Join me in congratulating the winner of last weeks photo contest, jumboadam. This picture of an old railing, taken with the Motorola Droid X, really captures the ideas of shape and texture, is nice and clear, and visually appealing. Those are the kinds of pics we're looking for each week. Nice work jumboadam, watch the email inbox you used to register for the site for info about your prize.

The entries this week were absolutely amazing, as many a comment in the contest thread agrees with. We'll have a new one set up soon, so keep practicing and playing with the different settings and effects on your Android camera. We like it when you guys "wow" us! Hit the break to see the rest of the top 10, in no particular order.

Thanks so much! :D may be an old phone, but still makes me, and apparently others, happy!(:

Again, the ones I thought were better didn't make the cut.. There were quite a few nicer shot photos than some of the above, not to mention some don't even match the theme "shapes and textures".
Like the snail on the cars hood, while it's a great photo, I don't see where it falls into the theme. Same with the bundle of Cat 5 cables..
Now the picture of the toad had texture, great photo. Or the "sky walk", shapes and textures. Frogdod's "Blue Keyboard" was even a better choice theme-wise.

The fact that this photo didn't win or even make the top & is ridiculous, clearly the best of the lot in my opinion.

Personally I don't see how you can even compare that pic with the winner. They are not even in the same league!

I do agree that most of the winners don't seem to "match the theme" as they're mainly textures and no shapes, but then again I guess everything is its own shape.

However, I will say the photos are still great and worthy of praise. Still some amazing shots in the thread, too. I even contributed this week. Congrats to all the winners. :)

I thought my entry would have done better than it did, there was all kinds of shapes and textures going on( https://www.dropbox.com/s/1y5177b5revxft1/2012-04-18-15-34-51.jpg ).....Not complaining by any means tho and congrats to the winner/top10!!! pretty awesome to see what these near pinhole sized cams can do.

xeroslash says:

As soon as I saw it in the thread I knew this had to be top 10 if not the winner. Nice job. EXCELLENT shot!

Joet says:

Top ten is great! I'm looking forward to the next contest.
