Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing abstract subjects in the What Is This Photo Contest with chances to win awesome prizes like a Canon 20D DSLR Camera and more!

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Lorenz Holder for his collaboration as guest judge in this photo contest: "I grew up in Munich, close to the Bavarian mountains, and it is those mountains that have always played a major role in my life. I was fascinated by photos that could describe a whole scene, a whole story or even a whole day, in just one small moment caught on film. This fascination was one of the biggest motivations for me to start my career as a professional photographer. Right now I work as senior photographer for Pleasure Snowboard Magazine and as a staff photographer for Nitro Snowboards."

Congratulations Grand Jury Winner "Ice Macro" by Alexander_Sviridov

"This picture is outstanding. I don’t know how the color came into the ice, but it’s a really good way to show ice in a very abstrac way. If it wouln’t say „Ice Macro“ I would have no idea that this is ice. Also a very good composition in terms of how the frozen bubbles are aligned in the framing. A well deserved 1st place." - Lorenz Holder

Congratulations Runner Up "Thermal Pool" by Athena_B

"It’s very difficult to find ne angles on locations that have been shoot an uncountable times. I just like the way how you recognize the location but at the same time the shots offers something new and fresh. The composition of the lines and the colors work really harmonic. Truely a great picture." - Lorenz Holder

Congratulations Runner Up "Water splash" by ScottELB

"To be honest - I still have no idea if this is a giant waterfall or some really small water dripping down in the streets. It could just be both. That’s what surprised me and made me think a lot about the picture. This is really an abstract way of showing this waterfall - be it giant or tiny - well done!" - Lorenz Holder
