Thank you to all the photographers that shared their photos showing benches in this photo contest. The creativity behind the gallery in this competition blew our minds as benches can be an uneventful subject if not considering various elements to successfully create a good photograph. The gallery within this contest displays amazing captures of benches from all around the world and all sort of locations, from snow and ice to warm beaches; be sure to browse all the submissions!

A special thanks to all the photographers that voted for their favorite shot helping us find the People's Choice and to friend & professional photographer, Robin Layton, for her collaboration as a guest judge!
