We have a WINNER!!! (of the July's Free Photo Contest)

The judges have spoken!!!

Once again, it was an almost impossible task 
to choose just ONE winner.

For those of you that need a reminder of 
all of the photos that were entered
the FREE PHOTO CONTEST for July....
click on THIS LINK.

Hard to choose just ONE winner, isn't it?

my wonderful randomly-chosen judges
did it.
(Bless their hearts).

(drum roll please).....

July's winner for the theme of "ACTION or MOTION" 




An excellent choice!!

It has action (the bird catching the other bird...just stunning!)
the fabulous motion of the wind on the white-capped waves....

Special mention also goes to:
--Nancy (they loved the boy's expression and action of the water!)

I loved them all, I truly did....
and I want to congratulate and thank all the people who entered the contest...
you are outdoing yourselves every month!!!

Every single judge I have contacted have a very difficult time
choosing a winner...they have loved them all!

Keep those wonderful entries coming in!

And now that I am saying THAT,
remember to submit
your AUGUST's entry....


Sunrises or Sunsets

Get your picture into me (following THESE RULES) no later than midnight on August 31st.

(I have removed the rule that you couldn't have previously published it on your blog).

That date will be here before you know it....
so dig through your archives...
I KNOW you must have a gorgeous sunrise or sunset picture in your files
to send in...
go out and get one tonight or tomorrow morning!!!!

That is a fabulous photo...and thanks so much for taking off the rule about a photo that was published on our blogs being ineligible for use. When I get a good photo, I tend to use it immediately.

I have recently had the sad experience of some of my photos being used by someone else as their own. It really was upsetting to me so, now, as much as I hate doing it, I'm putting my name on photos. I realize people can still "steal" photos. I usually will share my pictures if someone has the decency to ask but this really blew my mind.

Awesome winning picture! I love, love, LOVE the action of the waves in the background, as well at the bird in flight.

Ryan said...

Ratty said...

This one is absolutely great. Congratulations to the winner, and to all who entered this time for their great photos. Now that I'm getting time to slow back down a little for me, maybe I can start entering again. I don't know about this next one though because I just don't really have a place where I can do sunrises or sunsets. I've been moaning about that for three years now. :)
