We all love to pretend to be professional photographers taking photos with our smartphones.
Imagine how it would feel when one of the world's biggest tech companies think your photo is good enough to be promoted.
Photo taken during vacation
That euphoric moment happened to local photographer Muhammad Faris Danial Mohd Faizal, whose gorgeous photo was reposted by Apple on their official Instagram page for all to see.
The Star Online
reported that the image was taken at a paddy field in Sabak Bernam, Selangor.
The 19-year-old told the news portal that he captured the photo on his iPhone XR during a family vacation.
Muhammad Faris said he felt surpised and overwhelmed when Apple e-mailed him on 15 September, saying that they will be reposting his photo on their Instagram page which currently has 24 million followers.
“Many people have said that the sunset in Sabak Bernam is beautiful. While I was there, I saw some potential for an interesting photo at around 6.30 in the evening,” he was quoted as saying.
Muhammad Faris hoped that he can convey the calm atmosphere of life outside a metropolis with his picture.
“You could hear the wind blow through this paddy field.
“It was relaxing to hear the birds chirping and frogs croaking, an entirely different environment than I’m used to in the city,” he said in Apple’s caption.
Now it makes us feel like going to a paddy field somewhere to chill out.
