Flower Photo Contest Winners

Posted: June 28, 2017 in Uncategorized
As always it is very hard to judge this contest as so many amazing images are sent in.  There were so many images that were very close to being in the winners, but they may have been 95 percent perfect, but I spotted some little thing that I didn’t like that caused them not to win, but they were so close.  The ones I picked had a combination of a good subject, composed well, and something I like about the post processing.
I would also like to thank the sponsors for donating prizes for this contest.
