    Default The Photo-Thread

    Hi, in this thread you can post your own photos.

    The photos should be no selfies as for selfies the "Say Cheese"-Thread already exists.

    I start with two snapshots, which were taken from me at the Balduinbrücke, Koblenz and made at nearly the same time at 7:30 am on the 16th January and the 13th February.

    I'm impressed by the sunrise one! I've always failed miserably to get colour in the sky without making everything else a silhouette, what are you snapping with?

    I love the sunrise but I think the night time one would show better with a longer exposure time.

    Those are fantastic shots. Thanks for sharing! Very serene. People two decades ago using a Blackberry, before the 2007 release of iPhones, would have never imagined a smartphone with such a high quality lens.

    Here's a few of my shots, they're just taken with a Samsung Galaxy A50 phone. No idea why the size of each image differs so much.

    The docks, Hobart

    I am shocked that those are cell phone photos, honestly. My iPhone 5s can barely take a picture

    I was planning to visit Coblence, but then the coronavirus pandemic happened. I use my Huawei phone to take pictures, because I want to support the Politburo's efforts to overthrow our liberal democracy, so my best photos is when my camera suddenly decides to depict sunsets in a surprisingly high resolution:
    Spoiler for Tubingue

    Spoiler for Random sunset near anonymous water body

    Spoiler for Meuse train station

    Spoiler for Casino in Sarreguemines

    Spoiler for Brühl Palace near Cologne
