This is the second year I have submitted images to the Shoot & Share contest. I have thoroughly enjoyed voting on the immense amount of talent I have seen, and even more, I have found pleasure in the inspiration I have gained! This world is so full of beauty it has truly been amazing to be an onlooker and a storyteller in the past year. Here are some of my top finishers.
The total number of submissions were around 413,000. So many of my captures were inspired by other photographers, by the beauty all around us and everyday fleeting moments with my daughter. After all, she has always been my true inspiration. So it wasn't a surprise for me that all four of my top 10% were of my girl.
My two finalists in the contest this year. What a pleasure it has been.
One of my amazing friends, Shannon O'Malley not only participated in this contest, but one of her pictures took a solid 14th place!! She is a creator of all things mysterious, innovative and lovely. Take a look at her results here.
