Hundreds of entries and thousands of votes later, you all have made the tough choice of picking the best photo that both fit the theme "My Neighborhood" and was an interesting, well-composed shot. Your choice was "Paesan and his Picciones", a simple black-and-white photo -- and a classic city neighborhood image -- of a man feeding pigeons ("picciones") in the North End.

This first-place honor earns the photographer, mecr22, a $100 American Express gift card. Second Place (and a $50 gift card) goes to mfitzy24 for the haunting "The Friendship After Dark" photo of a ship at anchor in Salem Harbor, and the $25 gift card for Third Place is awarded to kseiffer for her quiet, reflective shot of the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester.

The gallery also contains seven Honorable Mentions to round out the Top Ten. Don't forget that October's contest, with the theme "Get Close", is in full swing; here's how to enter one of your closeups.

The full slate of winners (try out "Full-screen"):

For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops

Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
