Well, folks, after a slow start (and a deferred deadline), we’ve had a fantastic response to our latest photo competition. Thanks so much to all of the entrants.
It was really, really difficult to cull this lot down to a manageable size, and even if your photos didn’t make the final cut, don’t think that we didn’t enjoy seeing them and don’t appreciate the time and effort spent submitting them.
So without further ado, here are the finalists. At the end you’ll find a poll for voting. The voting period will begin today and go until Friday, November 1st, so be sure to cast your vote, and if you’re one of the finalists, beg and bribe friends, family, and followers to get behind your image.
In the past I’ve commented on the finalists’ photos, but I’ve come to think that might be prejudicial, so all I’ve provided here is a link to the entrant’s webpage or blog, if applicable.
Best of luck to all!
This one comes from Sarah at Cecilhome.
Thanks to David for this one.
Dean B sent this one in. Visit their website for loads more great stuff.
Thanks to Deborah for this shot of a mother and calf at Masai Mara reserve in Kenya.
Brad sent this one in from a recent family vacation in Florida. Wicked action shot.
Shawnee sent this one in from Hornbuckle Photography.
She may be a less than perfect mama, but Lindsay’s pretty okay in my book.
Lisa at NW Frame of Mind sent in this stunning image.
Okay, yes, I know that Kamala is overrepresented here, but holy smokes, she just sent in so many fabulous photos that I couldn’t narrow it down to one from these three. I think you’ll agree.
And finally, Tatiana sent in this shot of sunset in Greece, a perfect one on which to end.
So there you have them, peoples. A dozen amazing images from the summer. Below you’ll find the poll for voting. Good luck to all, and may the best shot win!
