It would be interesting to see the amount of votes each one of the pictures received. Can you post that with all the pictures? Thank you.
They are all beautiful – congratulations!
What a pleasure to find someone who thinks tohrugh the issues
There are some doubles in this, like the one of the white barn in the snow and the “railtrail landscape.” How would you like us to vote on these?
Thanks for pointing this out. I removed those two doubles. Please let me know if you notice others. You can vote however, I’ll average the votes between the two doubles.
This would be easier if the names weren’t on each of the photos.
Gorgeous shots all. Columbia County is the Napa of the East.
Where are the photos by Hiroshi Kazo? I love MANY of these–but his peony close-up was by far my favorite. I will look again–I got up to page 6 and didn’t see it.
Not all of the photos from the Spencertown Academy show are in the online gallery. Not everyone submitted a digital version of their photos.
What is the prize? Are there mutliple prizes? I note that many of the photos are artistic photography by professional artists. Are there 2 categories; one for professional artists and one for photographers?
The only prize is the recognition at having won the Audience Award. There is only one audience award.
I moderate a group on Flickr of photos taken in Columbia County. Photographers should feel free to add their Columbia County photos to it, and others should come by to take a look. You can find the group here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/cocony/
WOW!! Hard to choose “the best” from this group of splendid pictures. I’ve decided, even tho I appreciate the effects, to eliminate the ones with any gimmicks, like the color changes and the diagonal pictures. They show a nice esthetic and imagination but since the subject is landscape i’m focusing on the more natural examples. It will take a while for study, for sure.
I can not speak for the other photographers included in this collection. However, allow me to assure you that my photo BLUE DOOR has not in any way been manipulated or enhanced. In fact, what drew me to this spot at the base of Mercer Mountain on CR 5 in Canaan, NY, is the power of its graphic elements.
In my artist’s statement I write: … my eye is drawn to pattern, light and juxtaposition of space to object. Eliminating extraneous details before taking a picture, I edit as I compose…
In this day of computer manipulation and digital wizardry, my photos — mostly uncropped and using only natural light — are a throwback to a less complex time. My work is about the power of a line, a shape and/or an image in reality; it is not about creating a new reality.

What do the stars mean under the photos?
The stars are the current audience rating of the photograph.
It would be wonderful to also know if any of the photographs are available for use/purchase.
Interested buyers can contact CLC and we’ll forward their inquiry to the photographers.
Love B. Doktor’s cows–so beautifully peaceful and innocent in the early morning light.
