Microsoft announces winners of festive holiday photo competition
The Windows Phone team has announced on the official blog the winners of its festive holiday photo competition. The team asked consumers to shoot some photos using a Windows Phone and send in the results. So which photo won the contest? Feast your eyes on the image above, captured by Christian Schlör on his Lumia 920 (with a little help from the Fhotoroom app).
Taken in Austria, Christian manages to capture the spirit of the festive season with snow-covered buildings and the beautiful effect of tilt-shift.
"This is my 'Happy Holiday Picture' It is shot with my Lumia 920, and edited with a simple tilt shift effect in the Fhotoroom app. This was on the morning of the 27.12.2012, my 40th birthday, and a great opening for a beautiful day. I´m from Germany and spend my Holidays with Friends in Serfaus (Austria), and this is what you see here."
There are a number of other entries highlighted in the blog post who have been branded winners also, with some superb photos sporting differentiating effects and results.
