And the winner is…

Wow! You all take some pretty fabulous photos! We asked you to send us a photo that shows what PSTA means in your life and your community. So many great entries were submitted to our photo contest it was hard to choose the winners, but luckily we had a panel of experts to help. Before we announce the winners, please help us thank our judges. Here’s a little about each of them:

Lorrie Lykins – Lorrie has written the Ask Dr. Delay column for the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times) since 2005, answering reader questions about the highways and byways of the Tampa Bay area. She is a graduate of Eckerd College and Queens University of Charlotte and is a member of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists. Follow her on twitter: @AskDrDelay

Michael C. Weimar – Michael C. Weimar is an editorial and commercial photographer based in the Tampa Bay area. He specializes in sports and portraiture. His past assignments have found him at the Superbowl, Final Four, and BCS National Championship. A link to his work can be found at

Emanuel Ponteriero – Besides having his own professional photography business, Emanuel conducts major seminars throughout Florida. His “Get the Picture” instructional videos are among the top ten on Amazon, and he is a monthly guest on Studio 10 Connects, a Tampa TV program.

These kind folks donated their time to judge our contest and we really appreciate their expertise.
