Mobile phone photo contest: Pick of the day

Categories: Community

Here at the CBC Community Desk, we admire the iPhone-only camera app Instagram, even though we're mostly a Blackberry and Android bunch here. We like the community that has formed around the app and its use of hashtags.

And sometimes we even like the filtering effects.

For instance, the faux-retro-film effect works really well on today's photo contest pick of the day, from CarlyGowan, a quirky shot of her shoes against brick and grass.


"The processing is subtle," says CBC Multimedia photographer Evan. "The textures are nicely complemented by the muted filter affect and the dark vignette at the top actually draws the viewer's eye toward the shoes."

The Community team is looking for your most creative mobile phone pictures and the Multimedia team will be on hand throughout the month to provide tips for getting the most out of your mobile phone's camera.
