30 Incredible iPhone Photos With Minimalist Composition

Thank you to all of you who submitted such incredible photos in our weekly iPhone photography contest. This week’s theme was “Minimal” and any iPhone photos with a simple, minimalist composition could be submitted. The quality of entries this week was fantastic, making it very difficult to choose just 30 winners. I’ve had to leave many stunning images out, but here’s my final selection of iPhone photos that make excellent use of negative space, simple composition, and abstract shapes and patterns.

How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we published a tutorial covering 10 tips for incredible iPhone street photography. The article covered tips on finding a good location, shooting in different kinds of light, photographing strangers and capturing movement using burst mode.

The article also discussed tips for taking interesting photographs of architecture, such as shooting from different perspectives, using leading lines, finding symmetry and creating abstract images.

So the new contest theme is Urban & Street Photography, and any iPhone photos captured in an urban environment can be submitted. This can include photos of buildings and architecture as well as people in street environments.

To participate, simply tag your iPhone photos using IPSUrban tag on EyeEm. You can tag photos in the description field when you upload them, or when you edit the description of a photo that has already been uploaded (tap the three dots icon to edit a photo).

All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please upload photos to EyeEm in full resolution and without any watermarks to make sure we can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.

The submission deadline is Sunday, May 17.

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.

    • Cocu’s photo is stunning isn’t it. So clean and simple, yet so powerful.

    Oh my goodness, these are so amazing! I love them all. It is just so cool that they were all taken with mobile devices. I also like how unique each one is. A few that really stand out to me:
