This is my first fruit of my California Gold.
It almost looks like Gold. Doesn't it?

I don't know how the judges can pick just one. All the pics are absolutely beautiful & worth framing. Good luck to all!!

here's another one, my daughter (13) Rachel took it over the weekend. She wants to take photography class next year in school. I'm not sure she really needs it! What do you think?

Wasn't there a rule that they were all supposed to be taken with the camera straight up? There is no way they can even fit in the magazine page unless they are longer width than height.

Sadly, I don't think I have anything worthy this time!

OK, folkies! The contest is officially closed, and let me tell you we will have a really hard time judging it this quarter. I hope to have winners back by next week sometime.

Thanks to all who participated!

Nope - that's The BQ Cover Contest, which is ongoing and where I hope to see all of your lovely portrait-format entries, with no deadline in sight.

This one was just your best photos on the subject ''bananas.''

I'm working on it, folks, but I'm hindered by a total lack of household internet and also the sheer volume of excellent photos submitted. Hopefully we'll have winners next week!

Take your time. These folks take some fantastic shots. I don't envy you. (If you have no current, how are you posting? You have some monkeys on a treadmill?)

Well, competitors, our team of judges couldn't pick just four photos, so we've decided that.....

YOU ALL WIN!!!

Photos entered into this contest will be published in the center of the MegaIssue 3-4, due out in December (we hope)

Congratulations, all.
