Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best shots of castles in this photo contest with chances at a Spinlight 360 Extreme and more.

A special thanks to friend, professional photographer and viewbug collaborator Kavan Cardoza for his participation as a guest judge in this photo contest. Known in the photography and art world as Kavan the Kid, he is a conceptual photographer specializing in Dark Surrealism. Kavan uses his photography as an outlet for exploring his emotions, his own personal experiences, and overall outlook on humanity. Kavan takes the real and raw emotions that one encounters when dealing with depression and puts a dark, surrealist twist on them. Photography has always been Kavan's therapy. His escape.
