Reminder For June’s Picture This Contest

A reminder to get your entries in for June’s Picture This Contest.  Our judge is Josh McCullough of Phyto Photo. The theme for this month is The Best Frame You Have Ever Created.

This is how Josh described what he is looking for in the winning entry:

“We are all learning and growing and marking our progress each day, each moment, with the aspiration to be more aware, more knowledgeable, more fulfilled. And there is no way to still that understanding to one moment in time, one frame. The way we see that frame changes as our perspective does. And what a great thing to be able to look back on that past frame, or out into the world as our current perspective leads us and judge that for what it is now to us at this moment. And that is what I ask of you for this months contest, to give me your best ever. That’s right, the BEST FRAME YOU HAVE EVER CREATED. Your favorite. The one that means the most to you, that conveys what skill you had to bring to bear at its creation and now as you ascertain what it expresses. Your BEST EVER!”

For this month’s Picture This photo contest, we’re thrilled  to have a returning  judge whose last stint was a huge hit. Joshua McCullough is the creator of PhytoPhoto, a specialist collection of expertly identified botanical, horticultural and environmental photos; images supplied to a wide variety of print mediums. His work is outstanding: it’s worth your time to check it out.

“I spent a fair bit of time mulling over how to use this opportunity to begin the new round of photo contests. It is quite an honor to be able to select a theme and view the excellent submissions of this deservedly popular part of GGW for the second time and I wanted a theme that would do justice to the time and effort I know everyone puts into their submission. Something interesting, something easily conceptualized and yet completely individual in potential interpretation. Something grand, no… something epic.

EndoftheLine3

With 82 entries, our judge, Josh McCullough of PhytoPhoto, had a bear of a job to go through each photo at least once before narrowing it down to the semi-finalists and then the finalists.

Without further ado, here are Josh’s comments and picks:

“First, I just have to give a big thanks. As I linger over this strange family of images brought together by purpose and chance for me to digest along with my holiday meal, I am imbued once again with a desire to give thanks. Thanks for all the entries, especially first time entries, for everyone’s appreciation of the theme and for the invitation into all of your thoughts in how you see and interpret this idea. There are so many great images this time around and quite a crafty approach to the subject by many of you. Lovely. Thanks, thanks, thanks. Continue Reading →
