Cool images, taken with your cell phone #50

Cool images, taken with your cell phone #50
We're back with the 50th 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 Philippe Simoes's photo, taken with the Samsung Wave. 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 50th set of favorite photos...

Which photo do you like most?

Oh man, with Pureviews looming in, and stacked sensors here and there this Cool Images from PA will surely get a bump in participants and quality. :)

I feel the same =). Maybe we'll start seeing more serious photographers submitting their smartphone photos because they'll be using them more often.

Based on the amount of votes that #5 got, can you please stop with the cat photos?

Excuse me PhoneArena but the photo number 12 simply sucks. Low amount of detail and very blurry on the top side..

Dear PA, can we really pretty please stop with the cat and insects? I'm fine with them if there's composure, depth, creativity in what makes the photo, but what i see here is clearly nothing. I'm sure there are better images sent to you. This is a competition i see, yes, there are no prizes nor awards...but atleast make the competition worthwhile. I really like 8, 9 and 15...that's taking mobile photography to a better competition, including 13. But i'm really disappointed with 1, with the power he had, he could have done much better.

Suggestion, I think it'll be fair if you will not pick an entry as an article image/thumbnail so the voters will not be influenced. As I have noticed, most, if not all, picture used as main article image gets the highest votes. Also, enhanced photos should not be considered valid as it doesn't show the actual capability of the phone's camera.
