Better Photography’s readers stop to take some stunning images with their cellphones for this month’s theme ‘View from the Window’. Here are the winners.

Winner:

Seeing Double
Rohan Mishra, Chennai

What made me shoot this: The symmetry and beautiful surroundings with just a hint of motion made this picture for me.
What I learnt: Keeping my hand steady was quite difficult. I shot multiple images to pick the sharpest one later as camera shake would ruin the picture.

Shot with: Lenovo P780

Honourable Mentions:

Swipe
Selvin Kurian, Mumbai

What made me shoot this: This was an impromptu image. The cleaner dangling on ropes, cleaning the glass walls made for a beautiful silhouette.
What I learnt: As I had only a few seconds to get the shot, timing and getting a sharp image were absolutely essential.

Rainy Day Abstracts
Amit Vakil, Chamba
What made me shoot this: I was on my way to Dharamsala when I noticed that the water droplets created an abstract pattern in combination with the trees. The design fascinated me.
What I learnt: While phones allow limited techniques, they let you concentrate on composition instead.
