In September 2014, the internationally acclaimed photo-community 500px chose one of my photos to be amongst the winners in a contest looking for the best pictures taken with a mobile phone.
Here’s the quote from their website iso.500px.com:
“They say the best camera is the one that you have with you. For some of you, it’s the phone in your pocket. … we asked you to shoot and submit pictures taken with your mobile device … awe-inspiring entries. We were stoked to see the various ways you got creative with your technique and choice of subjects, using only a mobile device.”
I was very proud, that I was amongst the winners of this contest and that the photo, I had taken during my stay in Lisbon, was prominently displayed on the 500px-website. That, for me personally, not only is a big honour, but also another proof, that a mobile phone like the iPhone is a valid photographic device: you can take amazing pictures with it – read my thoughts about that topic in my blog post “iPhone: a good camera?“.
