WINNERS *** Mini-Challenge #373 ~ LAKESCAPES ***

Thanks to everyone who entered, and to those of you who took the time to look and comment on the photos. All the entries were quality photos, and narrowing them down to a few outstanding shots wasn't easy for me. Please remember, however, that these are merely my choices based on whatever mysterious things make one seem better than another to me.

Here are the HONORABLE MENTIONS, in no particular order. I like the mood that's conveyed by the muted colors in the first one, and the vivid colors of the second one caught my eye, especially with the two figures walking on the far side of the pond. Two nice compositions!

Bob Blount - Nice Fall Day

THIRD PLACE. Again, the vivid colors add a lot to this inviting scene.

Sacto Jim - Wrights Lake

SECOND PLACE. Excellent composition, good foreground interest, very moody winter scene:

KenG - Frozen Pond & Cattails

And FIRST PLACE. This one stood out in my mind -- it looks like a serene 19th century English landscape painting. Really draws me in.

Stephenbw - Coniston at Sunsrise

Thanks again for participating! I look forward to the next MINI-CHALLENGE!
