April Photo Competition ~ Results

First up I must apologise for the delay in getting the results up and I thank everyone for their patience.

The theme for April photo competition was a little different. This time there was no theme, in fact you could enter any photo you liked as long as it had one important element… the texture on my website.

First up I’d like to thank everyone who got into the spirit of the competition. With 149 entries I think this has been the largest entry to date and as such it’s taken me a while to select a winner.

Once again the standard of the entries was very high, in fact I’d go so far as to say the quality of the photos was the best I’ve seen in these challenges so far. Here’s how I choose the finalists.

I looked at all 149 entries very carefully. Many of the images were excellent photos with a texture over the top and whilst that fitted the theme I was looking for the texture to add another dimension to the image. With that in mind I narrowed it down to around 20 photos and from those I picked my top 10.

However there can only be one winner and this month the winner is…Mushrooms By Muffet


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