Although our judge for the June contest, Globe staff photographer Bill Greene, found that the field of "Lines and Curves" entries contained some typical shots, he was very impressed with the number of "fresh looks at the commonplace. I liked the details of the natural world, lines in an old piece of wood, an infinity look of kids under a bridge.

"It was a very diverse and impressive lot," he said. "The contest had general enough parameters that it let the photographers use their imagination. I appreciated the unique vision these photographers brought to their work."


FIRST PLACE - $100

Bill wrote: "I love the simplicity and the tonality of this photo. It just was a strong, simple image that really jumped out at me. The use of black and white was really effective here. It somehow spoke to me."


SECOND PLACE - $50

Bill wrote: "This was a different look, a real attention grabber. The lines are fantastic, and the composition perfect. The photographer made great use of light. This photo makes you stop and take notice."


THIRD PLACE - $25

Bill wrote: "This photo was really interesting because of the infinity aspect to it. It had people -- the only photo in the Final 50 that did -- yet that didn't detract from the composition. After looking at buildings, trees, railroad tracks, and wood, this one stood out from the crowd. I liked that people were part of the picture, but didn't dominate it."


Here's a full-screen gallery of all Top 10 winners. Congratulations to all!

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....
