always, have fun and enjoy the contest. We cannot wait to hear your trip anecdotes.

    1. The Ariel view

    The photo was taken while I'm riding across South India tamilnadu. I was riding to the south eastern tip of India called Pamban island. This picture was taken from the Pamban bridge as the boat was passing through under the bridge. I ran to the middle of the bride to capture the moment that I can get them perfectly straight under my camera

    software used - Lightroom Mobile

    2. Magical Sunrise

    One of the best sunrise I have even seen in my life and I used to capture it in a different way like a shadow play. the location was the very end point of South India which was near to srilanka which was the other side of the ocean.


    Device - OnePlus 5T
    Location - Dhanuskodi Arichalmunai

    Phone: OnePlus 5T
    Location: Kalmar, Sweden
    Editing: Snapseed
    Why?: I picked this one as my first image due to it being a really good example of the portrait mode capabilities in a hard enviroment. We were walking around in the paths near my girlfriends house. Also love how the light shines into the pathway.

    Phone: OnePlus 5T
    Location: Kalmar, Sweden
    Editing: Snapseed
    Why?: Wandering the paths. I really love the composition of this one and how the bridge leads into a overgrown field.

    Phone: OnePlus 5T
    Location: Kalmar, Sweden
    Editing: Snapseed
    Why?: I saw the house next to the Kalmar castle and had to, just had to climb onto the wall (that was full of snow up the thighs) to get this shot. It's in my opinion the most moody, perfect vintageish picture I've taken in the winter.

    PS. How was Finland, Trista? I'm from Finland myself.
    Good luck for everyone else too, and have fun shooting!

    A place you want to return to; to breathe in the fresh air; to enjoy the scenery; and to enjoy some hot tea surrounded by nature. Drove around 1700km to reach here just to be mesmerized by the beauty.

    Location : K.S.A Jeddah, Corniche. Device : Oneplus 3T App: Built-in Camera

    The story behind this one is, after work when I am really tired I go to this place to relax a bit. That days sunset was so mesmerizing that I couldn't help but click a photo.


    Location : India , Kashmir, Srinagar. Chashmeshahi Garden. Device : Oneplus 3T App: Snapchat & Snapseed.

    I was on a vacation, and it was my second day in Srinagar. It was in winters after a heavy snowfall, I stood there in awe, just looking at this amazing view of the Sun parting away the clouds.

    All images taken by the OnePlus6

    All photos taken in Hawaii.

    Image one and three were taken just down from our hotel in Waikiki on the last night of our vacation with my wife.
    Image two was taken on the north shore of Ohau, Hawaii during a long bush walk to a waterfall.

    I'm a New Zealand based arborist so I love seeing trees in other countries, sometimes it nice to look up and take in the scenery from a different perspective.

    No editing at all, just all oneplus power.

    Device Name: OnePlus 5 (Stock Cam - Auto Mode)
    Landscape Location: Gujarat, India
    Editing Software Used: Adobe Lightroom
    3rd Party Lens Used: None

    Story -- What's its background? Why do you like it? -- Me and my family were going to visit a temple and my mother said that it's a beautiful place. So, I went there with all the mobile camera lenses I had. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find good places to shoot. But, while entering a sitting area, I saw up to look at how harsh the sun was. That's when I got the idea to click this picture, an abstract picture which looks beautiful to my eyes. I clicked another picture of the same place from a different angle, but this looked better, in my opinion.

    And even though the sun is hitting straight on the camera sensor, I was glad that this shot came out to be this good. One advice I can give to anyone trying to shoot some pictures is to look above you. Yes, you can easily look around you and find some good places to shoot, but sometimes, there would be beautiful shots you'd be missing right above you.

    Look above you,
    Shivang Joshi.

    P.S: I'll come edit this post with more photos and details about them soon.

    P.S.2: I've edited the post with the story and other requirements needed to enter the contest.

    Photo Competition... Yeah

    In August we were on vacation in Scotland, so here are three of my many, many pictures i took with my OP5T, hard to decide and to select ;)

    I'm a Fan of B&W, so there must be at least two Pictures in B&W.




    1. Architecture in Glasgow (and Seagull)
    2. Eilean Donan Castle (on a rainy day)
    3. Ullapool Sunset

    In Glasgow there are many modern Buildings with mirroring/metal Facades, in the first Picture i like the straight lines, the symmetry... and of course the Seagull.

    Eilean Donan Castle might be one of the most photographed Castles... but for sure mostly in bright sunshine... it was a rainy day, so there are many shades of grey.

    We came to Ullapool in the evening, what an amazing sunset, in the Background there are the 'Summer Isles'... without words.

    OP5T stock cam & Snapseed (for B&W, horizontal adjustment ... not for 'Drama' ;)) & YaImCo

    Thanks Trista and welcome to the team. :)
    Will try to dig up some of my favorite travel pictures :)
    Good luck everyone!!!! ;)

    Here are mine:

    Me and my fiancé traveled to Warsaw over the weekend. The picture shows the Palace of Culture and Studies at night. It's just amazing how it looks at night while walking through the busy streets of Warsaw. An image that had to be a must to capture it :)
    OnePlus 6 / Warsaw / Adobe Lightroom / No 3rd party lens used

    This was also taken on the same day as the picture above only a few hours later. In Warsaw, they were opening up the "Royal Light Gardens" where you could see every tree, building and palaces lit at night. Such beauty to behold and see. :)

    This place is just a lake where me and my fiancé went to relax. Last warm days in October are spend with your loved ones where one can walk, talk, drink, laugh and get away from everyday stress. ;)

    I would like to present you these 3 moments from an adventurous trip.
    These photos were captured with Oneplus one, without extra lenses, with FV-5 in full manual mode, underexposed, with intetion for later processing direct in the phone with snapseed or psx. Final cropping and compression was done with yaimco.
    ______________________________________________ ;)
    Horseshoe Bend in Arizona
    It was a breathtaking view. Looking down and feeling the power of nature, power of wind and water. River Colorado.
    On the photo is just a half of the Horseshoe, this is not a typical crop 8D.
    Monunent Valley in Utah
    It was a calm moment after a desert storm.
    The signs of sandstorm and dust are still finely visible on the right.
    Picturesque. I felt like in a western movie.
    This is the reason why I applied a vintage filter.
    Vernal Falls in Yosemites
    The path to the Half Dome gives oportunities to see waterfalls. I was taken by this one. High and powerfull mass of water. Sunny day with rainbow. Exhausting, steep and skiddy path led me up above...
    Thank you for the contest.
