We built a photo contest that was looking for your best shots to illustrate the idea of "build," and dozens of entries filled up the forums that did just that. A great variety of different styles of photos came in, and we were able to eventually narrow it down to the two that will receive prizes. Read along with us and see the winning entries!
Winner of a ZENS Qi Wireless 4500mAh Power Bank, schizrade!
The angle of this shot from down below really makes the buildings seem taller with the blue sky blanketing the background, and the street sign sneaking in in the corner gives it a neat little bit of perspective. Taken with a Nexus 5 and edited in Google+ Photos — well done!
Winner of a ZENS Qi Wireless 4500mAh Power Bank, Damien_Starr!
The dark scene and fog make this shot kind of ominous, but you also see that the clouds are blanketing a new dock being constructed, which really comes out once you look at it for a little while. It's well framed and we love how many levels of interesting subject matter are here. Taken with a Galaxy S6 — nicely done!
If you've won this contest, keep an eye on your email inbox for information on how we'll get the prize out to you. It may take some time to get to everyone, so please be patient while you wait to be contacted.
Thanks again to everyone else who entered, and keep your eyes peeled for the next photo contest. We want the chance to give away more great prizes to everyone, so keep taking pictures and entering them!
