We received a great response to our first-ever winter photo contest, and after serious deliberation, have narrowed it down to five final images. Here are the judges’ comments on why these five photos caught their attention.

Pine Needles in Ice by Cheryl Pedemonti
Thinking outside the box: “Rather than pull back and shoot a landscape, Cheryl chose to focus in on a specific detail of winter. She kept it simple with nice, natural light”.

Wool in Snow by Tim Bronson
A perfect moment: “Tim’s composition of this image, pop of red in the frame, and sheep looking at the camera all worked together to capture the moment.”

Winter Fog by David Stone
The judges found themselves drawn to David’s images repeatedly, and this is the first of two that made it into the finals: “David’s eye for composing pleasing frames make his photos look almost painterly. This was shot in color, but the weather conditions made the shot look black and white.”

Lighthouse at Pemaquid Point by Dave Cleaveland
A nod to the classic: “Dave used the movement of the windswept snow to lead your eye into the frame and up to the lighthouse.”

Iced-in Canoe by David Stone
The second image by David Stone to make it into the finals: “Interesting composition with play of angles of canoe and dock. The color of light in the corner of the frame, which mirrors the color of the paddle on dock, made us look twice.”


Please take the time to leave a comment to congratulate the finalists and let us know which photograph is your favorite. The winner will be announced in late March.

We would like to congratulate our finalists and thank all who entered our contest. Stay tuned for details on our next photo contest.
