    There were so many amazing photos it was truly humbling to see what people could create with the same (or potentially technically inferior) equipment as I have. I learnt a lot from looking at all the entries (which I'm still in the process of doing... I'm at page 68 now!). There were a lot of things people posted which I didn't know how they achieved, I would really like it if the winners could explain how they achieved what we see in the photo so we can all learn.
    I look forward to the competition next year! :grin:
    Cheers :)

    Hi Madbilly,
    I come from a painter background and am inspired by photographers who come to photography with a painter's eye. I'm especially inspired by the likes of Jeff Wall. I'm always looking for a shot that looks otherworldly, as such the natural light is the most important factor for me. I rarely take more than one shot of a scene, and I'm careful to frame it like a painter.
    My photo that won the landscape and nature category was one of those magic moments that could never be reproduced.
    I was ascending a mountain in Italy next to a waterfall. In the morning the falls were normal, but by mid-day the glacial ice had melted on top causing a torrent of milky white water to torrent out below. But the time I reached the lower levels, the waterfall was so strong that it was spraying up clouds of icy water, billowing in the late afternoon light.
    I decided not to photograph the waterfall but the clouds of icy water. The light from the sun, obscured by the clouds created a light like theatre spotlights and the roots looked like a body laying on a stage. I took 2 shots, no editing, and I knew that was the shot.

    That's my method. Subject matter is everything for me.

    Yessss. I'm more excited for this than Christmas 😂 Thanks a lot Laura.
  • I can't wait to start putting the amazing features of the Pureview to the test. I have never owned such an advanced photography device in my life. I'm really excited to start taking shots, editing raw files (wow!) and posting the results.
    Thanks again Laura for your great effort. 🤗

    Hi all again :) 

    the winners have received a private message from me asking for their personal details :) please answer asap. For the winners who participated via Instagram you should receive a message shortly as well. 

    @user15040824641434 you can see the winner entries by clicking on the >Entry< link next to each name :) 

    Best regards, 
    Laura 
    Congratulations to all the winners of this contest.♥️
    However, my opinion is in regards to the management of this contest: the winning photos should be published alongside the name of the winning photographer. It would have been a lot more professional that way.
  • Congratulations to all the winners <3

    Then you will win a prize for the fastest delivery of a phone following an HMD competition! Congrats :+1:
    Cheers :smiley:
    It would be a unique achievement...  :D
    Here in India, winners were declared on 19 August, but still no sign of prizes... And the person in-charge has not come online since past 10 days...
    Hope the processing in India is fast like the one at Global level...
    I have already written and saved a note about the new Nokia 9 PureView, to share on social media... Just waiting for the device... :p :D

    I got my Nokia 9 Pureview last week (thanks @HMD_Laura and the team at HMD). Been test driving it all week, and today had the first chance to take some nice shots with the amazing camera. 


    Lucky are you... Global community management team is doing a commendable job...
    And here, we the users from India region are still waiting for our prizes since past more than a month...
    Moreover, no body is even responding to messages and queries...

    @HMD_Laura
    please help... If you can...

    Hi all :) 

    sorry I was on sick-leave last week. Back on track again. We faced some little hiccups with shipment of the prizes to some countries but found now a way to get this sorted and will proceed with the shipment. I will keep everyone informed via PM when I have a timeline on when the prices should be received (no worries it shouldn't take that long anymore as I know you are all waiting patiently). 

    @praveenp I will be in touch with India team. 

    @Tanmoydas15 the world photography day competition is closed already. But stay tuned for other opportunities. 

    Best regards, 
    Laura 
    Mrbondrajkot786 here 🖐🏻 from india i am so much excited and eagerly waiting i hope i will get it soon ❤️ and i hope laura you are well now take care 😁 thanks
