Welcome!

I still haven't seen all of the photos. I forgot until the wee hours that the winners had been announced.

I noticed that many winners (yes, they were all winners) were brand new members. There are a variety of contests that are fun here on NGA. Hope you'll participate in some. And be sure to take part in many of the forums.

Hope to see your member name around. Tossing an acorn to you to get you started.

Agreed, what beautiful photos!!

I wanted to participate for the first time this year but, again, things got too busy here in our household. The photo contest never suffers from my lack of my participation, though, I am always amazed at the gorgeous photos that are entered, most are absolutely stunning. Nice job, everyone!

Great contest! Thumbs up

Excellent photos in all categories, including all those in the 2nd phase, and even many that didn't make the initial cut.

It was very fair & fun. Best contest experience ever for me, even though none of mine made it to phase 2.
Letting everyone vote is much better, imho, than having a small panel of judges pick.

It's given me something to shoot for (no pun ;) in 2018.....not necessarily to win, though that would be nice,
but to improve my photos. Smiling
