Another solid set of pictures showing off a variety of styles and subjects
It's Wednesday, and that means it's time to show off the winning photo contest entries from the previous week. In another extremely successful contest, we received hundreds of entries with more great photos than we could shake a stick at. With a broad prompt such as "wood" there was no shortage of great subject matter out there to take pictures of, and you clearly took advantage.
We had the opportunity to pick five winners this week, each of whom will receive a Chromecast for their winning photo entry. Hit the break and check out the winning submissions for this week's contest.
Winner of a Chromecast, luke31!
Like a scene from a movie, this picture is just framed perfectly. We love both the big, dead tree that's propping up the bike and the deep dispersed woods behind it. This picture was taken with a Droid DNA and fixed up a bit with PicSay Pro. Awesome picture.
Winner of a Chromecast, GadgetGator!
Black and white photography doesn't work for every picture, but it definitely worked to great effect here. It sets off the wood grain and all of the intricate carving marks in the sculptures, giving the whole picture a cool look. Great shot!
Winner of a Chromecast, swallowingled!
This picture shows off big wood beams in the roof of an old church. We love the off-centered nature of what would otherwise be a very symmetrical photo. It shows off the wood grain without being super busy. Awesome perspective.
Winner of a Chromecast, CaseyCR!
On the other end of the black-and-white spectrum, we have this awesome close-up shot of a set of colored pencils. Everything in the background simplyl just fades away when you look at the intricate detail on the foreground pencils. Great shot.
Winner of a Chromecast, mookiekillsit!
This is an extremely interesting picture because it is dominated by the close-up wood, with just two small peeks through the holes to other subject matter in the back. The littlle bits of snow filling the holes just adds another bit of depth to it. Awesome picture.
Keep an eye on your doorsteps and mailboxes for a package, the Chromecasts 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!
