#38. Petra Corcoran   A bunch of good things came together here for Petra. But in the end, she stood back, let the mood happen and pushed the button. Standing back and doing nothing can be extremely difficult. Really nice photograph. Here’s what she said: “Teen...

#43. Liz Sharp Griffin   OK, there are some words required. But the story is so great. Enjoy. Thank you for this, Liz. (I will admit, I did think that cowboying was all galloping and yehawing. Who knew?) Liz said: “On a recent cattle drive I took photos for, this...

#44. Heather Baker   First of all, I think we can all agree that the shapes and timing and black and white are all really lovely here. OK, good. Anne, my wife, asked me how I felt about the one dark piece of window blind behind the cat. I said that I was rather...

#45. Tom Reese   I have a couple of reactions to this photo. First, mirrors are so cool. Look at the way Tom has used that reflection to to create a composition that completely draws us in with a story that is told and then retold again. Secondly, the “double the...

#46. Sue Thorson Hecker This is pretty amazing. Sue has successfully survived the 7 year old / 70 year old comparison photo. Few of us have the courage. But it’s just incredible, isn’t it?! I mean, it really is. Here are her words: “One morning, I looked at my face...

#47. Rochelle Hepworth   The little guy is sharing his beloved stuffed animal with the littler guy. The bird’s eye view has made the image bold and and easy to read. It’s totally immediate. Using an unexpected camera angle to rearrange the elements in a picture...

#48. Heidi Basford Kerkhof   The girls are learning to eat lobster for the first time. This tells the story so well. It’s actually a wonderful food photograph. I love it. There are certain people in the world who should not eat lobster. I’m not exactly sure why...

#49. Trudy McWilliams Johnson   Trudy has been to several of our workshops around the country so I know what Trudy looks like. She looks like this little boy, her grandson. Well not exactly like this little boy but close enough to completely get that genetics...

#6. Betsy Ambrose I can clearly remember my father getting all twisted when a six-year-old me did this mid-sermon. (My shoes were not as nice.) He was a decent photographer but I don’t think it ever dawned on him to shoot a photograph.   Betsy, however, recognized the...

#7. Liz Sharp Griffin I am not sure we’ve ever had a photograph on this site that was more eye walking friendly. Your eyeballs just gets to take a little stroll around the picture and continue to find unexpected little details. I guess what I’m trying to say is this:...

#8. Denise Wilton I remember a fancy travel photographer telling me that Scotland has the world’s best clouds. (Maine has beautiful clouds, too. And one of the reasons we moved to upstate New York is because the clouds here are regularly stunning.) The sunlight on...
