The first winner in the Reader SunShot series is Kevin Moore for his photo of Meadowlark Gardens Mill in Mount Vernon, Va. Here is a critique by Bob Hamilton, The Baltimore Sun's director of photography: "I was impressed by the overall quality of the images and the imagination. My winner is Kevin Moore of Perry Hall, whose username is 'crabsandbeer' on baltimoresun.com. His shot is of what appears to be weeping cherry trees next to a bed of daffodils. "This image uses color to full advantage with the deep greens of the daffodils making the yellow flowers pop for the viewer. But what I really love about the picture is how the sinewy black trunk and branches contrast with all that color in the image. "It takes what could have been a routine symmetrical composition and elevates it to a new level."
