And Our Tamron Portrait Contest Finalists Are...

Last month, Steve's Digicams partnered with Tamron USA to host a portrait-themed photography contest. Open to both human and animal subjects, each entrant was competing for a chance to win one Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD ($799 MSRP), a fun and affordable portrait zoom lens that show off in full here in our article, Tamron 35-150mm: Is This The Only Portrait Lens You Need?

After a few hundred terrific entries from our talented readership, it was terribly difficult to whittle the entrants down to 10 FINALISTS. But whittle down we did. Here, in photo-title alphabetical order, we present and congratulate our 10 finalists:
