Weekly Photo Contest: Bricks

We put out the request last week for all of your best "bricks" photos, and just as we've come to expect, you all delivered. We saw five whole pages of entries come into the forums for another successful photo contest, showing off a variety of styles and devices while still following the prompt.

We're glad we had the opportunity to pick more than one or two winners this week, and have four great photos that were found worthy of winning a prize.

This is a very simple picture that wouldn't normally catch the eye, but the bit of angle and the exposed faucet coming out of the wall just give it an interesting look. We like the close-up composition and the fact that it's not completely symmetrical. This was taken with an HTC One and edited with VSCO Cam.

On the other end of the spectrum, this picture isn't completely dominated by bricks, even though they fill most of the frame. The streaks of light and flowers give this shot an interesting look, and we like the use of shadows. Taken with an LG G2 and edited with Pixlr.

Then we go zoomed out to a architectural shot, but you can see why it still fits the prompt of "bricks" just as well. Your eye gets drawn all the way down the corridor, making you notice even more of the intricacies of the room. Taken with an LG G2 also, edited in Pixlr Express and Snapseed.

We were drawn to this picture because of the uneven bricks and varying colors, along with the grey peeking through that gives it a very interesting look. Sure, it's just a brick pathway, but it's different from what you usually think of when that comes to mind. Taken with a Droid RAZR — great picture.

Keep an eye out for the prizes, they're on the way!

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!

Announcing the 'Weekly Photo Contest: Bricks' winners!


I wanted to add another picture this week with a bunch of lose Lego "bricks" to do something different but never got around to it. While I love the picture I submitted I'm surprised by the win. Thanks very much!
