Our Spring floral-themed Member Challenge seemed to be extremely inspiring for all of you! We were overwhelmed by the number of participants we had this round – so thank you, guys! We loved the variety in your approaches to these floral photos. Some of you were very inspired by Melanie’s class and shot in the studio, while others went outside and shot right out in nature. We were seriously impressed and spent over an hour deliberating between all of these amazing shots.

First place went to Tina Anderson (image above). That pop of color, the detail of the water drops, and the crispness of the entire image wowed us all. Congratulations!

Our runner-up image (below) was by Svetlana VanKempen. The fun lens twist used on this siberian squill was unique and beautiful.

And our three honorable mentions—as seen from left to right—go to Barry Hamric, Denise R. Farro, and Kent Auf Der Heide.

A big thank you to everyone who participated! Make sure to swing by the Insider or the Community tomorrow as we introduce Member Challenge 21!
