WE have a WINNER!: June 2011 Free Photo Contest: Theme: Circles !!

We have a Winner!

This month's FREE PHOTO CONTEST's theme was:


We got so many creative entries.

The judges now hate me.

(But that's ok...
I can take it.)

(I just probably will have a harder and harder time finding new judges).


let's get over the suspense and get right to it, shall we???

(drumroll, please.....................)

The winner is:

Valboy!  Her blog is called: "My Girlz Got Paws".
(Note: She says: "its the top of a gazebo in a flower garden in Lincoln, Ne. I had to lay down on the concrete to get the shot (maybe we should have to tell how we get the shot, haha) I'm sure the people leaving the area thought I was a nut!!")


I say....MORE of us should "act like a nut" if it means getting
creative photos like this!

Honorable mentions also go to:
--Heather (what a find of "circles" imbedded in rocks!)
--Jacob Mc.--very creative lighting shot

Once again....
thanks to EVERYONE who entered all of those gorgeous circle photos!
You ALL deserved to win!

That had to be the toughest choice the judges have made so far. Many fabulous photos in that contest!! It was a joy to view them all

Pat said...

Hey - congratulations to Valboy! That certainly is a neat shot! The lengths a person will go to to get a great shot!

SquirrelQueen said...

Congrats to Valboy! That is a great shot. If I only took photos where people wouldn't look at me funny I would have very few photos or none at all. That's half the fun!

Val said...

Oh my goodness, thank you!!! I almost didn't enter this photo, just didn't think it had a chance. Thank you judges!! I also want to thank Joan for sponsoring this monthly contest--it has really encouraged me to think outside the box. Guess it's okay to be a little "nuts"
Val Bloy :)

LindyLouMac said...

A well deserved win Val, very many congratulations at your successful thinking outside the box.
