The December Contest is scheduled to launch tomorrow! The theme will be "Capturing December"

It is designed to be open for interpretation as "Capturing December" can mean different things to different people.  That said, to serve as some guidance and inspiration December brings to mind words and phases we all might think of during December... Giving, Being Grateful, Reflection(s), Being Present, Kindness, Anticipation, Red & Green, Lights, Family, Friends, Memories, Traditions, Snow, Winter Wonderland, Warm by the fire, Getaways and of course wishes of Peace, Love and Happiness....to name a few.  

Stay tuned - it launches tomorrow!

Announcing the Winners of the Minimalism Photography Contest

 

Congratulations to the winners of September's Minimalism Photography Contest!

 

Minimalism Photography Contest Winners

This month's guest judge is photo.net moderator Bob Atkins. Here is a note from Bob after he reviewed all of the excellent images that were submitted this month:

"There were many interesting and well crafted images submitted for this contest, including a few that might perhaps not be quite minimalist. One of the goals of the minimalists was to create works of art that made the most out of the least and which stand on their own as the art rather than referring to anything else. In photography that's more difficult to do than in painting because in photography you are always referring to some real object. I thought the winning entry captured this idea best, though the honorable mentions were very strong contenders. I thank all of those who entered images in this contest - I enjoyed viewing your work."

Water Photography Contest Winners

Grand Prize Winner, selected by guest judge Keri Friedman of Lensbaby

Prize: Composer Pro with Sweet 50 Optic lens
Photographer: John Hill
"Perdido Key Art"

from Keri Friedman: "This image utilizes the gorgeous light hitting the waves and the watermarks on the sand to draw the eye through the image. The composition is spot-on, and even though the boy and his father are the subject of the image, the water is as well and completes it nicely."
