The Tennessee Magazine asked our readers to send us images of their pets. Nearly 2,500 entries of your furbabies made judging a difficult task. Your subjects included baby goats, horses, a bearded dragon, a hedgehog and hundreds of dogs and cats.
Judges placed an emphasis on the subject, composition and lighting. The winning photographers showed a skilled grasp of technical fundamentals as well as patience and persistence in pursuing the perfect moment to capture. All the pieces came together in these featured images.
We’d like to thank everyone who sent photographs for the contest. Click here to view additional images awarded honorable mentions.
