Holiday Photo Contest

The ninth of 14 winners in our extra-long photo contest

Day nine of our Holiday Photo Contest closed out last night, and that means we have another Android mini collectible to give away to one contest submission. We again received dozens of photos for today's drawing, but in the end we had to pick just one.

Hit the break to see today's winner, and be sure to get your entry into the contest thread in the forums if you haven't yet participated. Good luck!

Winner of an Android mini collectible, ILLmatic173!

Holiday Photo Contest Winner

Hard to say that the Nexus 5 takes bad pictures when we see example shots like this isn't it? This shot of the Radio City Music Hall lit up with a giant Christmas tree is a great use of HDR, and we think it captures that holiday spirit perfectly. Amazing photo!

Thanks again for your entries, and be sure to submit your holiday picture for a chance to win your own collectible.

It's off by default and a bit hidden. Hold down your finger in the camera app.. Some symbols appear. Without taking your finger off slide to the leftmost one and let go.

Why they couldn't have just made it a menu option is anybody's guess...
