Lightning in a Bottle: Capturing Summer-A Photo Contest-Summer 2010

The results are in for the contest, but before the big reveal why not take a moment to meet the judges (you may want to visit their sites and give them a shout out), then have another look at the entries and see who took each shot. But if you are the sort of person who eats dessert first, the results are at the bottom.
