    Congratulations Neat - It's amazing what the new phones can achieve in the hands of an experienced photog.

    Congrats on top spot. There was something about this which bothered me....still not sure if it is your pop or the scaled down sizing. But it shows even with a phone, the true skill is in the one who hold it.

    Congrats on a well-deserved 1st place.

    Beautiful combination of scenery and sunset. My top favourite in this challenge.

    @Stevebee Believe it or not I took this with my google pixel 3 phone camera. I bought it before our trip to Alaska, we did a side trip to Canada afterwards. I bought my Canon camera and Sony too, but I think I took more photos with my phone... as you know itís so easy to whip out, and Iím super impressed with itís clarity sharpness and contrast. As for the shutter speed I guess I had no control with that ;)

BTW we saw about four bears, really close up. So thrilled about that!

    My No. 2. How can you go wrong with a vista like this! (Easy, the lighting would be tricky I am sure.) While I am a little adverse to the standard sunset/sunrise clichť shot, this is above all of that. Looking hard to find any quibble, so I've tossed in this, maybe a bit over sharpened (though I expect it is more this needs to be 2000 x 1500 size to bring out the detail?)

    Impressive scene - great color in the sky. Might like to have something of interest in the mid-left foreground to balance the yellow in the sky.

    Postcard perfect. I love the composition and the lighting is superb.

    Amazing landscape shot. Layers of trees and hills. What intrigues the most is how much detail you maintained even in he darker trees. I guess that is called great dynamic range. Anyway, it's gorgeous and very high in my fav.

    Superlative landscape with great sharpness, clarity, and color. I hope it is framed and hanging somewhere. I'm very surprised at the camera settings f1.8 aperture and 1/66666s shutter. My first reaction is really? I can't find any camera with that shutter speed, even electronic shutter speeds top out at 1/32000. My second is why would one use those settings for a sunset landscape?
