For our A Connected World Photo Quest with, we asked you to show us your best photos of connections. From photos of emotional interactions between people to images of structures, your submissions truly impressed us. We loved seeing all your creative metaphors for connections! If you haven’t already, connect a .com domain name to your 500px portfolio for an instant website and make it easy for people to find your portfolio online.

Though we had a difficult time picking the winner, the grand prize goes to Jaromír Chalabala for his photo Waiting for sun. This lucky photographer will receive an iPhone 6S and a Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera with a 1YR Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan.
