Featured Comment by Brad Nichol: "I am really pleased to see this. Most camera review sites along with their traditional forum bases have treated the iPhone and mobile phone imaging as a nasty little disease that degrades the whole photography world...meanwhile the 'great unwashed' have embraced the devices with pure passion and produced some of the most compelling photography in history.
"If the information I have seen is correct over half of all the images taken each day are taken on a smart phone, with the iPhone top of the heap.
"Parallel to the traditional photography websites have been the development of 'mobile photography' sites, which seem to concentrate on apps, images, videos, photographer bios and much more. Many traditional photographers wouldn't dream of visiting these sites. It's their loss. These sites are fascinating, turbocharged with artistic sensibilities and a great insight into the future of photography.
"It's not so much writing on the wall as it is graffiti writ large in technicolor, monochrome and apped till it floats.
"I must add I do have a bias. I run workshops on iPhoneography and was an early adopter, but it truly has been one of the most exciting things I have been involved in photographically."
