Travel Photography Competition – week 16

Hello everybody and welcome to the 16th edition of our weekly Travel Photography Competition featuring photos sent between 1st and 7th October. Once again we’ve had a fantastic response from all of you and with each passing week the quality of photographs that are put on our Facebook wall continues to amaze us. So much so, that it has inspired us to create a new photography challenge, set around a theme. The first being the Shop Window  – HHH Photo Challenge. Simply send us your favourite shop window photos with the best being shown right here on HHH.

Back to this week’s competition where we have three more stunning photos to enjoy, so please join us as we take you through this week’s winners:

The first winning photo shows Heeswijk Castle, Netherlands seen from its gardens. The castle, originally built in the 11th century, played a crucial role in the history of the Netherlands. It is now a museum devoted to the life and traditions of the 19th century.

This beautiful HDR photo was sent by Michiel Buijse, a photographer based in Tilburg, Netherlands. Visit his Facebook page for more stunning shots!

The second winner is a lovely sunset photo taken at the old castle in Porto Germeno, Greece. This great image was taken by Vagelis Pikoulas, a photographer who needs no introduction to our small community. To see more of Vagelis’ photos, visit our Travel Photography Contributions week 7, week 10, week 11, week 13, week 14 and week 15 or subscribe to his Facebook profile for more stunning shots.

And the last winning photo is another great shot from the Netherlands, taken right in the capital. Amsterdam looks very charming at night.

Never before did we have in our competition a winning photo from Netherlands; you wait for one, then two come along.

This atmospheric image was sent by FG Photography. Visit their page for more beautiful photos which come mostly from Ireland.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s edition of the competition, either by sending or by voting for the pictures! We wish you nice end of the weekend!
