Rather Dashing Dash

This old Buick gives the driver a pretty impressive automotive experience. No obscure flashing LED lights here!
With this image I played around with a few settings in the toolbox of VSCOcam (rather than applying any of the many filter combos). I haven't used this app since a much earlier version was available and was impressed.

Looking South

Twilight is such a magical time for photography.
This image, from Wellington's Mt Victoria, was given a wee boost in saturation and contrast with the app Snapseed.

The Approach

Stalking planes at the end of an airport can be a lot of fun, and turn up some images that can be quite different from most day to day scenes.
I used the iPhoto app to straighten and crop this image, plus give a vignette effect.

Airport scene

An early morning trip to the airport was a good opportunity to shove the iPhone through a gap in the security fence.
The water effect and some filtration was done with an app called Reflection. As with some of the free photography apps available, this one only seems to save a fairly low-res copy of the edited image.

Without any scale reference this could be a courtyard... or the top of a table (which is what it is).
The image was put through the hoops with Instagram - it's surprising how addictive it can be when you're part of the social network of photo sharing.
