iPhone photo contest gets the beast out of the tiny camera

05 Nov, 2008

An online iPhone photo contest was recently held and the winning entries have just been announced. The iPhone camera has been a subject of many polemics and if you ask us, it just sucks, but it's still nice to see what you can do with enough enthusiasm and some serious photoshopping.

We all know that the iPhone camera is no good and serves more as a complimentary feature - snapping some contact pics seems its best and most appropriate application. Nevertheless, the wonderful guys over at all-things-adobe KelbyTraining.com have thrown in an iPhone photo contest as means to popularize their iPhone book.

Scott Kelby, the author of the book and also publisher of the Photoshop User Magazine and co-host of the Photoshop User TV, has some really nice books on digital photography and Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, but we doubt that the mass public really needs an iPhone book.

The low quality of the iPhone camera makes it even more interesting and fun to see some of the winning entries in a dedicated photo contest. We hope you enjoy them too.
