Our eleventh annual Photo Contest wrapped up this week and as always, the entries were stunning. Our talented Dave's Garden members out-did themselves once again and we invite you to take a look at some of the winning entries, along with links to the runners-up.

water featuresEach year, Dave's Garden members anticipate the annual Photography Contest and this time, it was no different. Our 11th installment of this long-running feature drew thousands of entries from around the world. The membership voted on their favorites and the winners are featured in our 2012 Dave's Garden calendar. Each member receives a year's subscription to DG and a copy of the calendar. The entry with the most votes overall, is featured on the cover. This year, that honor goes to member 'YAMATO', Susumu Kishihara.

This image was the winner in the Water Features & Water Gardens category and the image with highest vote total. Check out the full-size image and the runners-up in this category by clicking the category title. View the other winners and runners-up by clicking on the category title under each image.

All of the winning images are included in our 2012 Dave's Garden Calendar and you can purchase your own copy at this link from Zazzle. We want to thank each and every member who entered and we hope that all of you enjoy seeing the range of talent we have here at DG. We have some fantastic photographers and everyone deserves a huge round of applause!
