Women in Photography International Competition 2009

I have just had the honor of judging the “Flower” division of the 2009 Women in Photography International Competition. What a difficult yet inspiring mission! Flowers, so exquisite in nature, were rendered even lovelier in art.

"Reverence Des Dahlias"- 1st Place

"Reverence Des Dahlias"- 1st Place

The first place winner, SM Berry’s “Reverence Des Dahlias,” is an almost surreal portrait of these amazing blooms contrasted against ancient looking church-like buttresses. The flowers almost seem like architectural elements themselves. What a lovely foundation for any structure!

To see the 25 Honorable Mentions, take a look at this site, click on Berry’s name, then click the gallery for “Flowers.”
