Shot on my 3G in Bushwick, Brooklyn while I was getting my bike fixed up. Used film lab and Photoshop mobile.

Camera: iPhone 3GS Apps Used: Fototimer, Photogene and Photoshop (For iPhone) I had a bag of m&m's on my desk that i had gotten from a friend's birthday party, but I had a stomach ache so I didn't feel bad using them for this shot. First I built a contraption that suspended my phone above my piano then poured the m&m's out of their large ziploc onto it, turned on a very bright piano lamp and snapped this shot. Then devoured the m&m's anyway.
iPhone 3GS Used 2 apps, one is for lens flareshot in upstate NY
- shot with iPhone 3Gs, @ LIve Bait bar in NYC Flatiron District. Shot in lowlight, against oblong refrigerator. After the picture was taken, i launched LoMob to apply the grid and B&W filters, and used the Photoshop app to crop. I had this image in less than a minute.

Just coming from surfing at Bolinas on Hwy 1 going past Stinson beach. I used Hipstamatic on an iPhone 4 - cheap and easy color grading solution though total Rez is smaller. I'm happy with the old school look, feels like a 60's beach photo. Surprising lack of motion blur considering I took it from a car going 35 mph.

Exposure Mode: Auto exposure
Exposure Program: Normal program
Exposure Time: 1 / 632
Flash: No flash function
FlashPix Version: 1.0
Focal Length: 3.85
ISO Speed Ratings: 64Taken with my iPhone 3GS -I took this picture of a train as it rolled into the station. I used the twisty-cam method to produce the warped effect of a barreling metal train turning to a liquid monster as it approaches the viewer.
Beautiful sunny day in Idaho. I wanted to try a sun flare photo since there was no sun in Seattle the week of that challenge. Taken with iPhone4 - no editing done.
Shot with a Sony Ericsson W810 with a modified camera driver, set to auto.
Not much technique.. just tried different angles with the sun. I was on lunch break and took a walk over a hill and just started shooting. This phone has and amazing camera for its age.
I had just gotten my iPhone 4 when I stumbled across this alley that was awesome looking, but would not expose correctly, so I decided to try doing HDR in my phone. I used an iPhone 4 and exposed the dark and the light areas then blended in HDR Pro and cropped and straightened in Photoshop.com Mobile.
This picture was taken with a iPhone 3G using the regular camera app and I did the colour-editing and crop with the Camera+ app. In my experience, this is by far the best app for photo editing on the phone.
HTC Evo 4g
Taken with stock camera app, then edited in Photoshop.com mobile app
I applied vibrant colors to the photo in Photoshop.com
Resized to 800px in GIMP
This statue is in an area of The Colony/Plano (north Texas), and is one of the last bits of ranchland in an otherwise vibrant flurry of suburb shopping centers and Manhattan-esque residential areas. I drive by it on my way to work everyday, but it's also located at an intersection that does not have an area to park at for a mile in either direction.

Taken with my HTC Evo 4G, straight from the camera.
The subject is a formation in the Garden of the Gods park, Colorado Springs, CO. I was on a bike ride and remembered the challenge ...
Rubbing my eyes I gazed out the window to find some particularly beautiful clouds peering back at me. So I snapped a shot, and upon looking at the resulting (attached) picture, and found my mind trying to turn itself inside-out! After landing and some quick research, I found that this was a phenomenon caused by the iPhone's 'rolling shutter' - something I was not aware of previously.
The Nexus-like ceiling fan in my study - adore it. :) Taken simply with the an Crystal GD900 at automatic settings, no apps or adjustments.
Taken with an iPhone 4, edited with the Plastic Bullet & PS Mobile.
On a road trip this weekend I ended up walking around Downtown Grand Rapids, MI. The weather was alternating between violent and beautiful, and the clouds decided to line up unbelievably for this shot. Plastic Bullet graded the photo perfectly, and PS Mobile corrected the orientation after Plastic Bullet turned the photo sideways (unfortunate bug, or artistic statement?).
Taken with: IPhone 4
This shot was tkaen Friday morning the day after my pruchase of my new IPhone 4. When I looked out the window I noticed the flag, flowers and the morning sunlight provided great contrast with one another. I took the picture through the screen on the window to provide and element of texture to the photo that would not normally be present.
Sony Ericsson w580i
Took this one over the weekend on a family vacation at Truman Lake in Warsaw, Missouri. Everything about that scene was perfect, but I only had my cellphone on me to shoot it. I think the little guy did a pretty nice job!
I used my boyfriend's iPhone to take this photo of him DJing at The Red Door in New Hampshire. The lighting was very poor but it created a dramatic, high-contrast image that also appears to have a paint filter applied to it.
I took this in my garden just after a rain with my Storm2. I had the focus set to "closeup" but otherwise just went with the stock settings. The focus on the camera does a great job of closeup shots for a cell phone.

