2016 Year End

<Back to Club Awards

2016 Image of the Year

“Crossroads Reflections” by Gary Schafer



President’s Choice Award

“Family Fishing”, a mono print by Steve Cole

I chose this photo because it was submitted as a print and prints are dear to my heart.  I also felt it was under-appreciated by our judges this year.  Most of all, I loved the daring shallow depth of field, which allows the viewer to add his own story.


People’s Choice Award

“Golden Mountain Tops” by Melissa Anderson

This award is important since it is the choice of our members, who are peers, not judges.

Moraine Lake; Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
