"This was a fun contest to judge with many wonderful entries! The theme was ‘Bright And Colorful: Share your best multicolored shots. Portraits, landscapes, architecture, anything goes!’ So my main focus was to find images were bright and colorful. I took a first pass at the finalists, looking for the images that made me stop and say “Wow!” Congratulations to all the Finalists, Runner-ups and Winners." - Laurie Rubin

Grand Jury Winner

"I really love the bright colors in this image of a caterpillar crawling up the stem of the plant. The orange and yellow on the caterpillar are also in the background and on the plant itself. Very nice bokeh effect in the background and the main subject is nice and sharp. Very beautiful colors!" - Laurie Rubin

Runner Up

"This really got my attention because of the fun celebration of colors on Graduation Day. The multicolors of hundreds of colorful confetti being blown towards the camera, gives a very whimsical feeling and happy mood to the image." - Laurie Rubin