Droid Incredible (8 MP camera). No camera or effects app. Default settings. No flash. Took a number of very cool picture at a bar; however, once again bested by inebriation, I inadvertently deleted my top shots. In scrambling to find a new shot at 10:30 Sunday night, decided to bear down...and play some Counter Strike Source. During play I realized that, apparently, I have a propensity to go right when under fire, because the "D" key on my keyboard is in a state of disrepair. Decided that would be my submission.
I used my iPhone 3GS to shoot this picture. I was driving out looking for pictures to take of the clouds and I saw this as I was driving down. I took out my iPhone 3GS and snapped a few shots. I used Camera+ app to add the "so emo" effect to it which gave it a really dramatic look.
The photos were taken with my new iPhone 4. I was on my way home from dinner with my significant other after a massive storm went through and the aftermath was a beautiful sunset. I had the flash off and that was it.
I took this picture using the CameraFX app on my Motorola Droid. I used the Toy Camera "filter". I was sitting by our pool in our complex when I noticed this "lonely" hibiscus flower. Started taking pictures of it using the different effects. This is my favorite.
Equipment: HTC Incredible
Technique: Slight crop in Photoshop
Location: Nickajack Lake Rest stop, I-24 East near Jasper TN
Stopped on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, June 27th, 2010 and while enjoying the breeze coming off the lake, snapped this picture to share the scene with by family when I arrived home in Chattanooga. I remembered the contest just in time to get my submission in.
I used my Samsung U740 for this, which has a 2mp camera. I was walking along some local trails when i saw this and after i took pictures with my camera i got this. I didnt do any editing to it, just left it the way it was.

