There’s no denying the photo and video capabilities of the new Apple iPhone 11 Pro. After all, if it’s good enough for Lady Gaga to film her latest video with, it’s good enough for the rest of us! Apple has now unveiled the winners of its Night Mode, shot on iPhone competition, with some rather astounding and worthy victors.
Photographers from across the globe were invited to submit photos illustrating the new iPhone’s Night Mode capabilities, with images taken on the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max.
Just six photos made the final cut, with the prize including being featured in a gallery on Apple.com, as well as being posted to Apple’s Instagram account, as well as the prestige of being printed on billboards globally.
The winners hail from China, India, Russia and Spain. They were:
Konstantin Chalabov (Moscow, Russia), iPhone 11 Pro
Judge Phil Schiller says: “Konstantin’s photo is a super-dramatic image […] it could be the opening shot of a great Cold War spy movie."
Andrei Manuilov (Moscow, Russia), iPhone 11 Pro Max
Judge Darren Soh says: “An amazingly well-balanced composition that throws so many questions back at the viewer — ‘Where is this? Who lives here?’”
Mitsun Soni (Mumbai, Maharashtra, India), iPhone 11 Pro
Judge Tyler Mitchell says: “This one blows my mind. I have no idea where that deep rich red light is coming from on the tree."
Rubén P. Bescós (Pamplona, Navarra, Spain), iPhone 11 Pro Max
Judge Alexvi Li says: “The ground in the photo reveals beautiful texture when shooting against the light. The simple composition quickly draws viewers into a story, while delivering good image quality.”
Rustam Shagimordanov (Moscow, Russia), iPhone 11
Judge Malin Fezehai says: "The layers in the image create depth and give me a sense of cold and warmth at the same time. It’s a beautifully captured landscape image of a winter evening.”
Yu “Eric” Zhang (Beijing, China), iPhone 11 Pro Max
Judge Jon McCormack says: “This image represents iPhone at its best. Capturing life as it happens, no matter what the light is! The sense of moment, intimacy, and place in this image is very good. It really transports the viewer to being right there.”
