Congrats Jim!

Thanks! It was a fun October morning. I dropped Heidi off on a floating cottage where she climbed up to the second floor and shot photos while I made several passes up and down the river. You can see one of our dogs in the cockpit, the other likes to ride in the cabin, under the dinette table. We had about 300 photos to sort through and choose from. I'm already thinking of ideas for next year's shoot!

Hey that 47' commander photo just made up my mind whether or not to tint the windows and windshield on my boat. That really looks good !

Jim,

Being the author of the guide Shooting Great Commander Photos it was a pleasure looking through the collection of photos you submitted to the contest.  The dog looking out on the starboard side adds that extra twist which make this shot different as well as the choice of day of shooting. All those autumn colours are not usually found in boating photos!

I don't know if you read the guide but your photos and the way you planned your photo shoot clearly illustrates the guidelines provided. As I wrote in there: if you abide to the guidelines you are going to get great shots. Some of the other top contestants carried similar signs of good planning and camera handling.

For other members curious about how to shoot good photos, here are the main tips again:

Yes, I read your guide after last year's contest, so I had an idea what would work. I had planned to do our shoot earlier in the season, but then the foliage would not have been as colorful as it was. We just got lucky with that.

Congrats,lovely boat!

Congrats to the winners. All are beautiful pics. Of course the subject matter is always beautiful. I think the designers got some divine inspiration when they drew the lines of these boats. Dave
