Thank you to all the photographers that participated in the Geometry In Black And White Photo Contest in collaboration with Digital Silver Imaging, sharing their best photos showing geometric shapes. Congratulations to the winners and finalists, and a special round of applause for the Grand Jury Winner who wins a $200 Digital Silver Imaging Printing Credit.

A special thanks to our friend J. Sybylla Smith for her collaboration as a guest judge. Sybylla is an independent curator, educator and consultant in the photographic arts. I have exhibited over 75 international photographers in over 25 exhibitions. I teach Concept Aware: Elements of the Creative Practice, a curriculum I created to develop an idea into an image, a style and/or a body of work.

"What I look for - a well balanced composition, filling the frame with movement and mystery. In my opinion these three stood out as unique vantage points and strong stand-alone images." - J. Sybylla Smith

People's Choice

Grand Jury Winner

"This image is successful at animating the entire space with interest and pleasing contrasts. The tension between the precise angularity, undulating curves and daggers of reflected light make for a compelling composition. The imposing is balanced by replicated details captured from a unique angle." - J. Sybylla Smith

Amateur Winner

"An M.C.Escher-inspired graphic image that speaks of symmetry, repetition and reflection. It celebrates the grayscale in a harmonious landscape of pyramids. The mute-surfaces interact with light offering an infinite array of texture in the mottled stone." - J. Sybylla Smith

Runner Up

"A sweeping, disorienting, beautiful abstraction in a stunning array of gun metal grays. The delicate grid of slim, graceful black lines grounds the seemingly luffing sheets of steel. This gracefully balanced image challenges perception while defying gravity." - J. Sybylla Smith
