The photos attached to this post were considered finalist contenders but were not eligible to win prizes because either they were created by ASP Community moderators or these photographers have won sometime in the past 6 months or 3 times total already. However, because these photos would go into the Finalists pool otherwise, I wanted them to get recognition, and so these are our Honorable Mentions. Well done! (photos are cropped for the purpose of the mosaic – you can view the originals in the event linked above)

Stay tuned to see who the fantastic finalists are – we’ll announce them soon!
