Weekly Photo Contest: Yellow

We commissioned photo entries that dominantly used the color yellow, and the response was fantastic as always. Dozens of great entries poured into the forums, showing off every shade and interpretation of "yellow."

We have three lovely pictures to look at this week and three prizes to give away — read along and see the winning submissions.

We absolutely love the perspective and detail in this picture, drawing your eye directly to the front rows of wheat with the rest fading off smoothly. Yellow is naturally a dominant color here with the hills in the background just providing some contrast. This was taken with a Galaxy S4 — great picture.

What an absolutely stunning shot here of yellow ink used for screen printing. The complete lack of uniformity and all of the different lights, shadows and different intensities of color really make this picture pop. Taken with an LG G2 and edited in Snapseed, this was a worthy winner.

The "yellow" nature of this picture is a bit more subtle, but does the job of following the prompt just as well. The warm sunset casting onto these stacked rocks is wonderful, and the additional blur effect in the background helps bring your eye right to the light. Now for the fun part — this picture was taken with a Nexus 7. Great one.

The ShopAndroid gift cards are on their 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!

Congrats to the winners! I especially love the wheat. I considered entering our wheat, but I couldn't since it hasn't turned golden yet. :P

Got Nexus?

Congrats! Impressed that the last one was taken with an N7. People are always making fun of cameras on tablets.

The fact that the last one was taken with a nexus 7 makes it all the more impressive.

Congrats to the winners!

Thanks guys! Yeah usually the camera on tablets aren't as impressive, but I've gotten some great pictures out of this Nexus 7!

While I agree pictures one and two are mighty fine, I believe the picture of the child on the wet sidewalk with the yellow fire hydrant and yellow curb was spectacular.
