Our last photo contest ended last week and again we had some great entries. This time the theme was your best Hipstamatic Inspired photo and there were some creative entires and a good mix of work. As always the judging was close and thanks to all that entered. Congrats to the winner who will receive a $100 gift card from Black River Imaging! I also want to give honors to some of the other top runners that are shown below.

The winning image was a very beautiful floral shot by Barbara Koralewska. I think what really works with this image is the contrast of very simple earthy tones that are very soft and relaxing along with the intricacies of all the lines going up in the image. It has a great feel to the image and is a great example of how tone (and texture) applied to the right image can really make a difference. I bet this shot processed with the “correct” colors and tone would not have anywhere near the impact that this image has. Congrats Barbara!
