    All these “honorable mentions” are amazing … Samantha’s “Tonight” was a great choice, no doubt … just lovely. I particularly like “Crazy sky over Bay Bridge, SF” by Mirza Asad Baig, and “Impressive Morning” by Tommy Zeta. Nice work everyone.

    Not all of them were taken and edited with Camera+ only. Check this pic showing real c+ editing and fake. Be fare, many people took shots with the rules and they weren’t considered because of some people who prefer to cheat.

    @Ali Lars:you’re absolutely right.

    Ali Lars is right. I can see that some pics weren’t even taken with the iPhone. Just imported to C+ and then shared to the contest. So I would like to know what are the people responsible for this contest doing to analyse the pictures so they and we can be sure they were taken with C+.

    Best regards.

    Obviously the people who are responsible for this, aren’t using some professional methods to monitor the contest and photos. They only check the right panel in Campl AND THATS IT!

    @Ali the rule sys that the pic must be taken and shared using camera+. Not sure about others but my pic was taken and edited using camera+. The only additional editing was done in DynamicLight to give it a HDR effect which probably stripped off the EXIF info. @Lisa if it not OK to use any other editing app, please remove my pic from your mention.

    Hi Lisa

    First up, what an amazing selection of pictures… some of the very best photos I have ever seen from iPhone4/camera+. I’m honoured to have been shorltlisted this week.

    Second up, it’s a little disappointing to discover that some of the pictures may have been taken on DSLRs and imported into Camera+ afterwards… :( It strikes me this is pretty much like steroids in athletics…

    I think the rules are clear in spirit if not in absolute wording: the competition is a promotion to celebrate the synergy between iPhone/iPod and Camera+. With that in mind, it’s imperative that all entries are captured on iPhone/iPod and post-processed on Camera+, and only Camera+. After all, without their app genius and sponsorship, there would be no competition, and no prizes.

    So lets all play fair: pretty much anything goes for #mostly365 because that’s all about posting a daily pic anyway you can. But the competitions are different… they’re all about Camera+ and how it gets the very best out of the pictures you’ve taken on iPhone/iPod. That’s the spirit of the competition, if not the letter of the law, and I will go on entering iPhone-only pix unless I hear otherwise.

    Congratulations to winner! The photos are amazing!

    I hope there’ll be a community feature for Camera+ in the future. Seriously, it’s the biggest point missing.
