Results: Dgrin Mini-Challenge #272 - BOATS
I had a very hard time judging this mini and keeping to the guidelines I set for myself. I think it is hard to get a fresh and new perspective on boats - for one thing it is hard to get close enough to them, and their surroundings are often somewhat featureless. So I have picked my favorite from each person's entries more or less in order they were submitted
Sherry the Staten Island Ferry is just such a glowing statement that I can't fault it on size. But I can't pass up the last party boat with the splatter decoration
Joyce, although I don't often like wrecked boats (I find them sad and upsetting), I can't pass up Nomad in a sea of grass
Jo - I loved the photo of the little sailboat towing the dinghy on the flat calm Puget Sound
Sara I did like the photo of the winch - it was a welcome difference in perspective
Moose, in spite of the Air Force joke (my daughter was in the AF), I just loved "After the Storm" It is like a beacon of warmth on a vast sea
Lillian my favorite was the canoes with the overarching trees and the soft sunlight
Kurt I have a hard time picking between Captain Jack and Scooting Around in Maine. I love shrimp boats, but the other one looks like such FUN
Pieter all of yours were great - I enjoyed the 'boathouse' one too. My favorite was Five in a Row
Peter all of yours were terrific and it was hard to pick but I loved the lonely little rowboat at low tide
Mongoose, I thought the sailboat photo was just stunning. I don't often like the very saturated colors but in this case I thought it was just right
David - Rush is a really different and nice perspective. But I liked your "extra" better than all the rest.
sapphire I loved your little flower decorated tugboat.
So here are the results
the lonely little rowboat at low tide
And HM to everyone else.
