Two weeks ago we announced our thirteenth 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:
Olympic Harbour by Ryan Warner (left). At Night by Bill Gorham (right).
Richardson Stadium by Troy Johnson (left). Autumn by Yang Yu (right).
Sunset – Lemoine Point by Jim Vance (left). City Hall by mkutz2011 (right).
Martello Tower by Christopher Howitt (left). Pulled Over by Sharon W (right).
My pick for Kingstonist's Greatest Photo is:
- mkutz2011 (25%, 188 Votes)
- Bill Gorham (24%, 185 Votes)
- Troy Johnson (23%, 175 Votes)
- Ryan Warner (12%, 89 Votes)
- Christopher Howitt (7%, 50 Votes)
- Jim Vance (5%, 42 Votes)
- Sharon W (3%, 26 Votes)
- Yang Yu (1%, 11 Votes)
Total Voters: 766
Voting will be open until midnight on December 19th. 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, December 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.
