Top 10 Images of the Quarter

Howdy, folks. I know you’ve been biting your nails in nervous anticipation for our announcement for the Photo of the Quarter award. All of us want to know who wins the whole kit and caboodle for the contest. Our Facebook groups, over the last 3 months, have been stuffed with an awesome-looking photos. Going back through the shots shared over the last quarter was a lot of fun for me. By that I mean I was working really hard and efficiently, of course.

Did want to point out that the shots listed below are just a few of the great-looking shots shared online. We are continuing to host these photo-sharing contests AND we’ll make sure the purse is a prize worthy of the title “Awesome,” too. If I were you, I’d keep sharing. So, head over to our Exposure and Snap Art Facebook groups and show us your best work.

I’ve been thinking of entering under a pen name, but I can’t think of anything catchy-er than El Tiburón–which everyone already knows is me, the video jerk-weed. ;-(

Below are the top 10 images shared during the last quarter. Congrats to all of you!
