contest comments

Thank you for the pleasure and richness you bring every year with the presentation of the winning photographs in your annual contest . I am a person who can barely manage to achieve a halfway decent snapshot once in a while, so I can admire the incredible talent and artistry shown by those winning photographers. And to think that there are all those other thousands of photographs that weren't the final winners but must also have been exceptional. I go through the magazine like a rapt tourist visiting an art museum. Of course, the photos are art--of the highest level. But it is the sheer delight in the beauty, the composition, the breath-taking concept of each picture that enchants me. The only problem for me is that I can't (won't!) throw any issue out. I keep each one. Thank you for sharing these riches.
