"Mobile Phone" - Results from Photo Assignment 71

For the Jan. 2012 Photo Assignment, TDS shooters put their callers on hold and snapped photos with their camera phones. You can view a wide variety of on-the-go imagry in our gallery, Mobile Phone. It's a glimpse of the world as it passes by. And which one will be the SizzlPix Pick of the Month?

Bernie Anderson Mobile Phone

Photo by Bernie Anderson. "This is a building across from one of the schools I teach at. Not very welcoming, I'd say..." Bernie captured this wonderful image with his iPhone 4, then color corrected in Aperture 3. To see all of the other terrific shots from Jan., visit the Mobile Phone gallery page.

Participate in This Month's Assignment

The March 2012 assignment is "Eyes." Details can be found on the Member Participation page. Deadline is Mar. 30, 2012.

Please follow the instructions carefully for labeling the subject line of the email for your submission. It's easy to lose these in the pile of mail if not labeled correctly. For example, the subject line for this month's assignment should be: "Photo Assignment: March 2012." Also, if you can, please don't strip out the metadata. And feel free to add any IPTC data you wish (These fields in particular: Caption, Credit, Copyright, Byline), I use that for the caption info.

Good luck with your March assignment, and congratulations to all of the fine contributors for January.

There are some great shots here! For some reason my entry was not included. Did you receive it?

Hi Michael,

I went back to see what went wrong. Your Jan. entry came in on Feb. 1, and it didn't get pulled with the other Jan. stuff. So sorry. I usually catch late entries when I go back through a second time for spot check.

My apologies,

Wow! Thanks for featuring my shot, Derrick! What an honor!

I'm submitting every month this year. It's a personal commitment. :) I live too far away to attend a workshop ... but perhaps someday there will be opportunity to do that... In the meantime, I do appreciate the site and the podcast. I listen every week! All the way from Mongolia...

Thanks for your work! And thanks again for featuring my shot! Hard to believe what you can do with a phone these days ....


Dear Derrick,
My picture was selected as the Pick of the Month for the January Assignment of Mobile Phone. On your podcast, I heard I will be contacted soon, however I haven't heard anything till date i.e May 02. Does this take this long usually or am I just being impatient to hang a Sizzlpix on my wall? Thank you.
