Congratulations to all the winners for this month's contest. I have posted the judges comments on each of the images, so take a look to see what our judge Joseph Roybal, had to say about this month's images. Please feel free to add your comments to each of the images as well!
Joseph's overall comments are:
"All of the images entered were great and I had an incredibly difficult time choosing only two to be top. One overall observation and comment is many of the images simply needed a slight cropping to them to really make them pop. I realize many photographers do not like this as they feel it is cheating or being dishonest to the viewer and/or themselves; however, a strong image is a strong image and do yourself the favor and make that image as strong as possible. Overall, great images and I had a blast looking at everyone's entries. Keep shooting and producing great work and hope to meet many of you in the future."
A HUGE THANK YOU to our judge Joseph Roybal, for taking time to examine and juror our entries for this month's contest! If you have a chance, take a look at Joseph's website www.josephroybal.com for some fabulous inspiration and to see some of the classes and photo tours he offers! THANKS JOSEPH!
Again CONGRATULATIONS TO THIS MONTH'S WINNERS! Karen has the honor of choosing the theme for the July Photo Contest, and as soon as I hear from her, I will post all the details!
