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...

D3V011

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

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

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

Social

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!

Prize

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!

  • I'll try again, congratulations to the winner
  • So.  How do we upload our photos?  The instructions say Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread (linked below) But I must be dense or something because I don't get it.  Are we supposed to post our pictures in the comments?  Or is there an upload link somewhere that I'm just not seeing?  
  • There are links... If you're not sure, just open this post in the browser...
  • Actually, I did see the link and clicked it but it appeared to just be linking to another article.  I didn't realize that was a forum post, because there weren't any replies yet. Now it makes more sense.  Thanks!
  • Awesome winning shot! Congrats D3V011.

  • Guys... Go to the forum... Page down near the bottom... There is a Photography sub-forum... Enter the Photo Contests area and post your pic in the thread for this theme. You either have to be on a PC or use Tapatalk from mobile.
  • Oh, there's a forum to post the pics.  Now, why wasn't that explained in the article with a link to the forum?  Too much to ask?
  • It was and there is... Sorry you missed it on the first read through. I guess it's old news to some.

  • Is this contest only for high end lumia's ?? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android

  • Would their be some other type of thing that we can take a picture of?
  • There is a new theme each week... This week it has to be Paths. Last week was Green, before that Autumn. Next week it might be Dinner or The Loch Ness Monster. This week there is "no other type of thing" except Paths.

  • Off topic.
    What ever happened to vlc?
    It was said that it would come early THIS week. Is it too early? Or is it not this week?
  • Try using the forum to post these questions. They have an area to discuss Apps. Or the Ask a Question Section The great thing about the forum is that there is an area for any particular subject. http://forums.windowscentral.com/ See, that way, you get your question in front of people who care about and are informed on the subject you want to talk about. You get an actual dialog going and others can read about it and join in. SPAMming article comment areas means a lot of people NOT interested in or thinking about your unrelated question don't really care to answer you. Would you eat your dinner out of a cement mixer? Would you mix cement on your dining room table? Use the right tool for the job.
