John Blanding, the Globe's assistant chief photographer who judged this month's contest, loved the range and variety of photos you submitted for the January theme of "Cold". He was impressed by the level of detail of some pictures, liked some that included a human or animal element, and marveled at the black-and-whites: "The contrast and strong tones really came across well," he said.

That bodes well for our February contest, which has B&W as its theme.

It wasn't easy narrowing the field to 50; there were many photos that were similar: Icicles, frozen leaves, frozen buds, etc. And there were plenty of gorgeous photos with vibrant colors and terrific composition, and many others that showed lots of snow, but unfortunately, they didn't necessarily speak to "cold."

In looking for photos that matched the theme, John used a bit of gut feeling: "The good photos gave me a chill when I looked at them," he said. "If they made me feel cold, then the photographer accomplished the goal of the theme."

Here are the 50 finalists (try the Full-screen link). We'll post the Voting Machine at noon.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
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....

Photography apps for your phone
