30 Mind-Blowing iPhone Photos of Symmetry

This week our iPhone photography contest was about symmetry. As always, it wasn’t easy to pick the winners and many great photos had to be left out. With that said, here are my personal favorites this week.

Please consider sharing this post on social media to show the world what the iPhone camera can do and help me share these photos with as many people as possible. Thank you!

Which one of these photos is your favorite? Please let everyone know in the comments.

The New Contest Theme

The new contest theme is VSCO, and you can submit any photos that were post-processed in this app. Check out our VSCO video tutorials if you need help getting started. To get the most out of VSCO, it might be a good  idea to purchase the 38 preset collection for $5.99.

To participate tag your best iPhone photos using #IPSVSCO hashtag on Instagram.

Your Instagram has to be public or I won’t see your photos. It’s OK to submit old photos as well as new ones, but please do not submit more than 10 photos. All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. I do not feature photos with watermarks.

The winners will be featured on this blog and on my Instagram on Sunday, January 19.

  • Geoffrey Miles Mercado

    Thank you so much, Emil! This is very affirming and it helps me build the habit of taking photos everyday. 🙂

  • Ieja Mohamed Saleh

    Thank you so much for selecting my photo. I am honoured. This is my first time and won’t hesitate to participate again! Great job for taking this photography genre to the next level 🙂

    • Thanks for participating! I hope to see more of your photos in the following weeks!

  • Tracy Norris Yates

    My faves are @johnmcle (would love to know post processing steps in that one) and @hugocervantes, beautiful curved lines.

    • Those tow are great!

    • John McLean

      To be honest there wasn’t much post processing required, the picture just worked well. I tried focusing on the background, but focusing on the image in the glass worked better. I think I used iPhoto for editing. I wanted to emphasise the clouds, using the exposure controls, probably increased the saturation a bit, and finally cropped the image to suit Instagram, when I heard about the competition.

      It’s very gratifying that other people like it too! Thanks.

  • Elaine Taylor

    Thank you!! 🙂

  • David Rothschild

    Really great selection Emil. My favorite is the photo of the two girls in the window by @sullvja. Thanks for doing these contests. Very inspiring.

    • Thanks David! I also thought there’s something special about that photo.
