THEME: Cell Phone Photography
So I decided to take a different path for the next contest. So far, all of the contests have been to take photos with a normal dslr, some cell phone pics have been in some of the contest, but for this contest, your submitted photo must be from a cell phone. Also, there is a rule for no photoshopping or crazy color altering, but for this contest that will also change. To sum it up, photos must be from your cell phone and you can modify the image in anyway except for the addition of other objects in post processing.
DUE DATE: February 10th

Please remember to RESIZE your photos so they are within the 1024 x 1024 pixel limit!!

Also, if you are going to edit your image, please keep the EXIF data intact. If your image editor removes such data, then upload the original picture with your submission. In this case, the original does not need to be resized.

New Due Date: 6th March

I ask you, why not? Photography should not just be captured with only a slr or a dslr. Telling a story through an image can be taught through any kind of medium and if capturing that story through a cell phone is one method, then hell, why not make it a theme.

Alright, but how do you tell the difference? I mean some cell phones have better camera than actual cameras[I don't mean DSLR's, because not everybody on here uses a DSLR].
Also, whatever happened to the winners of the last contests?o.O

That is the main point of this contest. Not everyone has a dslr or a point and shoot. It is supposed to broaden the horizon for people to go out and take a photo and be apart of the contest. Yes, some phones have better cameras on them, well aware of that, but as for now, I wanted everyone to participate in this contest and the widest medium for photography would be cell phone photography since everyone has a phone now these days with camera capabilities. As for the winner, the winner was you with a vote of 4. I am talking with another mod if we should have a whole thread dedicated to the winner of a contest. Now since we have been going back and forth about this with no pics, I might as well and start.

The photo is of seattle skyline taken at kerry park

Does it have to be something recent or something that we've already taken with our phones?

Oops, appearently my Cell Phone (Samsung Wave btw, in case someone want's to call bull, and fact check me.) takes really large photos. So I had to edit it. Here's the edited version within limits. Please let me know if there's still stuff wrong with it.
