A Gate on the Lake
I came across this metal framed gate next to a lake and I took, if I dare say so myself, a pretty epic snapshot.
I'm not usually a big fan of black and white, I mean, I am actually a fan but I struggle with using it for my own pictures. This one however was begging for some extra drama!
These images were shot and edited on a smartphone and I am quite amazed about the results I can get with that. Sure, this is far from what a DSLR and some proper photoshopping can do, but it also took only a fraction of the time and effort.
It's a mid-range android phone, a Moto G7, nothing fancy whatsoever, all the magic actually happens with some AI trickery inside the Google GCam mod and the Snapseed image editing app, also made by Google.
You probably want to see what the unedited picture looks like next to what half an hour of dabbling around makes from it? Here you go:
A bit of perspective tilt, some HDR stretching and a few clone-stamps later, just add a slight vignette and we're done.
Should I get an instagram account?
