image captionCatherine Penfold-Waxman: "I took this picture with my iPhone, using the Hipstermatic app, on a flight from New York to Minneappolis. I am an avid photographer, but I enjoy the randomness of Hipstermatic. It reduces all the photographer's input down to simply being in the right place at the right time. I had no control over colour, light or focus. Yet I love this shot. The blue sky from the blue sky. It captures the unreality of flying."

image captionJack Johnson: "A hybrid skydive formation jump over Lake Elsinore, California. Taken last year when I was on holiday by Terry Clay and featuring three skydivers, my friends Chris Hampton and Cody on the top and myself hanging from their chest straps. This jump was my 400th skydive and I remember it fondly and love the picture with the lake, mountains and the crisp blue sky in the background."

image captionTed Anderson: "A late winter fog had frozen to the trees along a high road near our home in Hubbardsville, New York. When I returned with a camera the following day, the sun had come out, creating a very different atmosphere - white branches against blue skies."
