The winner for October is Country Kitchen, by Vicki McLead of Ida Grove, IA. It is the Star Color First Place winner.
The judge, Theresa Hood, says “This image hits all the right buttons. The subject matter, while simple, is composed beautifully. The textures of wood and potatoes work together nicely. The tones are soothing and peaceful. The lighting is soft and even and the texture of the table in the immediate foreground sets the stage. This image has a classic and ageless feeling to it.”
