Drum Roll for Our Photo Challenge Winner

The grand prize goes to [insert drum roll here]


Fins, Fangs, Feathers and Fur

I am so pleased to present to you this year's grand prize winner, The Saint's Red.

I asked all the staff for their thoughts and comments on those photos that were emerging as the top shots. One of them nailed my thoughts on this image … she said The Saint's Red has the most emotional appeal for her.

What makes this such a good image is exactly that "emotional appeal." It may not be as technical as some shots (the focus of the photo, the girl on the right, isn't on a thirds line) but there is also nothing technically wrong with it.  It is more of a documentary-style shot -- fine art if you will.  There is action, motion, and aliveness to it.

Two photos tied for second place …

Each one of those winners will receive a complimentary copy of The Lucrative Traveler's Toolkit, a $399 value.

Congratulations to all our winners!

The race to the finish was extremely close. Thanks for your vote. And thanks for participating throughout the year.
