Best iPhone photos of January
The new iPhone Photo Show podcast started at the beginning of the year, and we invited people to share their best iPhone photos with us, as part of a monthly contest.
We received over 100 contributions and the submissions were so good, it was hard to pick winners.

My co-host Scott Bourne, a fellow Photofocus contributor, and I opted for this beautiful shot of a Norwegian sunrise, by Torbjørn Høstmark Borge of Norway. As we explained on our most recent podcast episode, we both really liked this shot for the composition and Borge’s savvy way of getting in the reflecting water as well.
Borge, who shoots on the iPhone 13 Pro, tells us that a few years ago he sold his Sony gear “and went all in iPhone. Damn I love simplicity, and iPhone photography.”

For runner-ups, we have a tie, and both went to photographers who used cool tools of the iPhone to stretch their photography. First, from PJ Hayden, this macro shot of a horse’s eye. If you’re willing to get this close to a horse with your iPhone 13, you deserve an award, period.

We also liked this long-flowing waterfall from Boothbay, Maine by A McClanahan for using the Live Photos Long Exposure trick, which does such a wonderful job with water photography.
We also loved this classic floral study of a purple tulip by Cinu Paul Stephen, who did such a nice job with lighting and composition.

And Dan Sussman has this cutie. How can you not love the pup sticking his head into the wall opening, and Dan being savvy enough to get the shot at the right moment?

Finally, this morning dew from Oceanside, CA from a guy named Steve.
