    Bike lane crossing. Taken with an Honor 5X.

    Perhaps one of the most abundant building materials, you encounter various types of concrete every single day. Whether it's in its raw form, covered up, painted, integrated with something else or not yet formed and in use, there are plenty of interesting angles to see concrete from that are worth taking pictures of. We want to see your best shots of concrete for this contest.

    We'll be picking out three winners for this contest, with each winner taking home a new Chromecast!

    Entering is easy. Just drop your entry in a post below. Tell us what Android you used to get the picture, and any back story you want to add to it. We'll pick a winner Tuesday (February 9) night at 11:59 PM ET, and announce them on the blog with the next contest.

    • Pictures must be taken with an Android device
    • Pictures must be uploaded to the contest thread. I'm not running all over the Internet to track them down.
    • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine — this is art.
    • Feel free to add a little back story — we want to know how the picture came to be.
    • You must have used a valid email address to register here at AC, so I know how to contact the winner.
    • Only one entry per contest per person.

    Good luck, everyone!

    If you are using the ac app it's a app issue that they know about but have yet to fix. Probably never will. I have the same problem. I have to enter from a computer.

    I took this on my Nexus 5 while playing around with the Lens Blur Feature in Google Camera, while walking home in Lincoln, Nebraska. Unedited except for crop and Lens Blur in camera app.

    At the bottom of the English coastline you can find stunning cliff tops with views out to sea, and cut into one of those cliffs is an outdoor theatre called the Minack Theatre.
    A mass of concrete built to seat guests and stage actors against a stunning backdrop, the Minack theatre is a great example of how Concrete can be used to create something spectacular.

    "The Long Thaw"

    My sidewalk 3 days after over 2 feet of snow. Was taking my dog for a walk and loved how the setting sun reflected off the remaining snow, the grass begging to peak out, and the melted snow trickling down the sidewalk.

    Taken with my Nexus 6P, stock camera app and no filter. No editing needed.

    I realize it's an asphalt shot- when searching for "concrete" on Google Photos- this comes up. Silly Google. Oh well- its my submission.

    This was taken in early October 2015 during our roadtrip across Colorado. It was the perfect time to witness the leaves in transition. I had to be quick about taking the shot since I was laying down in the street. My wife was keeping an eye out for traffic. Good times.

    Android Central Photo Contest: Concrete-malvin-uruguay-20151122_095330-collage.jpg

    In November 2015 I used an LG G3 to make photos of the variety of concrete sidewalk tiles
    underfoot in Malvin, Montevideo, Uruguay, where tiles and not large concrete slab are the norm.

    The hors d'oeuvres (assembled from a supermercado in Malvin) in the upper-left corner are just for fun
    and in homage to the tiles' square-within-square motif. The collage itself is a 3 x 3 tilling like most
    of these concrete tiles.

    I used Google Photo's image tools to adjust most of the images and then to construct the collage.

    This picture pretty much speaks for itself. I took it this morning while I was waiting for my wife at her doctor's appointment. This is the Brewery District of New Westminster, BC, which is currently undergoing an extensive redevelopment.
    Taken with my beloved Nexus 5 with the Google camera app and some Pixlr blur and enhancement.

    World's highest concrete steel composite arch bridge - Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge - at the Hoover Dam.

    Shot on LG V10(auto), and edited in Snapseed. I love the manual mode with RAW images on the LG V10, but I was the passenger in a moving car and getting the tinted window down in time for this angle and composition was lucky, definitely would have missed it spending the typical 5-10 extra seconds that I take in manual mode. My phone also had auto-HDR on which I hate and always forget to have turned off for auto mode, but I'd rather more detail seen of the bridge and be forgiving of the bit of over processed halo along the edges that resulted from having shot in Auto-HDR mode.

    My studio works with concrete a lot. Here is a table base and 6 foot round top we finished last week made entirely of concrete. The base is hollow and a separate piece from the top. The entire table clocks in at 725 pounds. Photo taken with Note 5 and cropped with Snapseed.

    Panoramic shot of one of the now abandoned power stations built into the cliff at Niagara Falls. This one was on the Canadian side of the river, and shot with a Droid Bionic while on one of the tour boats (so moving and the mist really hurt the shot). The history of these power stations are pretty interesting. For urban explorers, there's a site that documented an explorer's trip through the abandoned building, even going into the sealed off water tunnels and such. The images from inside were downright spooky in parts. Here's the article, with pics at the end. Ontario Generating Station | Vanishing Point
