Proud: 500px-jury chose my photo

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

“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?“.
