30 Incredible Close-Up & Macro iPhone Photos

Thank you to everyone who participated in our weekly iPhone photography contest. This week’s theme was “Close-up & Macro Photography” and we had over 850 wonderful submissions. With so many amazing photos it was very difficult to choose just 30 winners, but here’s my final selection of beautiful iPhone photos that use close-up composition to capture incredible detail.
