1st Place ($300)


Jason St. Clair, "Ears"

An amateur photographer, Jason snapped this shot of his dinner, simple ears of corn, while staying in a hill tribe village in Thailand. He says the "time of day, lighting, and natural environment" inspired him to capture the moment with his Panasonic Lumix. The judges appreciated the use of texture and the contrast of light and dark in the photo.

2nd Place ($170)


Dan Xeller, "Menemsha Beach"

Again Dan demonstrates his eye for photography. This was taken in an old fishing village in Martha's Vineyard with film, and was not digitally enhanced. The clear blue skies set off the bright umbrellas and make them pop. Judges agreed that the lack of symmetry, the use of space, and the positioning of the camera all give a fun, quirky feel to the picture.

Honorable Mention ($50)


Katy Perrin, "Brick Shit House Recliner"

The title sums up the image here. Taken at the same abandoned house as "Time Warp," Katy again brings life to an old, desolate house. The judges liked how a pair of plaid trousers hangs over the red chair, mimicking the pattern of the chipping paint in the background. Katy has photography in her blood; her father and uncle are both photographers.

Honorable Mention ($50)


Laura Coolidge, "Roots"

Laura, an environmental studies student and amateur photographer, used her Nikon FM2 to turn garbage into art. She shot this photo of a weed headed for the compost pile while volunteering on an organic farm. The judges chose "Roots" for the good depth of field, focus, and print quality.
