I went to Waveland, Mississippi a couple weeks ago to re-photograph Hurricane Katrina scenes for this video story, and took some 8x10 prints along to help line things up (like clues in a treasure hunt, the prize being views of interesting change). In this case, the print matched, and on a whim I shot this picture using ShakeItPhoto, an iPhone app that mimics a Polaroid camera. I hadn't thought to publish it until a fellow editor suggested we ask your opinion: is it worthwhile to publish cell phone pictures? Does it matter if they've been altered by an imaging app?

An oak tree that survived Hurricane Katrina in Waveland, Miss., is still there five years later, though the house beyond it has been rebuilt.
