First Place – Autumn Waters

Nature- First Place

This is a picture of the Dan River that was taken April 24th while me and my family were fishing together.

Second Place – Adilynn Doub

Nature - Second Place

This is a windmill that my family and I inherited from my great grandfather and it is very special to us. As our reminder of him, my mom fixed it up and it has been here ever since. When I see this photo it makes me feel closer to my great grandfather, and all the memories that I have of him and will cherish forever.

Third Place – Shepherd Moorefield

Nature - Third Place

After learning about depth of field, I wanted to find something small in nature and make it the center of attention. This is a blossom on a Plum tree in our front yard.

Fourth Place – Brooke Kalish

This picture is of my pet guinea pig enjoying the spring grass.


First Place – Shepherd Moorefield

People First

I wanted to take a photo of people so I chose my mom and dad. I thought it would be neat to focus on their hands. This shows their togetherness. I also wanted it to be in black and white so I simply turned down the saturation and I turned up the contrast.

First Place – Adilynn Doub

B&W First

This is my little brother, Hudson, and he is one year old. When I see this photo, it melts my heart and it shows how sweet and curious he can be. This moment reminds me of how, when I was little, I would love to find a field of dandelions, and blow every last one. It reminds me to stop and enjoy the simple things.
