Well shutterbugs, we are officially impressed. Just when we thought we’d be wading in predictable old cherry-blossom pics, you go and send us hundreds of color-drenched, completely modern interpretations of September’s “flora and fauna” photo contest. Our judges spent all afternoon whittling down the options to six finalists, and we’re finally ready to have you pick the winner. See our favorites up close in our finalists’ gallery, then vote for your pick below. The photograph with the most votes as of noon on Thursday, September 30, will appear in the November issue of The Washingtonian.
Please remember to play nice! The rules allot one vote per person, and we monitor the polls closely. If we catch voting irregularities for a particular photograph, it’ll be disqualified.
To help keep this contest fair, we’ve elected to use an IP-address-based poll. This means that if you’re voting from an office or network setting, not everybody in that setting will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you’ll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computers.
