Autumn Photographic Competition Winners

We had 29 entries into our first Photographic Competition and, according to our Judge, Cara Lee Mc Laughlin, they were all pretty good but, there could be only ONE winner for that super prize from Steenberg Wineries.

FIRST PRIZE WINNER

Andy-Calmeyer-150x150Andy Calmeyer

Congratulations!  You have won a voucher entitling you to take ten of your friends to Steenberg Wineries for a cheese and wine tasting.

 

Cara’s comments on the winning photo:

“Although the bird is in flight, the plants are in complete focus.
The colours are really good and you can still see what type of bird it is, so all in all, a great job!”

MORE WINNERS!

Cara mentioned that it had been quite difficult to decide on an outright winner as her top three choices were all quite close so…… we asked her to nominate a second and third winner as well.

SECOND WINNER
Nicholas-Ball-150x150Nicholas Ball (14yrs old)

Congratulations!  You have won a R150 gift voucher from Musica

Cara’s comments:“Love that the owl is looking directly at the photographer and that he is centered.”
