The 'Best Photo Taken on a Smartphone' contest, launched by Celebrity Cruises, encouraged amateur photographers to submit their holiday snaps and has announced that a shot of the Gangaramaya Viharaya Temple, taken in Colombo, Sri Lanka, has taken top place.
The photo, submitted by holidaymaker Zoe King, was judged to be the best by a judging panel of world-renowned photographers Stuart Franklin, Ian Berry, Art Wolfe and Massimo Vitali.
The bright shot was described by Stuart Franklin as 'colourful, exciting and compositionally well organised'.
Art Wolfe added: 'This is a very complex image, with a lot going on - color, line, repetition and movement. This complexity is what makes it interesting and draws me into the scene.'
Ms King said she took the photo while on holiday with her boyfriend and could barely see the screen due to the bright sunlight.
She explained: 'My boyfriend and I were travelling around Sri Lanka and we were very lucky that when we visited the temple it was decorated with the Buddhist flags.
The runners-up win a personal photography tutorial with Stuart Franklin on board Celebrity Eclipse in Southampton, while Ms King has been named Celebrity Cruises Photo Ambassador for 2014. As part of her prize, she will embark on a 14-night Scandinavia & Russia cruise, with her smartphone photos of each port added to the Celebrity Cruises blog.
