Great images. But I can see the 500px logo only on the second (house with lightened windows) and on the 4-th (long exposure) images. From my opinion the whole point was just to creatively show the logo not just a part of it or not a logo at all. : S

First of all.... Congrats for all contestants !!!!
Although I enjoyed the pictures on birthday contest very much, you got the point, Alekesei.
There were two different articles on the blog which explained the birthday contest rules as follows,
"Take a photo that interprets 500px logo in a creative & clever way"
*** Photos will be judged on creativity and photo techniques.
*** Photos will be judged on originality and inventiveness.
Well....... from the start, the rules for the contest were not very clear and confusing.
It seemed that many contestants understood the rules in different way. Cheers !
