And the winner is…
Through October, November and December I ran a small photo contest specifically for photos taken in those months. The prize is a $60 credit towards having a custom-made fine art print made in my studio. This service is available to all photographers who are tired of machine prints and would like a print that truly shows off their skills and vision as a photographer. I use pigment inks on fine art watercolour paper and the result is simply beautiful.
Don’t forget – if you subscribe to my newsletter or this blog, you get 20% off your first fine print order! Visit my website for details.
Okay, that’s enough of the shameless self-promotion! The dozens of entries I received for the contest spanned the whole range from flora to fauna, colour to black and white, straight photography to abstract. Some of the photos were “people shots”; being a nature and outdoor contest, I haven’t included any of those, but thanks for sending them just the same.
There were many wonderful photographs, so here is just a sample:
So what to do about a “winner”? The contest was, specifically for “the best” photo – a very difficult decision, indeed. That honour goes to Paul Lamb of Guelph, Ontario for the wonderful photo shown at right. However, given the consistent level of excellent work across all the photos submitted, I’m going to upgrade Paul’s prize to a $75 credit for my fine art printing service and add one more prize – the original $60 credit for fine art printing. That prize is going to Lyne Rosenkrantz of Hamilton for the photo shown below – nicely done, Lyne!
Congratulations and Thanks You! to all who submitted photographs. What do you think about a Winter Nature Photo Contest? Send me your best winter nature photograph – one with snow in it – via email to email@example.com. After the winter months are over (January-February-March) I will select the best photo for a $60 credit for my fine art printing service.
