Friends and neighbors,
It gives me great pleasure to announce the winners of the Ymir Photo Challenge. I issued an unusual A&S challenge at Ymir. This was a contest that was not judged until after the event!
Most importantly, does the picture transport the viewer back in time?
Is it as free as possible from duct tape, cars, sunglasses, and fencing masks?
Is it a good photograph? Is it well composed, well exposed, and so on?
Does it show the SCA in a positive light? (I can think of a number of photographs that might score well on the first two criteria, but not so well on the third. A pine tree, for example.)
In case a tie-breaker is needed, I'll pick the one I like best.
First Prize: $20 cash: Steven Weymark.
Runner Up: Muirgheal inghean ui Ogain.
Second Runner Up: Steven Weymark.
Three cheers for all our photographers! And, thank you for keeping those cameras discreetly under wraps.
