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.

Android Central weekly photo contest winner: Shapes and texture


I won the contest the week before and all I can say is your pic is AMAZING! Glad I was not up against you this week!!

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.

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. :)
