Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos showing the power of technology in the High Tech Photo Contest with chances to win an amazing bundle!

I chose the following images based on the following:

1. Photographic merit (composition, lighting, post production)

2. Emotive response - favouring images with a concept.

3. Success at meeting the brief - A view of today's technology through the lens. This was an area where many of the images fell flat as they were looking at historical technology.

A special thanks to friend and professional photographer Jon Reid for his collaboration as a guest judge: "I first took a camera with me on a trip, it was to share this emotion with others. Without changing the truth of a scene, I try capture it at its most magical, waiting for the atmosphere to best compliment the scene. Photography has become a way for me to communicate the awe and curiosity I experience when exploring the world. With clients like Expedia, Getty Images, Condé Nast Traveller and Triptease, I’m blessed to have a career as a traveller."

Grand Jury Winner

"Appealing, atmospheric image. To me, the concept is clear that technology allows us to explore and go places that should be inaccessible. I love the motion in the image and I love how the lighting of the vehicle forms a clear focal point on the vehicle." - Jon Reid

Finalist

"I enjoy that the photographer has explored the phenomenon of gaming through a conceptual image - showing the feeling of levitating or flying whilst gaming. The casting is well done as the subject is the perfect person for the role. The balance of the lighting on the subject, the room and the tv is well done too." - Jon Reid

Runner Up

"Beautiful use of lines and complimentary colours. The image verges on being under exposed, which brings out the colour and silhouettes the people. This image shows the beauty of modern technology and also one of the weaknesses - the separation from community and other people." - Jon Reid

Runner Up

"A few key factors make this image powerful - the first is the subject matter, CERN, the leading edge of technology. Second, the person included not only shows the scale, but almost gives a feeling of showing technology dwarfing humans. Finally, the black and white treatment takes out any warmth there may have been in the scene, giving it a menacing feel." - Jon Reid
