Last Monday I posted a whole bunch of pictures taken with Windows Phones and this week it is going to be Apple iPhone photography that gets to be the focal point.

I’ll be digging through link after link on Flickr to try and find my favorite pictures.  Every iPhone has the opportunity to be featured here.  Just like the Windows Phones, I want to showcase photography from both the high-end and low-end devices.

Like the Windows Phone pictures these may also be edited or photoshopped, however I try to find pictures that have been altered using mobile apps on the device itself such as Instagram, VSCO, Snapseed, or Adobe Lightroom.  The camera software is as important as the hardware in my opinion.  Some may be edited on a computer, but you can’t increase resolution and detail so I feel like they can still be shown off.

Make sure to click on the images below to get the full, high-definition image from Flickr.  I highly recommend it in case you need a new wallpaper for your device!

How will the Apple iPhones stack up against the Microsoft Lumias?

Take a look and judge for yourself:

So that wraps up the first Apple iPhone photography post!  You can expect the next one in three weeks.

Next Monday will be the Androids.  It should make for an interesting gallery.

I’d like to mention a few things about my experience finding these pictures.

There was a lot more “junk” to filter through before finding pictures that struck a chord with me.  The reason for this is that there are simply more iPhone users uploading images to Flickr than there are Windows Phone.

Also, it seemed that the “average” set of Windows Phone images were of higher photographic quality than the iPhone images.  This could be attributed to more photography-centric users choosing Windows Phone for their hobby device than an iPhone.

What was your favorite from the fifty?  How do you think the iPhone photographers held up against the Windows Phone photographers?  Or better yet, did I do a better job of finding better pictures to showcase?

Let me know in the comments below!
