1st place
On Golden Swan by 0930_23

bfrank: Congratulations!!! Good job Tick.

rvdb: You have my admiration a beautiful capture Tick.


tigger3: The color is so darn nice Tick, good capture and the swans are a great added bonus. tigz=^..^=

Nikoneer: Nice play on the movie title, Tick... "Come on, Norman, let's go say goodbye to the swans... HOOOOONNKKK!" Seriously, though, what a great example of reflected light, the water disturbed by the swans reflecting the sky above, while silhouetted by color from the opposite bank. That orange must come from a mass of gold and red fall leaves. I'd say good luck in the contest but you really don't need it... a placer, for sure. S&F.

2nd place
Woodland dawn by Lin_O

bfrank: Congratulations!!! I really liked this one.

mesmerized: Wonderful perspective and ambience...super of luck.

casechaser: Lisa was so correct in that your photography is also art. I love to see geometry in art and your diagonal creates a midpoint between the the golden top and the red/rusty bottom. The walkway is an interesting perpendicular which leads the eye across the hill.

3rd place
Early Morning by Starglow

Ramad: A very beautiful sunrise shot with that brilliant sky and the cow in silhouette.

jerseygurl: Congratulations Carol on taking 3rd place in the contest!!!!!!!!

rvdb: Kinda figure the early bird catches the Cow .... or something like that
but for sure a great capture.


4th place
Sundown by WTFlack

Nikoneer: I was happy to see this one in the top five but felt it deserved a considerably higher level of award, and when I voted in the contest I put it in second, right behind Tick's geese. Never be discouraged by the contest voting results... after 11 years here, I have yet to understand how some folks arrive at the conclusions they do.

Happy Trails
