Gina Farnell’s photo of the view from her kitchen window of tomatoes, chicken and cow “was interesting – made me feel good just looking at it,” said judge Pauline Kerr.

We received many wonderful photos of beautiful fall foliage and other signs of autumn. Nine QCT readers sent us a total of 18 photos to admire. It was a difficult choice for our judge (assistant copy editor Pauline Kerr) but the following people have been chosen to receive one of five $25 Tim Hortons gift certificates!

Best Photo: Joanie Hicks Lévesque’s road through the autumn leaves, published in the Oct. 14 edition, had everything – good composition, good balance and lovely colours.

Honourable mention goes to the following, in no particular order:
Efraim Gavrilovich’s boutique display, published in the Oct. 21 edition, seemed to sum up autumn in a single photo, with a spectacular variety of colours.

Lucie Bouchard’s photo of the Saint-Alban Dam, also published in the Oct. 21 edition, was not just pretty and filled with colour, it was interesting – pale grey concrete and stone made a nice contrast with the warm colours of the leaves.

Gina Farnell and Christy Ruggiero’s photos, published on this page, also received honourable mentions.

All photos submitted for this contest (one per entrant) will be posted along with this article on our website.

Christy Ruggiero’s photo of a single fallen leaf is nicely composed, very crisp and clear, against a rough, dark background – well done!
