I don't envy the voters (Bryan and I did not vote) as there were so many amazing photos to choose from and most categories were very close. One tie was resolved by a third party as noted would occur in the event of a tie. Isabel Kelly walked away in Portraits and Someone You Love and I have to give serious credit to Gord Clarke (top 3 in 3 categories), Perry Craig (top 2 in 2 categories) and Mihai Costea (top 2 in 2 categories). Some members entered one image, some entered dozens, all were really wonderful.
Henrys has provided the promised gift cards for the winners, so please see me at the October or November club meeting to claim your prize. Thanks to all for entering!
