About two weeks ago I followed a little workshop on mobile phone photography by Marianne Hope. She showed us a few apps that she uses frequently and explained them. See more on my experiences of that day over here.
I stuck to one app sofar: Snapseed. The more I use it the more I get the hang of it and the more fun I have with it. Miksang contemplative photography is not at all about filters and making your pictures prettier that what you actually saw, but I like that I can play around with an image and I am really surprised with the enormous possibilities with these apps.
Below are some impressions of the past weeks.

Orange circle. Got a bit carried away by @colorsoftheweek, so I used a lot: saturation, exposure and contrast. Construct is not really my thing.
