Thank you for all your entries. This month for judging in both the April contest and the Winter contest, I first got opinions from several individuals and photographers, and then the top pics were judged by a professional photographer, Lew Wurdeman. Lew is owner of 360 Minnesota Virtual Tour Photography (http://www.360minnesota.com)and Photgraph Events (http://www.photographevents.com). He is also member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Photographic Society of America.

The runners up for the Winter contest were the snowy pines with the dramatic blue sky by Ethan G. Knuti, and "First Snow" by Ken Hupila. The winner of the Winter contest was "Hoar Frost" by Ken "FinnBay" Hupila. Congratulations Ken!

Thank you everyone for your wonderful entries.
