Photo of the Month | 10th Month

1st Place | Photo of the Month | 10th Month

Misty Morning Duck, by Ronnie Glover
Photography took a backseat while Ronnie obtained his college degree. After graduation, he purchased his first camera but was unable to produce the images that he saw in his mind. He then took a few continuing education classes to learn the technical aspects of the camera and realized there was so much more to learn about photography. So Ronnie enrolled in the professional program at Southeastern Center for the Arts in Atlanta. The school was operated by Jeanne & Neil Chaput de Saintonge, who currently operate Rocky Mountain School of Photography. He spent 14 years living in Alaska and this gave him unbelievable opportunities to experience nature and capture many images. Ronnie’s photograph Misty Morning Duck in the category of Artistic Photography scored 74 (Value 13.5, Clarity 14, Composition 18.5, Style 14, and Skill 14) from our international jury of 5. The number of Tweets and Facebook shares, StumbleUpon Organic Views boosted the popularity of the photograph, raising its score to 8.191 from social media (Facebook Share 1.54, Tweets 4.9, StumbleUpon Organic View 1.751, Comments 0), and in total 82.191, the highest score in this competition for the 10th Month. This photograph is the winner of Photograph of the Month – 10th Month, 1st Place.
