Weekly Photo Contest: Trees

It turns out that the prompt of "trees" for this latest photo contest was a popular one, making it tough for us to pick just two winners. Eight full pages of entries filled up the forums with beautiful shots of trees from every angle and situation. In the end we narrowed it down and picked two, though it felt like we could've picked twenty. Read along and see the winners this week.

Weekly Photo Contest: Trees winner

Not exactly an angle we all see trees from — assuming you shy away from putting your face right on the bark. We love the effect the shallow depth of field adds to this one really accentuating the height. Taken with a Galaxy S4.

The beautiful foggy background and focus on the nearest tree really makes this shot stand out. We love how the colors of the leaves really pop against the soft background — what a wonderful scene. Taken with a Galaxy Note 3.
