There were a lot of great images submitted and to add interest to the contest we added a Mystery judge. The Mystery judges are volunteers and I, alone know their identities. If you would like to be a Mystery Judge in the future send me (Zanymuse) a C-mail. Now, on to what our judges had to say...
The contest turned out to be what I wanted to see. Everyone is beginning to really look at things. Some very good close ups in this group. All 4 of my placements are great pictures.
NEILMUIR1 This is my 1st place winner. It is a great close up and well composed. A new tree fern frond unfurling!
My first choice..... very eye catching and beautiful
quietyard My 2nd placed picture. Very nice. I love the new growth coming from what looks like a dead tree.
Zencat My second choice.... I love the lighting, the veins and the exposure on this one.... very nice.
Zencat My 3rd place picture,and another very good close up.
mcash70 My third choice.. the colors on this one stand out. Pretty cool looking.
Kelli My 4th place. Here is another very nice close up.
Ridesredmule my fourth choice... these are nice...the Brown really sets them off.
I think we are going to have to start another placement as a number of the groups of the pictures stood out. Here are 2 that are my first runners up, they are very good pictures ves ______________________________________ Moonhowl Yes the pink "petals" are bract leaves and it is a very good picture. ______________________________________ Ridesredmule A nice picture of banana leaves-would be a little better with a brighter light. ______________________________________ mcash70 Three very good pictures, all in in focus and nicely composed.
______________________________________ Kelli Enlarge this picture and you will see that it is a really nice picture. ______________________________________ Zencat I love to look at the skeletons of leaves. There is a very interesting design on this leaf. _______________________________________ herbie43 Nice picture , next time try moving back some before taking the picture.
