Oh great, I rush home so I could post the winner of the photo contest before 12nn, and within 5 minutes of getting home, the rotating brownout hits. So it’s a couple of hours delayed, but here it is. We announced this morning who the winner was, but this is the first time we could show you the picture. And so, getting the Canon Powershot A480, the winner is…Gem So!!! Woot!!!
The Winning Photo
Sent by: Gem So
Taken in Mauban, Quezon, just last March 2010, this photo had everything we were looking for. It’s definitely bursting with the summer theme and the accompanying fun that comes with it, and The Morning Rush and 93.1 taking equal billing with the subject. People who like taking jump shots would have an idea of how this was done. It was just done so effortlessly, that he made it look like he was floating on air. Delle was incredulous as to how this photo was taken. She said she doesn’t even see foot marks on the sand where he jumped from. She was asking assurance from me that it wasn’t just photoshopped. We were both infected by the sheer joy of the picture, it made us feel like we were part of their barkada, just goofing about, taking pictures on the sand, which basically encompasses, for many of us sun-lovers at least, what summer should be. So congratulations again to Gem for winning the camera, a very much deserved win, in our humble opinion, of course. The decision was unanimous, no argument between us. We should do this more often! Hehehe, it was fun…
Again, thank you so much to EVERYONE who joined the photo challenge! We didn’t expect such a strong response and were happily amazed at just how good a lot of the photos were. It was heartwarming how you guys took time and a lot of effort to join the contest. We promise to come up with other stuff for you in the near future. Just to give you a peek at how fun Gem’s photos were, let me post some of the other photos she sent in, all fabulously fun:
And another serious contender, probably highest on the creativity scale:
They put the hermit crab on the paper with the RX 93.1 written on it, until it came out to peek, then took the shot. Genius! So as you can see, even just choosing among her shots was difficult enough, with so many good photos. Again, congrats to our winner Gem!!!
