February Photo Winner

The theme for February’s photo competition was Elements, a simple word with many meanings. I left it completely open as to which meaning of the word should be used, so it’s not surprising that there was a big entry with a wide range of interpretations of the theme.

First up I’d like to thank everyone who got into the spirit of the competition. If you went out and took a photo just for this challenge then you should be proud of your achievement.

Choosing a winner proved much harder this time then the first photo contest I ran in January. The standard of the entries was just as high, so I started by narrowing down the entry to those that caught my eye. That helped narrow down the choice a bit but I was still left with a large number of photos, any one of which could have been the winner. So in the end I selected the photos that I felt best fitted the theme.

So the winner is…A Breeze By Tem Breum

Tem will be getting a copy of his print made by my good friends over at Print Yours.
