This was taken outside the Laundromat last night while I was doing laundry with my Motorola Cliq XT. I didn't use any apps. I used a 'shade' setting and tried to get as much of a silhouette as possible while still catching some color from the scene. Also, you can't see it but there are a few shy unicorns to the far left. After I took this shot I hunted them down and used their blood for detergent. My whites have never looked whiter. Someone should tell Tide.
Cellphone: Apple 3G - Default (after all you can not fiddle around)
Software: iPhoto (only resize)
Technique: no technique, just luck and a kitten wanting to be photographed.
Pierre was a super affectionate cat, funny, playful and has left a huge void in our hearts.
Andorid 1.6, default camera software. "Bar in the mission" Hey I'm drunk in a bar in the mission. Its dark and I bet I can take me some photographs! Thats what was going though my head.
I took this during our after work wakeboarding session. We are not pros, acutally we suck pretty bad. But hey, It's the only way to beat the heat. I won't take my DSLR on board because it will either get dropped in the water or drowned in beer. My buddy snapped it on my 3gs. I adjusted the contrast, exposure, and saturation in the photshop app on my phone.
I used a Jelly Lens - Polorizer Which I hope isn't considered
cheating. I have a handful of the Jelly lenses and tried a few
different ones, this was certainly the best of the bunch.
This picture was taken just before dusk, it has a weird ethereal
strangeness to it.
I used the Panoramatic360 to take this panoramic photo of the sunset. Is around 8 photos. Then I downloaded the simpleresizer to resize to 800 pixels.
Used the default Camera App from Apple
My technique was holding the steering wheel with one hand and resting the
phone on the dash and using the other hand to take the photo.
I took this while driving to Springfield IL the night before an Apple
Seminar for Educational Insitutes. I thought it was really cool to watch the
sun set driving on the highway and there were lots of colors which made it
I used a Motorola Cliq to take this picture. I used the editing options to automatically change the brightness of the picture which made it slightly brighter.
I was at a local Western style park with my family and saw this giant windmill off the the corner of the park. I stood near it and took the picture. It was at dusk and the sun was just about covered by the mountains, which gave it a little diffused light from the corner.
Taken with Motorola Droid using stock camera app and default settings.
This is a cliff face along the coastline in southern California, just before sunset. My favorite part is the lens flare artifact that just happens to look almost exactly like the "Droid Eye", it's like the phone was branding the image all on its own.
Cellphone: Motorola K1
Technique: A small curvature of the image to get the focus of the rainbow.
Photo taken at 6:00 am.
Do not know if it rained during the night, but woke up and was taking my coffee content in the window when I saw this beautiful rainbow, as I have no good camera, I used the humble mobile phone.
I loved the result.
Came to see that even with a device with relatively obsolete VGA camera I got an incredible image.
Editing: I did a little touch up with the Photoshop Mobile app on the exposure and to add saturation to fix the colors of the sunset and cropped the image to balance it out.
The story. My gf and I were in South Beach in Miami for a beautiful dinner. She is a photographer and we walked over to the park at the south beach inlet. She took her camera with her and as I was watching her shoot the evening away, I felt and wanted to capture her in her moment. Her pose may seem a bit unnatural because she is holding a camera up (she had no idea I was taking this photo).
Shot with iPhone 3GS using Gorillacam app
Straightened, cropped, and exposure corrected using Photoshop.com Mobile app
Applied vignette filter and frame using Photoshop.com Mobile app
Story: Just happened to look down while walking to the AirTrain platform at SFO and saw folks queued up for the train. Waited for the next train to arrive so I could capture the blurred figures as they entered the train.
I took this photo using my iPhone 3G. I didn't use any apps to tweak it. I thought it looked cooler if I keep it clean. I got really lucky with this pic. I took this picture after my first meeting with my wedding photographer which went great by the way. As I was walking out to my car I looked up and I saw this really beautiful sunset. I was kicking myself for not having my nicer Nikon on me. So I grabbed my phone and snapped this shot. I was surprised how well the photo turned out. I hope you like it and I love the site.
I took this shot with my Motorola Krave. I slightly moved the phone as I took the picture out of the passenger seat of a car. The effect was that it warped the sign around the rear view mirror.

