Flowers never looked so good!    Calling all you non-professional photogs out there!!

Could you use a little cash? Of course you could.  I mean, who couldn’t nowadays, right?  Then I think I may have a fun way to earn it! And it’s kinda easy…

Yamagami’s Nursery is having a contest for the best picture of  flowers.

The contest is basically three stages.

Stage 1: You have until June 26th to upload your best image to the Yamagami’s Photo Contest Page by submitting them to: Flowers@YNurseryNews.com.  You may upload only three submissions.  It could be close-ups of the flower or a wide angle shot of a display of them, just as long as they are the focal point of the image.  Keep in mind, there may be a brief delay getting you pictures to the proper page, so get them in at least three days before the deadline.

Stage 2: Beginning June 27th and thru July 23rd, the public will begin to vote on which images they like the best.  You can find the competing images HERE.   There are some amazing images.  However, don’t let that discourage you from putting your best foot into the contest.  Just as nature’s created millions and millions of beautiful images, your creativity and uniqueness can capture something that most people have never seen.  Challenge yourself to see beyond the stunning colors and the brilliance in the patterns.  The top ten images will then be submitted to a panel of judges who will then award the cash prizes.

Step 3: Beginning August 18th, you can view the images when you stop on by the nursery as they will be on display.  On August 27, Yamagami’s will host an awards show and the prizes for the Top 3 will be given to the photographers with the best images.  All of the Top Ten finalists will receive a small Yamagami’s Nursery gift certificate.

Please read the complete detailed rules before entering and best of luck to all you picture snapping photogs out there.

Sadly, employees of Yamagami’s and their families are not eligible to enter.

Here are a couple of my fave nature shots that I’ve taken.  What do you love to capture with the lens?  Share where do you like to go for that inspiration?
