Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "spiral staircase" by elmerjensen

spiral staircase by elmerjensen - Shapes and Lines Photo Contest

"The absolute perfect time of day to capture this subject. The framing to include the entirety of the long shadows is a testament to that excellent timing. The yellow door certainly made this image stand out." - Mark Gvazdinskas 

Congratulations Runner Up "LIGHTSCAPES_01" by intheloupe

LIGHTSCAPES_01 by intheloupe - Shapes and Lines Photo Contest

"Another fantastic shot adding a human element. The subjects are quite isolated but the shadows perfectly fill the frame, while keeping your eyes on those navigating the steep staircase. Part of what I like so much about this image is the vast amount of grey tones with the human element walking out towards the light." - Mark Gvazdinskas 

Congratulations People's Choice "Life lines" by Rollier

Life lines by Rollier - Shapes and Lines Photo Contest

"Choosing to silhouette the subject here was absolutely brilliant. The vertical lines on the right at a geometric contrast that takes this image to the next level." - Mark Gvazdinskas