Res: 5 mp
I was taxing out of Toronto Pearson international airport, storm was passing through and there in the sun was a big rainbow in the gloom.
The picture is of the top bud of a cannabis plant. It was taken by a HTC hero, and edited by PhotoShop mobile.
I decided to take the pic right before I harvested the plant. I then preceded to quick dry it by putting it in the microwave, smoke it, edit the pic, and email it to you for the contest. All from my hero.
This photo was taken with an iPhone 4 camera on June 24, 2010. The flash was set to off and there was no zoom at all.
It was taken on my way home in Miami, Fl at 8:20 PM (amazing the sun still out), I was driving around 45 - 50 mph and shows just how fast the shutter speed is and its nice resolution.
Attached was shot with my iPhone 3GS. Just the standard camera app, no post processing except resizing. I missed the Lens Flare challenge and thought this would be a good chance to incorporate it. The effect is from my LED flashlight shot through my 28mm lens. This is about as close as I could get to attaching a lens to my cellphone camera.
Gear: HTC Hero (Android 1.5)
Apps: HTC Hero's original Camera apps
Techniques: Tap to screen auto focus, setting all auto
This is my first time sending photo for Gizmodo Shooting Challenge, I am excited and happy!
On the flight to Singapore from Indonesia, the sky was so bright and the wings of the plane looks more interesting than usual so I captured a photo of the wings of the plane on the bright sunny day. I hopes the photo can be enjoyable to see and gives you the feel of floating
This was taken on the Devil's Backbone in Texas along RR 32. I used my Nokia N95 and that's it.
1st picture taken on my iPhone 4
Picked up the phone and hit the links with my buddy.
He duffed his shot into the sand and we all thought it would be funny to try out the new camera on his failures.
iphone 2G + ToyCamera
This was shot in a super sunny afternoon(April 23, 2009), i biked to the riverside park in Taipei and played basketball there.
This shot was taken from the top of Breakneck Ridge in Beacon, NY a little after 8 p.m. on Wednesday June 23, 2010. Equipment used was an iPhone 3GS with the standard Apple camera app. A few friends and I hiked Breakneck in the late afternoon and this was my attempt to capture the sunset over the Hudson River. The island in the shot is called Pollepel Island which is home to Bannerman's castle. I think what I like most about the picture is the absence of boats, barges, trains, cars, houses, and other manmade features that are normally visible from the top of the ridge, giving a glimpse of what the landscape may have looked like hundreds of years ago.
After coming back into the house, I noticed a bunch of bananas on the counter sitting alongside a watermelon. The colors looked good together, so I knew what I had to do.
Minimal post-processing was done in the TiltShiftGen app on the iPhone. I emailed the photo to myself and down-sized it to 800 pixels max in PhotoShop (no other processing out-of-camera was done). I call it 'Banelon'...
Thanks for your consideration and for a GREAT site!
I took this with my aging 3mp Samsung Flipshot; no special settings or editing, just auto focus.
The photo is of a small bamboo vase on my windowsill, taken on a fine summer evening. The actual plant has long since died away, but the immortal porcelain panda still shines as a beacon of good luck.
I shot this using my first generation Blackberry Storm. 3.2mp camera. Default settings.
I was driving to the eye specialist with my friend who had just recently found out he had something stuck to his cornea and as we came over the hill the way th clouds look caught my eye and. I had to have a picture. With out thinking I was hanging out of the window of his pickup truck and taking the shot.
I took this photo with my good old iPhone 3G, and then used the app Camera Bag for the "magazine" look. Both me and my girlfriend Annie were too scared to go on this ride, so I took this photo while they were queuing. Due to the slowness of the iPhone 3G camera, timing the ride was tough, and this was the 4th take.

This was taken on a walk with my daughter during my favorite time of night which i rarely get to see because of my work schedule. I snapped about 30 images and it took me 2 hours to pick one. Im a sucker for a good silhuoette.
I had just purchased the toy camera app for my iPhone 3G. I was messing around with it in a McDonalds, and saw this lamp. I thought it would make a great shot.
Taken with a iPhone 3G with the Toy Camera app on the High Saturation setting.
Taken with 3GS. exposure/contrast/saturation in PS Mobile.
I drive this interchange quite often and always enjoy the nice cloudscapes I see throughout the year. Yesterday there was a large storm cell coming in with some dark clouds. The sun was shining where I was so the road was bright and was a nice contrast to the dark sky ahead. I had to whip my phone and snap this in time because I wanted to get the building with the cool reflections. After a quick composure framing the sky and clouds, I drop the phone on my lap and resume driving.
I took this photo with the iPhone 3Gs.
After taking the photo I used PS mobile to Sharpen, Add some contrast and crop the photo slightly due to a undesired capture in the top right. After running it through PS Mobile, I used Image tidy to reduce the noise slightly. I resized the photo too 800px using iPhoto Export.
This is a photo of a new Condo Hi rise being built in Edmonton, AB, Canada. It is called The Icon. The first tower (left), has been completed for a year while the second tower is nearing completion. I go for coffee in a fantastic shop in the retail area below it everyday.
Taken with a Motorola Droid, no filters, no apps, no nothing used, just the phone camera.
I was laying on the couch and it's rare that both of my cats get that close to each other so I had to take a picture. LASER CATS!!!!!!!!!! If you haven't seen the SNL Laser Cats Digital Shorts, you should.
Blackberry Storm 2, sunrise just over the handlebars of my motorcycle. Its probably the best photo I've ever taken with this phone.

