    It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- Silhouettes! Last week, we focused on shadows and many of our (very awesome) entries were technically silhouettes, so it was only natural for us to move specifically to silhouettes for this week! silhouettes are often times very moody, dramatic, and/or romantic and are classic genre of photography. Although classic, in continues to be a favorite style -- and we want to see *your* style!

    The prize: Glif tripod mount and stand!



    The rules

    The rules of entry are very simple. The photo must have been taken with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (we'll check the EXIF data of the original file to verify) and any edits must have been done with an iPhone or iPad app. No Photoshop CS6! If you have external lens accessories you are more than welcome to use them. You can submit as many photos as you'd like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!

    Resources

    Now, before you run off to take your photos, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win. However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out these articles from our iPhone photography series for some tips.

    The contest begins now and ends next Monday, August 27 at 5p Pacific.

    Here is my 11-year-old son. We were on vacation to Tybee Island in Georgia in April. This was all his idea. He wanted to hold the sun in his hands. I think it turned out awesome. I love how I can tap on the iPhone screen to change the focus and the white balance where I want it to be.

    The first image is my iPhone submission:
    "Sculpture in NYC's Riverside Park at Sunset"
    *Image enhanced with Camera+

    The second image wasn't taken from an iPhone, but I did want to share, as its my favorite silhouette image (and computer desktop). It was taken with a Canon Point and Shoot:
    "Looking across the crater at the Summit of Mt. Fuji at sunrise"
