Weekly photo contest: Landmarks!
There are thousands, maybe even millions, of landmarks scattered throughout the world. Some of them have historical impact while others are simply amazing feats of engineering. You may pass some of them on a regular basis while others you may visit on travels. That's your task this week, submit an amazing photo of a landmark you personally have seen and find awesome. The photo can be old or new, but it has to have been taken and edited only with an iPhone or iPad.
The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, July 22nd at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!
It's also time to announce the winners of our last photo contest! And the winner is...
Congrats to forum member buxna for snagging a win in our perspective photo contest. This photo is a perfect example of how much perspective really does matter. Taking a photo of the field head-on would not have been nearly as interesting. Great job buxna! We'll be contacting you shortly to collect your prize!
Now on to the details of this week's photo contest...
The prize: Glif tripod mount and stand!
The winner of this week's photo contest will snag a Glif tripod mount and stand for their iPhone. The Glif can be mounted to any tripod, small or large so you can grab great shots and videos with no motion blur. It'll also be a great accessory to have when iOS 8 lands and time-lapse videos are possible!
Submitted photos must have been taken with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
We'll check the EXIF data of the original file to verify and any edits must have been done with an iPhone or iPad app. No Photoshop, Lightroom, or other external editing programs! If you have external lens accessories such as an Olloclip or other snap-on lens, you are more than welcome to use them.
You can submit as many photos as you'd like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!
Now, before you run off to take your photo, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win.
However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out our iPhone photography series for some tips.
