trophy ~September 2013 POM Winner!~

Even though we didn't get beyond one page, 50 posts but not nearly that many entries, we had excellent photos entered! Thank you, all!

The Grand Prize Winner is kchd!

This winning photo plus the ones below, show proper use of aperture priority, purposely or not.

The following entries are also excellent and worthy of prizes!

Congratulations, kchd! If I remember, that was the first picture posted...and I immediately thought it was a winner...then I saw the other entries, and I wondered how one could decide.

Congratulations also go out to turttle, havalotta...and turttle and kchd again. Well deserved, all.

Wow, thank you!! I must say I am surprised, actually. Even though the POM thread was short this month with not as many entries, there were some truly amazing photos (Hava's toad & turttle's caterpillar!!). If WG is ever tempted to do a weekly calendar... This whole group would need to be in it!!

Yes I remember.... but it was you who splurtl'd out "The following entries are also excellent and worthy of prizes"
That's ok Sage, Skip making the one you had intended for me and back me up, making Kchd's.

Don't worry Kchd..... You'll receive your certificate. Sage is real good at creating.

LOL, I figured! I think Hava likes making those certs as much as everyone likes receiving em.
