Would You Believe These Incredible Photos Were Taken on a Phone?

Jun 10 2014 - 1:44pm

Even with all the iPhone photography tips [1] and apps out there [2], it's still impressive when you see a stunning shot taken on a phone instead of a DSLR. Case in point: this year's winners of the annual iPhone Photography Awards. Ahead, check out all the winners [3] of the 17 categories like architecture and animals (and see the runner-up photos here [4]). Entries came from iPhone photographers from more than 70 countries like Germany and South Africa — and some are even better than you'd imagine.
