Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest
Last week we announced our sixth Greatest Photo Contest. Local photographers responded in spades by uploading their favourite pics of Kingston and Kingstonians to our ever-growing Flickr group. Our jury has combed through all the fantastic shots and have, with great difficulty, narrowed them down to eight finalists to include in our two week long poll. Now it’s up to you, our readers, to help us choose the best photo. As always, we thank everyone who uploaded photos to our Flickr group. We use the group regularly as a source for photos for our daily posts and it is always nice to see new additions.
The photos below are all linked to their original Flickr page and we highly recommend you click through to see them all at their best resolution. In no particular order, the finalists are:
Westbrook Snowshoe Race by Sean Hickman (left). University Avenue by moonball (right).
Waterfront by bwilz (left). Foot Prints & Shadows by cjh44 (right).
mm & adam glendora by Tom Rutledge (left). Ring-Billed Gull by FrauleineHauteclocque (right).
One Is The Loneliest Number by Hung Mai (left). Wandering Goose by Memories Done Wonderfully (right).
My pick for Kingstonist's Greatest Photo is:
- moonball (49%, 144 Votes)
- bwilz (29%, 85 Votes)
- Sean Hickman (11%, 32 Votes)
- Hung Mai (4%, 13 Votes)
- Tom Rutledge (2%, 7 Votes)
- cjh44 (2%, 6 Votes)
- FrauleineHauteclocque (2%, 5 Votes)
- Memories Done Wonderfully (1%, 2 Votes)
Total Voters: 294
Voting will be open until midnight on June 30th and the photographer with the most votes will win a $50 gift certificate to Kingston Frameworks or Camera Kingston. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, July 2nd.

My vote went Hung Mai. The composition and contrast of that photo are stunning.
I voted for Tom Rutledge. Not enough focus is paid to Kingston's wonderful fresh-water diving and wrecks (also zebra mussels,)
