This was a throwback week, of sorts, as we were looking for your best "vintage" photos in order to take home prizes in the latest photo contest. Four full pages in the forums filled up with entries showing all sorts of cool old items, from trains to coffee pots and everything in between. In the end we narrowed it down, and two folks will be getting a prize this week for their entries. Read along and see the winners for yourself.
Winner of an Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount, AntikytheraTech!
This bridge has clearly been there for a while, and we think it could use a little care to fight the discoloration on the underside. The soft edges really make the colors in the middle pop, and we really like how the entire picture is consumed by the beams. Taken with a Nexus 5 and processed in Snapseed — great picture.
Winner of an Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount, flapjacky!
Most of us have moved on to CF and LED bulbs, but there's a soft spot in our hearts for these old-school light bulbs. This close-up shot gives us a great look at the inner-workings, and reminds us of the intricacies of these old items. This one was taken with an LG G3 and edited in Instagram — awesome picture.
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!
