And the 10 Tamron Summer Photo Contest FINALISTS Are...

We recently partnered with Tamron USA to host the Steve's Digicams Summer Photo Contest and, wow... Folks, color me impressed with your shutter-skillz. So many of our readers are talented photographers, it was nearly impossible to narrow the field down to just ten finalists.

But choose we did and two of these photographers are going each going to walk away with a brand new Tamron lens -- a Tamron 100-400mm F/4.5-56. Di VC USD ($799 MSRP) to FIRST PLACE, and a Tamron SP 45mm F/1.8 Di VC USD ($399 MSRP) for the RUNNER UP.

Here are our ten finalists (presented in alphabetical-title order):

"Cradle" by Michel Verdoot (Camera Unknown)

"Golden Larches" by Simon Wu (Nikon D800)

"It's All Connected" by James E. Brock II (Canon EOS 6D Mark II)

"Reflecting on Summer" by Ifran Chaudry (Nikon D610)

"Spiral Design" by Dee Langevin (Canon EOS 6D)

"The Bridge" by Tom Briggs (Canon EOS 6D)

"The Gate to the Great Beyond" by Bob Vishneski (Nikon D750)

"Tree Tunnel" by Teani Parker (Sony A6500)

"Valencia" by Angel Ros Die (Canon EOS 6D Mark II)

"Winter Wanderlust" by Gabriella Giannuzzi (Nikon D3200)

Who will win????

Stay tuned until next week when we announced the two winners and make sure to let us know on Twitter or Facebook if you have any favorites!

Oh, and don't feel bad if you did win and don't disappear... a little birdy told me we might be hosting a similar contest or giveaway later this summer. More soon!
