A dizzying view of an inspection team member rappelling from one of the world's largest telescopes has captured the grand prize in Paint BidTracker's 10th Anniversary Photo Contest.

"Green Bank Telescope, West Virginia," taken by Anthony Schoenecker and submitted by Mike Beitzel, received the most popular votes since the final round of the contest started in the first week of November.

Paint BidTracker collected a total of 687 votes for the contest.

The Winning Photo

Schoenecker is a field services engineer and inspector with Modjeski and Masters in New Orleans, LA. Every two years, the company inspects the coatings, welds, and structure of the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia.

After rappelling down from the 480-foot-high structure—the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope—Schoenecker snapped this photo of another team member descending.

The winner of Paint BidTracker's photo contest will be honored at SSPC 2013.

"The whole scene is so picturesque and beautiful; it's just so easy to get a good shot up there," said Schoenecker.

Coincidentally, the photo was shot with the same camera being awarded in the contest: an Olympus TOUGH TG-1 iHS digital camera.

In addition to the camera, Schoenecker also gets two admission passes to SSPC 2013 featuring GreenCOAT in San Antonio, TX, on Jan. 14-17, 2013.

Runners-Up

Runners-up included "Taiwan Bridge" by Leka Huie and "Train Bridge" by Brent Baker.

A total of 130 submitted photos were narrowed down to six finalists, before a popular vote decided the winner and two runners-up, "Train Bridge" (left) and "Taiwan Bridge" (right).

Last month, a panel of judges, which included Paint BidTracker and JPCL editors, selected six finalists to compete for the grand prize. The finalists were chosen from 130 photos submitted to the Project Showcase between Sept. 10 and Nov. 1.

Judges looked for photos that captured the creativity and beauty of industrial and commercial structures and the hard work that goes into painting them.
