1st Place - Bob Bierer
First time Camera Corner entrant Bob Bierer waltzed in and won first place on his first try. This exciting stop-action shot of kids enjoying a high-speed ride across the water just screams "summer!" Nice work Bob!
2nd Place - Nancy Lacey
The annual ballooning event in Indianola is one of the hallmarks of the Iowa summer, and Nancy was there to capture it in all it's colorful glory.
3rd Place - Nancy Lacey
Photography firewors can be tricky, but Nancy did yeoman work in getting this stunning image. You can almost hear the booms and feel the humid summer night air around you as you watch the show.
Hon. Mention - Bob Holland
Bob usually has his camera at the ready, and it paid off after a summer thunderstorm when a full rainbow arced across the sky, almost saying, "get your pictures folks, I'm not staying long." Bob obliged!
Hon. Mention - Jeff Mathewson
Jeff's photo shows great timing and shutter skills, freezing the swimmer in mid-stroke. The swimmer's intensity is almost palpable. An arresting photo, to be sure, from a Camera Corner regular.
