Best smartphone camera photos #83

We're back with the 83rd 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 Emix's photo, taken with the Samsung Galaxy S4. 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 83rd set of favorite photos...

Which photo do you like most?

Somenone still uses galaxy s2 !!! Good job man. I voted for number 6 tho, the colors are so natural.

If the photographer of number 5 focused on the ocean and blurred the lock, it would be the winner.

8. I like the green/blue balance and the haze effect that melds the colors. Awesome field of depth too.

There is exactly 1.000 good pictures in this lot. And that's #4. There's another 2-3 interesting ones but none of them can even qualify, when their horizons are tilted beyond reasonability, which is something that plagues the whole lot. :(

Technically speaking, I agree with you that #4 is probably the best photo here. However, I really like #6 a lot and chose it because it has this sort of heavenly, ethereal feel to it.

These are all pretty good minus one of them, but #9 I like the lens flare effect. Is that the Galaxy S2?

PIC no: 3 looks fishy to me. The nexus 4 can never take such good photos.
