Deil Esguerra - HTC Sensation XE
Last time's winner

We're back with the 42nd 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 Deil Esguerra's photo, taken with the HTC Sensation XE. 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 15 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 42nd set of favorite photos...

I mostly like #12. I never saw a beautiful view before of the Effiel Towel.

The subject you're capturing is one of the most important things in a photograph. It's up to the photographer to place it correctly in the photo, though, giving it the artistic feel which every great image has.

You can take a beautiful photo without focusing on an object...there's no hard rule.

Of course you don't need to focus on a certain object, but if you're judging a photo which has one as its main attractive (take a look at #10, for example), you must take it into consideration.

There are many different kinds of photos, and like you said, there's no hard rule. But this doesn't mean that a picture which relies on an object to make it beautiful isn't beautiful at all, nor does it mean that one without a subject in focus isn't good either.

It also depends on the eyes and opinion of the one who's seeing the photo. Some prefer images with a well-focused subject, others prefer abstract ones. It's mostly personal preference.

#2 is spectular actually, i know this building. Its a heritage in Indonesia, the photographer does excellent in managing the object clean from destructive objects, because of why? Cause behind it there are so many electricity poles, signposts, and highway, and though the color seems a lil bit exaggerated, but it provides you still natural color with good contrast, go for #2
