30 Wonderful Photos Taken In Beautiful & Dramatic Light

Thank you for the incredible images submitted in our weekly iPhone photography contest. This week’s theme was “Light” and any photos that capture beautiful or dramatic light could be submitted. With 541 photos to choose from, it was very difficult to select just 30 winners, and I had to leave many great images out. But here’s my final selection of iPhone photos that capture stunning light in the form of sunsets, shadows, silhouettes, lens flare and more.
