Two weeks ago we announced our fourteenth Greatest Photo Contest, by challenging local photographers to submit their best pictures of Kingston to our ever-growing Flickr group. As you’ll see, there are many awe-inspiring photos in our group that deserve to be seen and featured in their own right. Accordingly, the task of narrowing down the latest round of submissions to eight finalists was a daunting one to say the least. Thankfully, we get to hand over the most difficult decision to our readers, who will ultimately select the best of the best.
The scaled photos from the finalists are all linked to the originals on Flickr. We highly recommend you click through in order to see them all in high resolution. In no particular order, the finalists are:
Sunset by Tim Trentadue (left). Kingston Mills Flood Runoff by Kenneth Beatson (right).
Beautiful Start to Boxing Day by mkutz2011 (left). Woodbine Road by Jim Vance (right).
The Old Bicycle by Dark Arts Astrophotography (left). Princess Towers by Sean Hickman (right).
Overlooking the City from The Fort by Troy Johnson (left). Out of the Mist by Christopher Howitt (right).
My pick for Kingstonist's Greatest Photo is:
- Overlooking the City from the Fort (32%, 181 Votes)
- The Old Bicycle (31%, 176 Votes)
- Beautiful Start to Boxing Day (21%, 120 Votes)
- Princess Towers (7%, 39 Votes)
- Out of the Mist (3%, 18 Votes)
- Woodbine Road (3%, 15 Votes)
- Kingston Mills Flood Runoff (2%, 13 Votes)
- Sunset (1%, 3 Votes)
Total Voters: 565
Voting will be open until midnight on June 18th. The photographer with the most votes will win a $50 gift certificate to their choice of Kingston Frameworks or Camera Kingston. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, June 20th.
As always, Kingstonist appreciates the efforts of all those who’ve joined and continue to upload photos to our Flickr group. We regularly source photos from this group, so even if your submission wasn’t selected or doesn’t win the top prize, there’s a very good chance we’ll find a way to feature it in the future.
