We have a winner for the May's FREE PHOTO CONTEST! Theme: Something that Starts with an A
The Judges have spoken!
We have a winner for the FREE MONTHLY Amateur PHOTOGRAPHER's CONTEST for MAY 2011.
The theme was:
SOMETHING THAT STARTS WITH AN A
We got some interesting entries, and it was such fun to see what people entered.
If you didn't get a chance to see the blogpost of all the entries,
just click HERE.
without any further delay....
HERE IS YOUR WINNER:
It is a stunning Amaryllis photo!!!
Special mentions also go to:
--Heather for her Architecture photo
--Sharon for her volcano photo
--Jacob for his "colorless" classroom photo (The judges said it was very original for the A theme!)
Once again, I really, really want to thank those that enter, month after month, faithfully--all of the photos are so unique and wonderful.
And, I want to thank all the new people that entered too. I encourage you all to keep entering a photo every month.
It is a great exercise for any photographer to get a theme and then go out and find a photo. Sometimes, when you are looking for a themed photo, you can find photos of many other things right next to the one you take for a contest. Some wonderful photos you never would have found without going out on the theme exercise!
It stretches your creative muscles, which is a GOOD THING!!!
My judges always say it is a near-impossible job to pick only one winner and many times I have to go to a 4th or 5th judge to get a final decision.
Also, I want to encourage new readers/Followers to enter your photo. You don't have to be a seasoned photographer..just try! It is such fun to see everyone's interpretation to the monthly themes!
This month the theme is:
Enter your photo to me, no later than midnight on June 30, 2011,
You don't have to be a Blogger to enter.
REMINDER: All photographs on this blog are COPYRIGHTED.
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
