June Photo Contest: Winners + Honorable Mentions

June's challenge asked you to glean inspiration from other artists. You showcased a great diversity of artist inspirations. It was exciting for me to see the work shared. Thank you so much for participating by submitting your work and by voting for your favorites.

Top Vote Winner (1004):

Our "People's Choice Winner" who received the most votes in the photo contest was Angela Sipes of Angela Sipes Photography with her entry "Fiery Field" I actually just shot and edited this before the contest.  Angela says, "I wanted to find a pretty field and lots of open skies to use the cloud overlays on.  This was definitely inspired by you, Jessica Drossin.  I definitely borrowed some of the depth and drama that is your amazing work."  

(P.S. From me: Thank you. I am extraordinarily honored.)

Product used: "Stormy Sky" Cloud Overlay

  NOTE: Contestants are allowed to win the "People's Choice" portion of the vote contest only once.

Judge's Choice Winner:
