Photo Challenge Winners

A huge thank you to all who participated in August’s Photo Challenge, entitled “From A Distance”. Our challenge was sponsored by Rocky Nook Books and Petra Vogt, who provided us with some awesome books prizes. Once again there was a strong field, and the judges had a hard time picking between the entries. Ultimately, these ones were hand picked as winners:

  • Matthew – with his submission, “Seagulls in sky”.
    The theme talks about watching from a distance, which the seagull is certainly doing (watching the other gull and everything else from the sky), but we as the viewer are also seeing the seagull from a distance. It’s a nice exposure, with the the seagull in sharp focus against an interesting sky. The details of the seagull (wings, feet, shadow on the belly) are excellent.Seagulls in sky

    Matthew picks up a Rocky Nook book entitled “Create Your Own Photo Book: Design a Stunning Portfolio, Make a Bookstore-Quality Book” by Petra Vogt, worth $39.95 USD. Congratulations Matthew!

  • Louie Nepomuceno was also selected at random to receive a prize for Liking our page on Facebook. He also picks up a Rocky Nook book for his efforts.

Honourable mentions also go to:

    • smarti77’s Colourful bird in tree for a wonderfully colourful and sharp image that missed on the theme.
    • NT73’s Infinity for a nice picture of clouds in the sky.
