Thanks so much for entering your amazing, gorgeous summertime photos in our Raw Photos Contest. We could not be more thrilled or delighted or stunned by how hard a choice it was to come up with our finalists.
These are [in no particular order] our finalists, the photos that collectively, Andygirl and I thought best exemplified the Last Days of Summer. Gorgeous, aren't they?
And because my HTML skills are sorely lacking, I'm just going to write about how much I like each one and hope it syncs up with
I love, love, LOVE the color in this one. It's bone melting, isn't it?
This is simply gorgeous and I can smell the chlorine.
Wow. Beautiful, lacy, dainty. I'm waiting for a bee to buzz right over to this flower. I can almost smell it. [Does this type of flower have a smell? I'm going to think it does. Slightly sweet and powdery.]
I love this one. The smell of cotton candy, the wind whipping you as you plummet down the roller coaster.
I love the sun glinting on the metal here. I can almost smell the heat.
Oh. My. God. So gorgeous. So. Gorgeous.
So these are our finalist. Andygirl and I are going to spend a night making a painfully hard decision on the winner. Which one did you love? They're all so AMAZING. We'll announce the winner tomorrow.
Thanks again to everyone for making our inaugural Raw Photos Contest so wonderful. We couldn't have done it without you.