Shot with the generic camera app on my motorola droid. Cropped,
resized, tweaked in the app picSay. No computers used. I was out with the wife looking at a potential new
apartment/townhouse. Lighting was midday sun (crappy) but I was pleased with the picSay
app, I think the picture I've tweaked looks as though it were taken at dusk.
Taken on my N95-2 with macro focus, black and white filter and contrast slightly increased. Since I use a DSLR for photography I hadn't used my phone much and I was pleasantly surprised by the extensiveness of the photographic controls on this old Nokia. I guess thanks are in order.
Shot at Electric Daisy Carnival 2010 on Saturday night. Lots of love and music in the air. Can't wait until next year! Shot with my iPhone 4, exposure and contrast handled in Photoshop mobile.
Taken with my HTC Incredible with a dvd lens from my husbands spare parts computer stuck to the outside to act as a macro lens. No editing was done to picture.
Mode ISO 50 Macro Focus
The picture was taken in "Vintage Mode" with the exposure dialed down a few notches. I was standing outside, trying to find something that I could possibly use in this contest, when my daughter came outside wanting to blow bubbles. We had previously been out in the pool together and I had earlier hung our bathing suits outside to dry. As we were playing, a good sized bubble found its way into the the puddle that had been left behind on the railing, so I pulled out my phone, quickly toggled a few settings, and this was what I got!
It's off the Samsung Moment I have with the standard camera app on it (Go Android!) and I believe there is a lot of great photography that is being done with next to no editing needed. I have been taking photos of my food for years - getting food at a restaurant should be interesting, tasty, and full of volume, and I think cupcakes are a little piece of heaven. Forget seeing photos of people getting drunk at parties - I'd rather see photos of food. Usually not blurry and tasty.
Cellphone: Motorola Krave ZN4 Megapixels: 2
I took this in a moving car while on a road trip. The reflections on the water caught my eye. This is the original picture, not edited or cropped.
Photo name: Halftime.
Camera: iPhone 4 with flash on.
Post process: Photoshop mobile app to rotate, crop and adjust contrast a bit.
I took this at a party after the US got eliminated from World Cup 2010 by Ghana. I formed a ring with my hand over the iPhone lens and flash to form a very crude snoot to get the light falloff effect from the center of the image.
Cell: Sony Ericsson Lively
Technic: Blue light in water
This is a picture of my fish, Beja, in the aquarium with a light blue. I needed to reduce the size ...
Used Photoshop for iPhone to add the border
Photo was taken at a bar in NYC with a ton of toys in the window.
Camera(phone): 8.0 MP, HTC EVO 4G (with a magnetically attached macro lens)
Settings: Flash on
I recently got this $10 magnetically attachable macro lens from Dealextreme. I had very low expectations for it, but it transformed my phone. Luckily, during my first few tries with the lens, I saw a tiny spider web on my patio. In it had a very small spider with a freshly captured fruit fly in his grasp. Apparently this was not a rare feed.
Equipment: iPhone 3GS
Apps used: TiltShiftGen, CropForFree
Technique: Avoid being struck by lightning
My 8 year old daughter and I were on our way to go swimming. We looked at the sky and decided swimming would not be a good idea. Lately, I have been intrigued by how well the iPhone does with taking pictures of clouds. I decided to stop for a bit to snap a few photos, while my daughter begged me to stop, otherwise we would get struck by lightning. I've formed quite an addiction to seeing the results of these challenges week after week and this is my first challenge entry.
Cellphone: Nokia N95App: default Technique: macro
I decided to take this picture because, Leonard, my cat, is always sitting meowing at the window of our apartment. The light at down was very beautiful to take a picture, specially with a cell, witch requires a very good light to take a nice picture.
I figured this challenge would lend itself well to a abstracted self portrait sort of thing, so I had a few beers and went around the house taking different pictures of me taking pictures with my phone. This is our tea pot with water spots all over it. Sort of looks like I ran some texture filters through but to be true to the contest no manipulation was used. I really like how things got distorted like a hyper wide angle lens sort of deal.
F # 2.8
I shot this in my kitchen with the under-cabinet lights on and used my iPhone 3GS's default camera app, then edited it with the SwankoLab, Mill Colour & Tilt Shift Gen apps. Despite the obvious noise, I adore how it came out and want to try and replicate the same thing using my DSLR - then maybe get it blown up and hung up on the wall.
This was taken with an iPhone 3GS using the Snapture app. Then in Camera Bag saved as Helga. And then again as Plastic.I found this old phone and thought it was appropriate to this weeks
contest given we are taking pictures with phones these days.
I got home today and found my legos by a bottle of bourbon, dividing their loot. I surprised them with my Nokia 5800XM 3.2MP camera, macro mode, no tweaking in the camera (nokia Ovi Store lacks any kind of tweaking app). As I had to send a 800px wide image, I´ve opened it on Canon´s DPP and only did an auto curve assist then resized it.

This shot was taken while walking around in Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, at a memorial for George Westinghouse. I used my iPhone 4, and then applied exposure, color, contrast, and blur filters to the image in Photoshop Mobile. I imported the image on to my desktop and used Preview to resize it for submission.
Anything to do on travel, one cell cam, one chalenge, one photo
I recently bought an HTC Hero online to use as a nice phone and a decent, pocketable camera. I decided this week to take off auto-focus to see if i could take shots with bokeh. I used the standard camera app on the Hero and used my knee to support the sunglasses.
So at about one o'clock on Sunday morning, I was walking/stumbling home from a bar when I remembered that this week's shooting challenge was for cellphones and I had my spankin' new iPhone 4 in my pocket. As I came across my neighborhood grocery store, I thought it would be perfect to take a shot of my favorite neon sign ever...the "SHUT" sign next to their "OPEN" sign. With much improved camera sensor and the bright light of the neon sign, it made for a pretty sweet picture.
