"In the garden" challenge winner
« on: October 07, 2009, 03:46:19 PM »
I am pleased to announce that Tom F won this month's challenge with his hummingbird photograph ... a difficult subject. 

Congratulations to Tom F and to the other finalists as well.

This was a strong challenge with a lot of entries and many commendable pictures. I had trouble narrowing down the finalist list. Thank you to everyone for entering and making Dynax Digital a great little board.

This thread is open for comment.

Cheers!
