Two weeks ago we announced our eighth Greatest Photo Contest, which encouraged local photographers to submit their best pics of Kingston and Kingstonians to our ever-growing Flickr group. Last week, 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 continue to upload 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:
Downtown Power Cut by James Silvester (left). Waking Up in Kingston by Casey Telford (right).
by Pascal Venier (left). Victoria Day by Lito Ochotorena (right).
by Christopher Howitt (left). Busy Market Square by Jeremy Johnston (right).
Cannons from the Fort Henry Guard by Jean-Guy Pitre (left). Ghostly road by Sean Hickman (right).

- Casey Telford (37%, 75 Votes)
