The teen winner

My name is Larry Golden. Just want to thank the Township for having this and anyone who thought these photos were worth voting for...Thanks. Actually, I have a question for the Teen winner Kaitlyn Taylor. Was wondering what kind of Photoshop software you used. You are far ahead of anything I can do on that style of software, and find your photo very cool. I have seen that style done before with the black and white, with some color added in. Very nicely done and am just curious as to what you used to get such a great result.

Thanks again

Larry Golden

All very deserving. Well done photo's. That bee close up is something I would never try...don't like getting stung. Very cool photo. I also Love dogs, so that teen winner is a very cool picture. Last, that cabin reminds me of the McCoy house of the Hatfield and McCoys. Very historic looking cabin.
