Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest
Last week we announced our forth Greatest Photo Contest. Once again, the response from local photographers was overwhelming, as our Flickr group is bursting with even more awesome local flavour. This past weekend, Kingstonist’s dedicated editorial team sifted through submissions and painstakingly selected photos for inclusion in our two week-long poll to crown the best of the best. A big thank you to everyone who uploaded photos to our Flickr group.
While we’ve shrunk photos to fit below, they’re all linked to their respective originals, and we strongly recommend clicking through to see each one. In no particular order, the finalists are:
The Way Home by Gangie (left). Feelin’ Blue by Hung Q. Mai (right).
Kingston Marsh on Fire by Tom Rutledge (left). Friends and Supermoon by jj8rock (right).
Snowfence by Urban Ear Photography (left). Tunnel by Michel Soucy (right).
Sleepy Time by nicbet (left). Slate by jnicholls357 (right).
My pick for Kingstonist's Greatest Photo is:
- Urban Ear Photography (30%, 60 Votes)
- Hung Q. Mai (22%, 44 Votes)
- jj8rock (13%, 26 Votes)
- nicbet (10%, 19 Votes)
- Gangie (9%, 17 Votes)
- jnicholls357 (8%, 15 Votes)
- Michel Soucy (6%, 11 Votes)
- Tom Rutledge (4%, 8 Votes)
Total Voters: 200
Voting will be open until midnight on June 24th, while the photographer with the most votes will win a $50 gift certificate to either Kingston Frameworks or Camera Kingston. As an added bonus, we’re rewarding all of those whose images made it to the voting stage with one of our impossible to get Kingstonist tees. Thanks once again for all those who entered, and thanks for voting!

Some terrific work ……. A difficult choice
I wanted to address a pair of comments that were received. To be clear, we are fully aware that “Supermoon” is a composite shot, while it is detailed as such by the photographer over on Flickr. The question of "whether or not this is allowed" should be evident as we selected jj8rock's shot for inclusion in this week's poll. In the end, we leave it up to our readers to vote for their faves, whether that's something that is doctored, or a more traditional photograph.
