LIMA — The Lima News 21st annual Amateur Photo Competition winners are announced.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 21 years, and photos just keep getting better,” said Craig J. Orosz, photo editor for The Lima News. “We were down 53 entries this year, but we had some fantastic photographs. Staff members from the Toledo Blade judged this year and were amazed by the outstanding images. The Blade staff did a lot of bantering back and forth, and after all of that, the best of the best emerged.”

Dave Zapotosky, chief photographer for The Blade, wrote: “(Best of Show) is a quiet image, one that makes you feel like you are walking a trail through large oak trees in autumn. The quality of light on the edges of the leaves, and the vibrant colors in the frame are visually arresting. The image is sharp as a tack, and the composition is in the rule of thirds, which most professional photographers recognize as the best compositional element in a picture. Great shot amateur photographer! Keep up the good work!”

Every photo entered in the contest will be on display at ArtSpace/Lima and, later, St. Rita’s Medical Center.
