10 great images captured with smartphones #127

We're back with the 127th post in our special photographic-centric series where we present you with a number of awesome images taken by... well, you (and your cell phones).

So, which picture did you like most last time? The answer is Monu Mishra's photo, taken with the Nokia Lumia 1020. And a pretty well-deserved first place it is, we should say!

Of course, there are many other incredible images left to be seen. Let's continue with another set of 10 pics, each of which can easily convince even the most professionally-inclined photographer that cell phones are more than a toy in the camera department.

Please note that if your own awesome image is not included here, this doesn't mean that it won't end up on the site. We simply might not have gotten to it yet! So, we urge you to continue following us, as we'll be publishing more of these truly great photos in the following days and weeks.

We'd also like to remind you that you can continue submitting your cool cell phone pics to the following email address:

In order to not miss on all the glory, you also have to mention your name/nickname, as well as the phone you used to take the shots. A nice additional piece of info would be a name or a short description for the image.

With that, we now leave you with our 127th set of favorite photos...

Which photo do you like most?

Nokia Lumia 1020 is still the king of phone cameras. When nokia comes back, I'm hoping they resurrect that carl zeiss lens to their new device.

King of taking 40 seconds to take 4 photos.

It was King but its been surpassed. My friend has one even though it took good images and she hated it after a while. Took age to process images, hard to focus the metering was sometimes off. The image on the screen wouldn't change when you changed the shutter speed. Camera app lacked other modern features like Panorama and ability to change image sizes. Also Windows, no apps like Instagram and Snapseed.

I really like this set of photos. I like #5 the most even though when zoomed in it triggers a bit of Trypophobia in me.

In #1 it looks like that fungus has taken a lichen to that tree.
