    Welcome Photo Enthuasiasts,


    With the start on the New Year 2022, here is a new non contest thread. The Shot on OnePlus (SoOP) contests are theme based. Therefore, this is the place to share your pictures taken with a OnePlus device that are not for a contest and to talk about photography.

    When you are posting your pictures, please remember:
    • Include the device used.
    • A bit of info about the pictures, settings etc. Feel free to tell a short story.
    • Choose your best pictures. Less is more.
    • This is not social media; it's the gathering place for photo enthusiasts.

    If you need help uploading, have a look at @TibiTibi HOWTO Upload Photos

    Current file size limit is 5MB and pixel size is 20MP. If you need to compress a picture, there are many compression apps including YaImCo which was developed by @hennes a community member for the community.

    Additional Resources
    Remember - Have fun doing photography!

    I made this picture in Miskolc, Hungary, where i was born and where i wish to live in the future. I made it with a OnePlus Nord 2 5G, with 1000 iso, 27s shutter speed, i think WB was set to 3600, and the last 2 were on auto.

    Hi @woSch I was wondering, how tenuous the difference is between shadow and reflection.

    Everyone has an opinion that is consistent with his or her perception.
    For me in your photos I only see reflections.
    In short, everything is a matter of the ability to see. That is why I consider photography an art.
    In the final analysis, it represents the author's look.
    Best regards.🤗🥰🇧🇷

    😅 Yep... my pictures in the Post you quoted are "Reflections", no doubt... therefore I wrote "Searching for Shadows..." in a nearby wood we had to hop around a lot of puddles with wonderful Reflections... and so I posted the Pictures with Reflections here in the Thread... one with Shadows I added in my Post in the "Shadows - Contest thread" accompanied by a pic with "Shadows on the Moon" 🙏🏻😀🙋🏻‍♂️

    Another tower. This is a building that was used by the coast guard. More recently was a restaurant. Now it's closed.

    very nice plant. Thanks for name. We saw such plant this summer yet it was in a climatic control environment. Still beautiful. Nice to see it in "nature".



    gorgeous pictures.
