February Photo contest *FINALS*

Last edited Fri Feb 22, 2013, 04:29 AM - Edit history (1)

Thanks to all who voted their favorites among the 28 entries we received for the February contest. These are the ten finalists from those preliminaries.

All are such beautiful images, I'm sure choosing just one will be difficult, but your participation will be appreciated by all in the Photography Forum.

When registering your vote, please consider the theme as well as overall appeal and technical skill:

"I See Music"

...or as it was originally worded:

Music is all about us, it's everywhere we roam
We listen in our car, we play it loud at home

Golden glint of a horn and sunburst on a Fender
A bass drum looks beat and the oboe so slender

Music sleeps in a piano key waiting to be heard
It abounds in nature in the song of a bird

So pop off your lens cap and perk up your ear
Follow that tune and let us see what you hear


===============================================

On behalf of all those in the forum, I invite any interested DU photographers to stop in, look around, and perhaps consider an entry in the annual Winter contest scheduled to begin March 1st:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1036

This poll will run through Sunday night, February the 24th, and the winner will be announced Monday morning. Skinner has granted permission for this poll to be run in GD.


Thank you
JohnnyRingo

================================================

22. I could have picked any of them - they are all wonderful.

But I picked National Guard.

Ask me again in half an hour and I'd probably pick something else.

Tomorrow is "pretend not to gloat day". hahahaha

Kidding aside, I agree with some posters here that it's nice to see such a fascinating myriad of pictures from DU's most talented once a month. It's a tradition that must continue.
