30 Incredible iPhone Photos of Cities and Street Life

Thank you all for participating in our weekly iPhone photography contest. As expected, there was a large number of great submissions this week, which is not surprising since most iPhone photographers live in cities. As always, it wasn’t easy to pick the winners and many excellent photos had to be left out. With that said, here are my personal favorites this week.

The New Contest

The next week’s theme is monochromatic photos, and the new contest tag is #IPSMono.

While pure black and white photos are technically monochromatic, I want you to get more creative, so I will not feature black and white (grayscale) photos. I want you to add a tint to your photos, just like I’ve done in the photo below.

Monochromatic iPhone Photo

If you don’t know how to create monochromatic photos that are not B&W, check out my most recent tutorial at INK361 on creating monochromatic photos in Snapseed.

To participate tag your best monochromatic photos using #IPSMono tag on Instagram. Your Instagram must be public or I won’t be able to see your photos. It’s OK to submit old photos as well as new ones, but please only submit your very best work. All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please do not submit photos with large watermarks.

The winners will be featured on this blog and on my Instagram on Monday, September 16.

It's easy to take a quick snapshot with iPhone, but most people don't know how to take full control of their iPhone's camera. That's why we created a free video revealing 7 hidden iPhone camera features that every photographer should use.

  • Emil – what a great array of city shots! Thanks for including mine. One of the downfalls of living in the suburbs is only occasionally venturing into a city!

    I love the theme for next week!

    • Thanks Geri! I hope people will get really creative with the monochromatic theme.
