These are the 20 best iPhone photographs for the year
Apple’s iPhone rise to popularity has quickly made it the most popular camera in the world - it became the most popular camera on Flickr three years ago, and since then the adoption of iPhones has only grown. Moreover, the actual quality of the camera has also increased significantly, as Apple has been very consistent in making the iPhone camera faster, increasing the sensor size, and refining the quality of the images.

We would not go as far as to claim that the iPhone is the best camera phone out there - after all, heavyweights like the Nokia Lumia 1020, the Sony Xperia Z2, Samsung’s Galaxy S5, and the LG G3, but even older devices often capture better-looking and more detailed images than the iPhone 5s, but we’re not here to argue about the technicalities. Instead, we’ll focus on the best photographs captured on Apple’s iPhone in the last year, curated by the annual iPhone Photography Awards.

The contest gives that runs from 2007, gives out three ‘photographer of the year’ medals, awarding each of the winners with an iPad Air. It also has 17 categories where the winner gets an award. It’s a celebration of creativity, an inspiring set of images, showing just how much you can do nowadays with the camera of a smartphone. Take a look at the winners below, and hit the source link at the bottom to see all the honorable mentions.

Most of them are black and white and some of them look tweaked. I think any of the top camera phones could take pictures like these in the hands of a good photographer. I like them all

It looks like a föhn wind. Though it probably isn't since it looks like there isn't any mountains there.

Oh yeah that's right! But I guess they can occur during föhn winds? At least some very similar looking clouds.

Such beautiful pictures! Nature can sure provide beauty that nothing will ever be able to match!

I ccompletely agree! We chase things in our life so much that we don't see natural beauty every day.

ROTFL
Because Apple do nothing since years , menial media attack us with iBS articles to show that Apple is alive. Rumors and photoshops from iFans every day. Right?
Last thing that Apple did was the useless fingerprint scanner and even more useless 64 bit on 1gb icrap. And just put 'S'

Why is #3 even considered good? It just looks like someone took a picture of their dog in the snow. All the rest look like they belong here, and some of them don't even look like they're capable of being from a phone, they're so good.

Simply amazing pictures. Apple has some clever processing algorithms.

Of course these are not raw out of the phone pics. I can just edit pictures coming from an S5, a Z2 or a N1020 to have some allegedly clever processing.
