Here they Are! April 2011's FREE PHOTO CONTEST: Theme: Reflections

Once again I am overwhelmed with the creativity and beauty
of the 23 photos that were submitted for this month's 

This month's theme was:

I love that some took the theme literally and that some took the theme to mean
to reflect on something else....

Once again, if I accidentally forgot someone's entry, please notify me IMMEDIATELY.

someone I may have forgotten.

I think the reflections contest has been the best one yet. What a job to pick!!!

You may have forgot someone's picture, but I forgot to keep up. I just checked last night for the first time to see who won the red contest and then realized that I missed the next one's entry date altogether. You have some wonderful entries here.

teresa said...

Great pics, all so beautiful. I wouldn't want to have to judge either.

Wow - all are spectacular! How could you possibly choose?

Far Side of Fifty said...

Oh my they are all so Teresa's with the made me laugh out loud:)

Such amazing photographs. I so enjoyed seeing them all!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh wow, this is an amazing group of photos. I love the variety of the shots. Good luck to the judges, it's gonna be tough!

Dave said...

I thought the photos were great too. Good luck judges! - Dave

CrazyCris said...

Beautiful! I love anything to do with water and I was sure this month's theme would provide several breathtaking uses of my favourite liquid! :D

The judges will once again have a hard time choosing! Glad I'm not in their shoes!!! :p

Seeing my picture there reminds me I still haven't written the related post on the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum (where the only way to photograph the Parthenon marbles is by using the reflection in the windows since they frustratingly don't let you take any photos! Why are there places that insist in thwarting photographers???).

Sharon Wagner said...

Great photos and participation! I love the dog at Sunrise. And I can't wait to look for some A. No butts about it.

Pat Tillett said...

What a great group of photos!

Kate said...

Loved Lisa C's. Beautiful work.

Linda Reeder said...

I din't get a pic entered this time because, as a multiple winner, I made a new rule for myself - I have to use only new photos and not use my archive. This month it just didn't happen, too much going on. But I was very curious to see what others would come up with. It's quite an interesting variety.
