Experiment: Black and White Edition, by @city.roamer.
“I was on one of my mini-photography expeditions in Birmingham when I was walking under the Cube pictured here. An architectural marvel in its own right, the blend of metal, glass and concrete serves as a reminder of this modern city’s industrial past. Coupled here with greyish-blue tone of the evening sky, this perfectly-timed composition reminded me of why the natural and man-made are an amazing duo in photography”. Image by @mmjgraphic.

The architecture of our instadreams, captured by @siemkramer. Do you like to snap away when you're in the city too? Camera: EOS 70D | Shutter Speed: 1/80 | Aperture: f/4.0 | ISO 100
We must admit, posting sunsets is a guilty pleasure of ours! Image by @joe.ire
#CanonTip Make the use of windows, arches or other apects of your shot to add a sense of depth and atmosphere to the image or video. Image by @checkered_photography. Camera: EOS 7D | Shutter Speed: 1/80 | Aperture: f/4.5 | ISO 100
"We started to get ready for another long night of shooting, importing photos, cleaning the lenses and cameras etc. While I imported my photos from the last night I looked out of the window of the hotel and noticed how beautiful the framing of the window was, it felt like a post card moment that you would see in a travel magazine, so I grabbed one of my cameras and took this. After being back home for a week It's really become one of my favourite pictures that I've taken since starting photography."

And… relax. Is there anything better than watching the sun go with all but your camera for company? Image by @petermaynephoto
"My dog, Wallace, encourages me to get outside when I don't always want to. Just before this photo was taken the rain was coming down heavily, but then it quickly cleared and revealed this scene. I now take a camera with me in all weathers just incase of moments like these." Image by @karldavies. Camera: EOS 6D | Shutter Speed: 1/1250 | Aperture: f/4.0 | ISO 320
"Life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see". Have you been at a location before where you just *had* to get your camera out? Image by @ryanlongnecker.
#Canon48: And last but not least, we couldn't help but post @mikecleggphoto's kit shot of the EOS 6D Mark II in action, just before his timelapse challenge: "I found the 6D Mark II to be packed with lots of awesome features, and quite a few improvements on the previous 6D to make the camera even more enjoyable and easy to use. The built in time-lapse feature is next level and makes capturing this kind of content super easy!"
#Canon48: Over the last 48 hours @me_and_orla was one of the three instagrammers pushing the EOS 6D Mark II to the limit - one challenge being to test the camera in low light: "Possibly the #Canon48 challenge I felt most nervous about - shooting in low light! Fortunately the 6D Mark II made it easy, meaning I got to sit back and appreciate this magical Scottish view!"
#Canon48 Over the last 48 hours, three instagrammers have been putting the EOS 6D Mark II through it's paces in a series of challenges. We loved this shot by @jamesrelfdyer, who in this shot, tested the remote feature and took a selfie: "I've had a blast trying out the successor of my beloved Canon 6D, the all new 6D Mark II. It's integrated features are nothing short of legendary!". Make sure to check out James' behind the scenes Stories before they disappear!
Today, @me_and_orla, @jamesrelfdyer and @mikecleggphoto are going to be putting the EOS 6D Mark II to the test! We're hosting a series of challenges we've named #Canon48 and over the next 48 hours, instagrammers across Europe will be taking part in three challenges with their EOS 6D Mark II's that have been set by Canon Ambassador, @Fritz_Van_Eldik. Keep an eye on their feeds and #Canon48 to find out how they're getting on! Image of @liampea.
"I love capturing street photography as I get to see the stories behind other peoples lives. I took this from a bridge at the Barbican Centre in London looking down onto the road. I realised everywhere you go you will see some kind of sign and instruction. The 'Look Left' in this image captured my eye as you see the woman following the instruction but the man is pointing right. It made me wonder whether we are all just following instructions every day as humans..." Image by @emmypammy. #liveforthestory Camera: EOS 700D | Shutter Speed: 1/200 | Aperture: f/6.3 | ISO 100
Have you taken a shot before that on reflection, wasn't quite what it seemed? Image by @crowdedlondon. Camera: EOS 6D | Shutter Speed: 1/200 | ISO 50
