Foto Friday #53 Giveaway Winners Announced |Patriotic

This is Kim with Mom Tried It.  Lori asked me to be the guest judge for Foto Friday since it was the anniversary.  I was honored to do so.  I have loved watching Lori's passion for photography take her to new levels.   Lori is the perfect host for Foto Friday.  Oh, Lori has some great stuff for giveaways, too!

The submissions were really fantastic and knocked my socks off as I opened each link.  You guys are really talented.  I really loved so many shots, like the dragonfly from Sarah Halstead, the barn from Kristy at Life-N-Reflection, but my favorite had to be Kim's from Picking Poppies.

This photo looks like it should be on a wall (my wall).  I love the overall mood of it.  The post processing really makes it stand out as a piece of art.  Truly wonderful!!

Keep up the great work and get out there with your cameras.  Continue to share your photos with the world.  You never know how you will touch and move people.  You may just inspire the next person to shake the dust off of their camera start their own journey.  :)

Well there you have it folks our winners for the giveaway!
I mean seriously,there really were wonderful submissions from everyone!
To Kim, Sarah, and Kristy, you should have or will have an email shorty, and thank you so much for joining the giveaway!
