This was a classic case of not really understanding my topic until I saw all of your beautiful images. What I came to realize is that the art in engineering wasn't just about a particular angle or view of a structure, but more about how light, shadow, reflection, and even silhouette came to play upon the views; in other words, how you all made a view into an artistic piece.

Honorable mentions:

Simple graphic view from Markus Grompe:
Image

Another bold and graphic view, from Yaron Koler:
Image

I am not a central symmetry fan, but this keeps catching my eye from Alla Gilbourd:
Image

What a simple yet beautiful silhoutte from John Medlin:
Image

I don't know what this is, but I like it, from Alain Lastrade:
Image

We definitely need a shot of the Sydney Opera House, from Paul Dudley:
Image

Cool distortion from Steve Maz:
Image

We've taken covered bridge shots, but this has just the right amount of perspective, contrast, and shadows for my taste from Allan Hart:
Image

Dizzying perspective from Walter Koenig:
Image

Flying buttresses from Robin Lew. At first glance, kind of busy, but in original the image has flow from point to point:
Image

I like the perspective and structure, but I prefer more contrast, even with the haze. From Gill Kopy:
Image

Third Place: The colorful reflections draw my eye to this, and then spending more time I appreciate the craftsmanship of the aluminum skin, the design of the plane, and the nice painting detail on the cowling of the engine. The reflecting colors frame the subject. From Aldeca:
Image

Second Place: The spirals contrasting with the zebra stripe shadows and dramatic perspective kept me looking at this one from Markus Grompe. Best seen at original size:
Image

First Place to Tom Sherry: This is a deceptively simple image, but the more I look at it in original size, the more I like it. The tonal range is great, I like the monochrome, and I like the contrast between the simple repeating curves in the foreground versus the diverse structures and opposing curves and lines in the background. Well seen and well rendered.

Thank you Ken for the honourable mention. Congratulation to the winners!
My picture has been taken from the bottom of a surge tank of a hydroelectrical dam: it's a well, measuring 100m (300 feet) deep. You can see the nacelle going down for surveying the well.

Regards.
