Monthly theme Flowers winners
Do photographers have green fingers? At least that seems to be true for 1x photographers. Guest judge Mandy Disher has had a hard task selecting the top three winners. The rest of the positions have been decided through public voting.

The 1st prize winner doesn't receive any flowers, but $250 in cash! Congratulations!
1st place

By Martin Hardman.

Judge's comment
A small star shaped beauty bursting forth before us, shouting “I’m here, look at me”. The vibrant colour and strong shape immediately caught my attention, yet there is a a lovely delicate and calm feel to this image too. It has a poetic quality to it and a wonderful sense of movement created by the leaves beautifully framing the the floral heart, a beautiful and joyous capture, I love it.

2nd place
"Calle flowers" by Mystic Light (Piga&Catalano).
Judge's comment
This is so beautifully taken, precise and perfect in all aspects, the exposure, the focus, the composition and the lighting, flawless. I’m drawn to the strong shape of these beautiful blooms that are almost touchable against the wonderful softness and quiet colour palette which works so well here. A scene full of interest and beauty, I could take this in all day.
3rd place
"Autumn flowers" by Roberto Parmiggiani.
Judge's comment
This didn’t jump out at me from the thumbnail view but seen larger revealed the true beauty of this magical shot, the understated colour is perfect, the morning sun backlighting natures jewels creating a wonderful atmosphere, an image showing us great natural beauty at it’s best.
