I think 11 and 14 are the best, but ofcource thats a matter of taste. Also number 4 must be a joke

1, 6 and 11 for me. It's amazing just how good pictures can be taken with phone by someone who knows what he's doing. Although, I believe most of these pictures went through some form of post processing.

11 is the best IMO. However I was disappointed with some of the other choices, they're abysmal for 'nomination' standards. I know this hasn't had the same stunning level of 'real' photography nominations, but some of the pics are excellent indeed. Keep the good works peeps! Oh yes, for the people who complains about how it is PPed, I think you shouldn't complain. PP is a major part in photography and it is not supposed to be differentiated from photography itself.
