Microsoft Windows Phone Monthly Photo Contest - Pet Photos

Microsoft held its first Windows Phone Monthly Photo Contest last month. The first contest them was pet photos and Microsoft received hundreds of photo entries.

After sifting through them all the Windows Team Blog staff picked a handful of entries that stood out for their creativity and execution.  These photos are  highlighted the Blog's website and include the above photo by Max. K which was taken with a HTC Mozart.

There is no word on what the contest theme will be for this month but once we catch wind of it, we'll pass it on. In the meantime, if you're sharing photos via Twitter, use the hashtag #WPPhoto and Microsoft may highlight them on their official handle.

You can find the full selection of pet photos here at the Windows Team Blog website and some of our favorites after the break.

Nope Pricop is right I had a HTC Mozart first and now a Lumia 800 and the Nokia is awful the auto focus is shite deff won't be getting a Nokia wp8

I don't have a Lumia at all, but have used one extensivly. No camera issues at all. My pic was a winner :) but was shot with my personal device, my trusty focus.

How many times do I use the camera? Sometimes How many times do I use the NOKIA EXCLUSIVE APPS? Everyday. I don't care about the camera but the functionality of the phone. And tomorrow that "camera problem" will be addressed with the Lumia Pureview. Now Nokia will have the best software in camera PLUS the exclusive apps and a INSPIRED design. (Not trying to defend Nokia just saying)

Apps exclusive or not don't bother me but a poor camera is a dealbreaker for me, and so pureview might make nice pics but that's not to say it will have a decent autofocus system.

Yes because i am talking about how slow it is to autofocus its pathetic but yeah if you willing to wait around and your taking a photo of something static then it would be ok.