A couple of my boys were enjoying a hot afternoon on the slip 'n slide, so I decided to try to get a great action shot in the splash pool area. I put myself (and the phone/camera) in harm's way at grass level to get the best shot. The shot was made when the youngest ended up on his back.
Photo taken with iPhone 3G during beach fire after work on June 23rd during sunset.
I used a low angle and moved the phone as I took the picture to get the slow shutter effect on the water (I call it the water cloud effect). It took several attempts to get it to look decent.
After I took several pictures, I then edited a few in the Photoshop Mobile app and using several adjustments like exposure, and such I got a Picasso effect with the coloring. I then took the photo off my phone made it the correct size and here it is.
Was riding on the F line, headed to Coney Island to check out the Cyclones game when suddenly, my friend Beth was drenched in sun beams. I put my shades on, pulled out my iPhone and snapped a pic. In reviewing it, I was surprised by the intense amount of lens flare and decided I really liked the photo. It's like the sun beams are radiating direction from the smiling faces on the TCI poster.
PHONE USED: iPHONE 3GS
APP: Hipstimatic SETTING: John S lens and Ina's 1969 film
APP: Mill Color: Used this to tweak color and pull out some detail
APP: PS Mobile: A little more tweaking in color, exposure, contrast.
Taken using my iPhone 3GS and edited with the Tilt Shift Gen application on the phone. I was trying to come up with something interesting around my house, this is a bird bath we have in our front yard and after taking the picture I really loved how the light was reflecting off the water onto the little guy. Then I just used the Tilt Shift application to blur out and darken some of the surrounding areas of the picture and decided to give this contest a shot.
The picture was taken using an iPhone3Gs with OS 3.1.3. No special apps were used, just the native iPhone camera app.
The pic is of Tobay Beach (Long Island, New York) taken from standing on the concession/restroom area.
I occasionally go to jog on the beach after work to decompress when it is nice out and on this particular day, absolutely no one was there leaving just me and my surroundings. I placed the phone on the handrail of the concession and focused on the handrail in the lower 1/3 of the shot.

Snapped a few shots while walking down the pier last night. There was some beautiful cloud formations and sun rays hitting the water. Played with the CameraBag app until I found the right feel to the photo.
Picture was taken with an iPhone 3G, slightly cropped with app Photogene. Other than that, the photo was not altered. I walked in this little store (or market) in Chinatown, NYC, with a friend. My friend wanted to get some traditional Chinese food for her parents. While she was ordering, I was looking around, amazed at how reddish, purplish, pink everything was how this store was so stereotypical Chinese. I snapped a couple photos real quick. I picked the best I one I took. Hope you guys like it.
Taken with my droid, using the camera360 app with tilt-shift mode.
This is a view from a friend's apartment in the corona heights section of san francisco. i took at least a dozen tilt-shift photos that day, they're kind of awesome...
I took this shot last night on the Santa Monica pier with my iPhone 3G using the ShakeItPhoto Polaroid app. I took a blind date to the pier in Santa Monica CA. It was a brisk evening. I tried to touch her boob while kissing her and she kneed me in the nuts. I took this picture to commemorate the occasion just before vomiting into the deep blue sea. At least the shot came out nice...
"Blueberries in the city"
this is a shot of blueberries that i have growing in my container garden on my veranda on the eighth floor of my apartment building, in San Francisco, I only used the built-in camera app to take this shot, and yes the berries are sweet, tart and amazing to snack on.

This photo was taken using a Palm Pre Plus, and nothing was done after the shot was taken, except resizing it down to fit the 800px wide requirement. It was a 1/15 second exposure, at F2.4 with a 3.25mm focal length. The image is of my Windows 7 login picture, which is my dog mid-chops lick, shot through a bottle of iced tea. I took a couple of others, but this one stood out because of the reflection of the overhead light, and warped top right corner of the picture. The dark "horizon" was the label on the bottle.

Here is my entry, taken with my new iPhone 4 and edited with PS Mobile. Shot in my front garden with all 4 iPhone boxes - why is the iPhone 3G's so big?!
This is a candid picture of my girlfriend taken during breakfast with an iPhone with some Best Camera effects thrown in.. If she knew I was sending this in she would kill me!
There was a local old cars exhibition yesterday during my town's Quebec Day celebrations. This was shot using a 2-yr old iPhone 3G and I used CameraBag to give it a Helga look.
This little transformer burned up in my attic due to some faulty wiring and a bad electrical storm several months ago. I've had him sitting on my desk since we replaced him. It didn't actually strike me until I snapped this photo for this week's contest that he must've been yelling out in pain when it all went down.
I captured this with an iPhone 4, using the Hipstamatic app (one of my faves). No post-editing was done to the photo (except to resize it).
I took this photo mid-flight Friday morning. Bored on the short flight from Austin to Dallas, I disregarded the constant reminders from the intercom to properly store any and all electronic devices. I pulled out my Motorola DROID, opened the default camera application, set the mode the 'sunset' and snapped this one before anyone even noticed. No modifications, other than an 800px resize using Seashore on my Mac.
