Best photos taken with an iPhone in 2016 [Photos]

Who says you can’t take incredible photos with a smartphone? The annual iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) proves that Apple’s latest devices are all you need to take great images on the go — and here are the best iPhone photos taken in 2016.

“This year’s winners were selected from thousands of entries submitted by iPhone photographers from 139 countries around the world,” explains the IPPAWARDS. The grand prize image, taken by Siyuan Niu of Xinjang, China, is named “The Man and the Eagle.”
“The brave and wise Khalkhas live along the mountains in the south of Xinjiang and are companions with the eagles,” said Siyuan. “They regard eagles as their children and train them for many years to hunt. This 70 year old man is rigid and solemn in front of family and friends, but when he is with his beloved eagle, the corner of his mouth would curve up.”

The photo awarded first place was taken by Patryk Kuleta of Warsaw, Poland, and is titled “Modern Cathedrals.”

“Most of my shots come from Warsaw and one from Strasbourg,” said Kuleta. “The idea was to make it more impressionistic, to show architecture in a completely different way that combines my background in graphic design and painting.”
“I was on a iPhone workshop and reunion with a friend and teacher in Cape Cod,” explains Robertis. “We all went out to photograph the the perfect sunset. I tend to bring a few things when I travel, one being this wonderful red umbrella. When others shoot the sunsets and beautiful scenery, I like to photograph some human aspects in these scenes.”
