All superb choices.
A big thank you to the judges in completing this task. Narrowing it down
and finding the best photos out of the thousands submitted could not
have been an easy task.

We are still working on getting the judgement on the best picture of a
proposed monument done and will notify you all shortly of that award soon.
*How the winning three photographs were picked: *
Once our panel of judges had selected their top twenty photographs I
asked them to rank in order of preference (from 1st place to 20th
place) which photographs they liked the most. The judges ratings for
each photograph were then added up into a score and the photograph
with the lowest score (remember that 1st place is better than 20th
place) was the winner. In this way the photograph that all the judges
collectively chose as the best was identified.
Thanks and best regards,
