  • YOUTH CATEGORY 3rd Place – Julia Armstrong, Florence Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: How ingenious is this!  The fact that you took the time to explore one of many photographic possibilities reminds me of when I first discovered photography in pre-digital days.  Go for it, Julia!

  • YOUTH CATEGORY 2nd Place – Rebecca Smith Barrier Bay
