Exotic photos top this month’s photo contest

Doug Lentz's photo of a Mosque in Brunei won first place in the Low Down Lens Photo Contest

Doug Lentz's 1st place photo

This month’s theme of “N is for November” may not have been the easiest choice for Hills shutterbugs. The Low Down Lens online photo contest had fewer entries and fewer votes than usual, perhaps owing to the limitations of the theme.

But the stricter guidelines brought out some creative, and exotic, entries, many of far away places.

Winner of the LD Lens photo contest as voted by the public is Doug Lentz of Edelweiss who received 80 votes for “National Mosque, Brunei”.

In second place with 50 votes is Ottawa’s Luke Myers for his jubilant photo “Nepalese school children”; and in third Michael Stevens of Edelweiss with 19 votes “November sunset over Wakefield”.

The LowDownOnline.com received only 17 entries this month, which professional photographer Harry Nowell pared down to a Top Ten. The public voted then voted online.

New contest

The Low Down has opened up the playing field again this month, with the theme of “The Great Outdoors” (not like any of us Gatineau Hillers care about that).
