Last week we announced our seventh Greatest Photo Contest, which encouraged local photographers to submit their best pics of Kingston and Kingstonians to our ever-growing Flickr group. Over the weekend, our jury took on the difficult task of narrowing down the submissions to eight finalists. Once again, it’s up to you, our readers, to help us choose the best photo. As always, Kingstonist appreciates the efforts of all those who’ve joined and uploaded photos to our Flickr group. Remember, we use the group regularly as a source for photos, so even if your piece wasn’t selected or doesn’t win the top prize, there’s a good chance we’ll find a way to feature it in the not too distant future.
The scaled photos below are all linked to the originals on Flickr. We highly recommend you click through to see them all in high resolution. In no particular order, the finalists are:
The Shop Building by Christopher Howitt (left). LaSalle Causeway by Dawn by Casey Telford (right).
Back in time to ride by Sean Hickman (left). Fireworks by Mary Ann Wamboldt (right).
Sipps, downtown Kingston by Steve Brule (left). Memorial Arch by Pascal Venier (right).
Old Bus Tour by Lito Ochotorena (left). Intense Eyes by Meaghan Haute-clocque (right).
