First Place Winner: Kim Palumbo of Princeton, NJ

“Sailor Sky,” taken in Asbury Park

“The ship pictured is a rather large sculpture that sits on top of Convention Hall in Asbury Park.  I was fortunate to be given a private tour of the building with my central Jersey photography group, Black Glass Gallery, so it is a rarely seen vantage point of this familiar Asbury Park icon.”

Second Place Winner: Elisa Narsu of Basking Ridge, NJ

“Apple Blossoms and Dandelions at Ripple Hill Farm,” taken in spring of 2013 at a small farm in Basking Ridge.

“The farm was not open at the time, but I took these pictures from the road I would travel to take my kids to soccer,” says Narsu. “I always think of how pretty it is when I drive by. When I saw these blossoms that spring, I stopped to snap a few pictures.  It’s hard to believe this bucolic scene is only slightly over an hours drive from New York City. The dandelions are just as pretty as the apple blossoms, I think.”

Third Place Winner: Jan Greco of Bloomfield, NJ

“Garlic,” taken in Bloomfield

“[This photo of garlic growing] is a sure sign of spring made all the sweeter having been planted last fall by Oak View Elementary third graders,” says Greco.

Honorable Mention: Sy Phelan of Dover, NJ

“World of Wings” taken in Teaneck
