The final results are in. No public voting this time, so our judge, the Globe's Lloyd Young, was on his own. But with a wealth of experience in the photo editing arena, this contest was in excellent hands.

His Top 10 selections:

Lloyd's comment: "This image is technically excellent and framed very nicely. It's an image that has dozens of moments within in it that kept me engaged and looking to discover them all. It grabbed my attention right away."


Lloyd's comment: "A solid example of an image that is layered with silhouettes throughout its framing in the foreground, middle, and background to get beyond the two dimensional feel of many photographs. The bird just taking off is the icing on the cake."


Lloyd's comment: "Another technically excellent image with a really nice peak moment happening in the frame. Really nice separation between the silhouetted subjects and the background. This is exactly the type of image that makes a silhouette work."

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?...
