Welcome to this week’s Smartphone Picture of the Week, our online feature showcasing the best of your smartphone photography. Each week, we select and share favourite smartphone photograph taken by our online followers.
This week’s image is by Stuie Walker, taken using a Samsung Galaxy S9.
“I have featured a couple of times as picture of the week in the magazine but have only just caught on to the smartphone comp entry. I normally only take phone images for either social media posts or for reference. For this image, I didn’t know if I could achieve what I had in mind but thought if not I could go back with my main Fuji XT2.
Below is a screenshot of the image on the phone and the closest I could find to what I had in mind was an “evergreen” filter. From this I knew achieving what I was after in Lightroom would be pretty straight forward.
The image is of a local house which I have walked past for decades but it is only in winter that I would pass it in darkness. The road was recently resurfaced and the new yellow lines really made this window stand out with it`s light reflecting onto the tarmac. I am pleased with the result, even more so that I could use what I took on my phone without having to resort to another camera.”
