Equal Second Place

V is for View by Jonathan Swift
F is for a Foggy Day by Brian Crossland

Equal Third Place

R is for Raindrops on Red Flower by Scott Michael Anna

H is for Hungry by Anthony Greco

Best Of Theme
H is for Hungry by Anthony Greco

Patti Wheeler selected the Best of Theme and offered this insight into her choice :

"I choose Anthony Greco's "H is for Hungry" photo for Best of Theme for two reasons He could have titled his photo "B for bird", but chose to emphasis the strong EMOTION it portrayed!
It also shows the technique of utilizing "DEPTH OF FIELD" to make the main subject the most important focal point in a photo! Kudos, Anthony!"

Mike joined the group in February this year and it is his first win. Jonathan who placed second is also a recent member joining us in April of this year. Good to go on the break with some fresh faces at the top.

Best of Theme

Starry Night by Sheryl Rosedoff Bergman.
Patti Wheeler chose Nocturnal as the theme this week and had this to say about her choice for Best of Theme: I love its flat, graphic quality & the colors in it, but also love the unique angle it's taken from......she simply looked up at those silly lights which stand out against that twilight sky like multicolored stars!
