Thank you to everyone who participated in Challenge 86 "Glass". We had some varied and truly imaginative entries this week from a good cross-section of the FT community and it took us a while to whittle down the short list.


We have chosen PhotoPro as the overall winner as we just kept coming back to this picture.
The stained glass window is surely one of the most beautiful examples of glass being at the centre of art and PhotoPro does a first class job at showing us this. The diffusion of light and colour here, as well as being stunning, also highlights just how many pieces of glass are being used.

Photo Pro's winning photo is shown above; you can see the original version here in all its glory:


Second place this week goes to Danisto for this picture of a functional use of glass. Itís one of those images which makes you really stare at it to see what it is. The perspective from above is a good way of showing just how thick the test tubes are.


In third place is Jatmoko with this excellent broken lightbulb, which shows us how glass can be used to protect that which is within. The shell of the bulb being broken, highlights the sharpness and texture of the jagged glass.



We have chosen 7 clever and quirky Honourable Mentions this week. In no particular order:

Gafawayís nostalgic marbles:


Grimacherís never-ending skyscraper:


JonAtís ever so slightly macabre wine glass:


Marijke06ís glass wall in Groningen:


Archerís reading glasses:


Lanny62ís textured vase:


And finally, another functional use for glass courtesy of Mariolina Ė beer receptacles!



Well done to everybody and thanks for taking part. We did enjoy looking through all the photographs.
