This month's entries were so much fun to browse; thank you guys for pushing your creative minds and putting some amazingly unique images out there.  I say it every time, but please know that it was hard for me to select just ten images to honor with all of the beautiful work to choose from.  

Coming up soon . . .

November Contest:
You called it.  November's theme asks the traditional questions, "What are you THANKFUL for?"  But don't get too cozy.  We're adding a twist.  To be truly thankful, you require the proper PERSPECTIVE.  For this photograph, play with different perspectives.  As you capture those items for which you're most grateful, can you do so with unique angles?  How high or low can you shoot?  What sort of framing can you play with?  Could you add reflections?  Get creative!  (Running Nov. 18th - 22nd).

September Contest and Photo Challenge

September's challenge was to choose a word and then create a photo that matches it.  A picture is worth 1,000 words, but we wanted to see if you could describe just ONE with an image.  The results were utterly gorgeous.  Also, on a side note, thank you guys for your patience with the new contest format - you're troopers :).

Celebrating Facebook's New Promotions Policy

I'm so excited Facebook has made it easier to run promotions!  To celebrate, I've decided to randomly select three lucky individuals to receive any non-bundle product of their choice.  All fans had to do was leave a comment on my FB post and tell me which product they'd like to receive, and then I used a random number generator to select the winners.  Yay free stuff!

And the winners are . . . . 

Tinajayne Bosland

Tina Ebert 

Leslie Carson 

 Congratulations, ladies!
 In order to claim your prize, you must contact my assistant Melissa at assistant@jessicadrossin.com and tell her which (non-bundle) pack to send you.  Thanks to all who participated!
