We deliberated and deliberated. We shared some faves. Others we did not. But there were some fantastic standouts.
Alright, enough of my prattle. The runner up is....
This photo is really quite spectacular. Excellent quality. And even though you'd think you need color to capture an Autumn shot, the B&W is really quite dramatic. So evocative and emotive. You really gave us a run for our money with this one.
But without further ado:
the winner is.....
(drum roll please)
This was an instant fave for both of us. Seriously, people, how beautiful is this image? The water is so clear and the color of the leaf so gently bold. And the ripples? People, the ripples make this shot so dynamic. This photo really took our breath away.

For the next contest, we'll be giving you more time to take some excellent shots. We'll open submissions in late November.
And the theme is......
This is completely open to interpretation.
What is love to you? What do you love?
Maybe it's people (or a person), or pets, or places, or symbols of love.
