So enjoyable to review the photos once again -- I can honestly say I enjoy the ones on page 10 just as much as those on page 1 - lovely pictures! @Dave, will the program remember which photos we have submitted, or should we track this ourselves?

I agree Bonehead, I was just looking at the roses category winners and thinking that many that were near the end could have easily won the category. So many great photos.

You'll have to track yourself next year, although I will attempt to do some duplicate checking, but ultimately the responsibility is the member's to not resubmit the same photos again next year.

I am really flabbergasted that one of my pictures won! I am so challenged and have little patience with computers, cameras and for that matter, most other electronics (don't even get me started with these new-fangled HD televisions, the remotes and those cable boxes!) Green Grin!

When it comes to taking photographs all I do is look through the viewfinder and click the button ... and I never know if a picture is going to look decent until I've downloaded and viewed it on my laptop. Sometimes I like one or two out of a hundred and save them in folders on my computer but then when I happen to view them months later I wonder why in the world I saved such a terrible picture. It is always luck when a photo of mine turns out halfway decent and I never in a million years thought one of my pictures would be good enough to win a contest. I just entered the contest for the fun of it; in fact, the picture that won was a last minute thought and I wasn't even sure if it was right for the particular category.


I viewed all of the entries for this contest and it was so difficult choosing favorites. I thank everyone who voted for my picture ... this has really made my day!! No wait ... it's made my year!! Lovey dubby

I noted several unfamiliar (to me) names of contributors - will have to stalk some other forums to find out where these photo-genies are lurking.

Congratulations to each and every person who submitted a photo. This was a fantastic contest and I enjoyed viewing.

A great big congratulations goes to the ultimate winner, @Maiden (fan of Iron Maiden). I see by her his profile that her his hobbies are Carnivorous plants and Bodybuilding. She He can now add 'excellent sense of timing' for joining us on ATP in time to participate Thumbs up She He may be good at bodybuilding but she he is also no slouch at building the size of her his garden - way to go Hurray!

(My very personal favorite was in the top; the ice covered red fruits. Beautiful. Thumbs up to @Ursula)

Edit because I made a gender error. I stand corrected. Thanks!

So true, I've been taking my time looking at all the photos again and I haven't quite made it through the last two pages yet. There are so many wonderful photos of beautiful plants and yes, truly something for everyone's taste but I must admit, if we had a do-over vote each day I'd be choosing different photos each day! They are all so gorgeous that it makes me want one of each and every flower and tree in the photos that were entered and WOW, the gardens and landscapes really had me drooling. Some of you sure know your stuff when it comes to designing gardens! Good job everyone! Thumbs up

Voting was so close, it really shows how difficult it was to pick just three and then a best of show ... I guess that's why they are all my favorites! Lovey dubby
