DMBLGIT April 2012 – The Winners

Photography is an art form. A photographer forms an intimate relationship with their camera and the objects that they are photographing. Time, patience and a sharp eye can transform a subject into something extraordinary. The photographers who participated in this month’s event are clearly artists who have excelled at their craft. There were 36 submissions. Each one tells a story about the photographer and the subject. I am so honored to have hosted this event. It gave me the opportunity to check out new-to-me photographers who I will eagerly follow in the future. Many thanks to Soma, Sneh, Kulsum and Barb for serving as our judges. They definitely had a tough and important job.

If you are not familiar with Does My Blog Look Good In This see my announcement post. You can check out all the submissions here and find out about our judges here.

Without further ado, I am pleased to announce the winners.
