Weekly photo contest: Paths

This weekend head out and wander. Try and find a cool path near your house and take an interesting picture. That's our theme for this week's photography contest - paths.

Winner from last week

We had a ton of good entries into last week's "green" contest, but I had to settle on the one I liked the most. Thanks to all who entered, you're all very talented! Head to the forums to check out all the other entries. This week's winner is...


Green Winner

Congrats to D3V011 for his winning picture of jellyfish at Houston's downtown aquarium. He shot it using his Lumia 1520 and edited with Adobe Photoshop Express on Windows Phone. The tank lights slowly cycled through different hues, this cool photograph was grabbed during a moment of green.


Paths are all around us and come in man different forms. You might find a path made of dirt, gravel, cement or some other material. We want to see the kinds of paths you take on your feet (or maybe bike), so no major roads or anything like that.

The path above is from San Capistrano in southern California. It was shot on my Lumia 1520 and slightly edited in Photoshop for Windows Phone. I just adjusted the vibrance a bit to get the blues to pop a little bit more.


Rules are going to be just like last week. Here they are:

  • Picture must be taken with a Windows Phone
  • Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread (linked below)
  • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software or apps you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine, this is art
  • Feel free to add a little back story, we want to know how the picture came to be
  • You must have used a valid email address to register here at Windows Phone Central, so I know how to contact the winner
  • Only ONE entry per week per person


We're going to continue our social experiment from last week. Share any pictures you take for the contest on Instagram, Twitter and Fhotoroom using the following hashtags. It's a fun way to at a glance check out your competition and get inspiration. Plus we're building a community of Windows Phone mobile photographers!

Here's how it looks this week.

  • #WCpc
  • #PathWC

This doesn't count as your entry; it's just a fun way to track the photos on social media. Your entry still needs to be in the forums!


One winner will get a $25 gift card to the Windows Phone Store. You can use it to buy apps and games in the Windows Phone Store, Windows Store or Xbox Store.

We'll pick a winner Tuesday night (November 25) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the contest next week.

Quick PSA: We've set up dedicated sub-forum in the Windows Phone Central forums to keep the photo contests in one location going forward. You should bookmark this page, so you never miss a contest.

Good luck and have fun!
