FIRST PLACE - $100

Alphanikonrex - Schuylar

Comment by judge David Ryan of the Globe staff: "The composition is great, there's wonderful lighting, and the pony looks like it is interacting with the photographer. It's really a nice moment."

(Ed. Note: alphanikonrex is 14-year-old Arman Bilge of Lexington, whose portfolio of photos underwent a Globe Critique by staff photographer Yoon Byun in July, and who captured 3rd place in our Spring Sports contest in June of 2009.)

SECOND PLACE - $50

Cool HDR (ChrisPokorny) - Catch Me If You Can

David's comment: "This is an excellent grouping. Nice cropping as well, with no paws or ears cut off. I also like the near-square format. Very effective."

(Ed. Note: Chris placed 2nd in our May "Landscapes" contest.)

THIRD PLACE - $25

suzfoldsfive - Play Ball

David's comment: "Another great moment that depicts the interaction between a dog and a human, but shown in shadow. Very creative. Not sure I like the vignetting around the edges, possibly from a lens hood, but that's not a big deal; it captured a really wonderful moment."

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....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
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?...
