Congratulations to the winners of the Marginal Way Photo Contest. Winners are shown below, with comments from photographer and contest Judge, Steve Dunn.
Winter scene by Mary Beth Wilson
“Ms. Wilson did an excellent job creating a very interesting image in very difficult weather conditions. By including the red bushes covered with snow in the foreground of the image she added color and added interest to the photograph. The image is composed very well with the point of land and the building in the background. It conveys a good sense of place and captures the true sense of a winter storm.”
Summer scene by Mike Perez
“Mr. Perez created a wonderful image by incorporating several elements to create a very interesting and well composed image. The foreground Rosa Rugosa bushes with the pink rose draws you into the image and then by using the leading line of the rocks he leads your eye out to the sailboat out on the distant horizon. The various elements of the image are all in focus, the exposure is right where it should be, the horizon line is straight and all the compositional elements are there. Nicely done.”
A big thank you to everyone who submitted photos. As Steve said, “It was not an easy task to select just three images from such a wonderful collection of photographs.” See all the photos.
