DMBLGiT: The Winners!

Finally – the winners of May’s edition of ‘Does My Blog Look Good in This?’. A long time coming for a whole host of reasons including a judge pulling out and one of my degree essays needing completing.

The winners are ranked as the top 3 overall, followed by the top from each category (excluding those already in the overall top 3). Since some of those shared equal points, some share joint positions, as detailed below.

A truly excellent bunch of photographs made even better by the short amount of time I gave you all to submit them. So congratulations to all involved!

Overall Winners

In joint first position is the excellent ‘Spring in A Bowl’ taken by Anita from Married With Dinner. This photograph also scored joint highest for Aesthetics, above the category winner (see the rules for more info).

And the other half of the first position belongs to the photograph below, the excellent ‘Tropical Island Salmon’ taken by Jaden from Steamy Kitchen. This also had the joint highest score for Aesthetics. Excellent work!

Second position then, lies with this delicious little number from Melody (aka evinrude) from Small Talk called ‘Stuffed Mushrooms With Grated Parmesan’, which was taken with a Nikon D100. This is one of my personal favourites.

Third position is another joint win, with one half going to Ilva from Lucillian Delights with the interesting sounding ‘Saffron Yoghurt with Spicy Honey.
