Welcome to Through the Lens, your weekly dose of photo goodness from the creative and diverse Zerothreetwo community!

As I was thinking of what to write for this week’s post, my girlfriend asked me what was the usual theme I was looking for when selecting photos to feature. I told her that there’s no theme. As long as the photo looks good, it’s in. We’re not doing any themed selections for now, but maybe in the future.

Also, I don’t choose photos based on quality alone. Everyone has a chance to join especially for non-serious posters. Quality control comes in when the photo was just saved by the poster from other users. Sometimes I use reverse image search to double-check.

We’re not just randomly picking users. There is actual thought and effort put into this little series of ours. The goal is to provide a quality platform to feature artists.

We were serious when we said we’ll scour the hashtags to find great photos. Key takeaway is that as long as the photo looks good, it’s in. And it’s tagged with #032igers 😉

This is the last batch for August Photo of the Month selections. We’ll announce the winner next Saturday, September 5th, together with that week’s new selection.

Here are this week’s artists:

"Overcoming fears: just take a step, look up and shout 'thank You for being my great companion'. Then cry; feel His blessings. Never ask, accept all of His plans. "
