It’s no news to us that the community here at 500px is incredibly talented. So when we asked you to get creative with symmetry in our “Symmetry” Photo Quest, we weren’t one bit surprised by the quality of the images you came up with. Nearly 15,000 photos were submitted and reviewed by our very own team of 500px Content Editors, who had the near-impossible job of narrowing down the best of the best, and choosing one lucky winner to receive the grand prize: The Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Edge 50 Optic lens, courtesy of Lensbaby!

Without further ado, we present to you our shortlist of favorite Symmetry images…and of course, your winner!
