Last weekend, users turned the color spectrum upside down with PicsArt’s Hue Effect in a contest that attracted a heaping 3,038 entries.

The Hue Effect allows users to isolate a color in a photo, then change it to whatever they like. We saw purple fields, blue kittens, pink peacocks, and all sorts of other stunning images.

Voters truly had their hands full, but the final ballots have at last been cast. The verdicts are in, and today we’re ready to announce our top 10 winning entries!

In first place was Cristian Pasquini (@cristianpasquini) with one of the Contest’s more understated entries. This silhouetted horse against a violet-streaked sky took in 98 votes for the win.

Our Jury’s pick of the best use of the Hue Effect was this creative entry by Sharon Randle (@cr4zydiamond). This alien landscape took a beautiful swath of nature and imbued it with colors you would never find in a field on this planet.
