In judging past contests, I mistakenly chose one winner, which always made it impossible, so I started to have two winners to make it more angst free. Of course, I am now conflicted again in choosing only two, so I have expanded it to three winners.
The top photo by Mau Pacifico is hands down the most unusual. I got a kick out of the trash and cigarette strewn ledge.
The second photo by Cynthia Hood is lovely with the pink blossoms in front with the tower almost in black and white in the background.
I was immediately drawn in by the enticing blue of the photo by Elizabeth Rand. I asked if it was tinted or altered in photoshop but she said it was the real color with just a slight alteration in Lightroom.
Congratulations to the winners and also want to thank everyone for taking the time to send photos. Mau, Cynthia, and Elizabeth, please email me your addresses so I may send you your copy of Eiffel’s Tower by Jill Jonnes.
The consolation prize goes to Cara Barnes for the last photo.
