Photos of the Week 9/9/13

We at RIT NPPA have decided after a long time of holding a Picture of the Week contest to bring a new tradition to our chapter. Often our members make the vote a tough choice, presenting us  with many strong photographs to choose from and too many  times deserving frames are left out in our selective edit of first and second place. Therefore we will begin posting not only the picture of the week and the runner-up for picture of the week, but also any additional photographs that our chapter feels merit recognition.  We present for you our first installment of Pictures of the Week.

Congratulations to Sarah Ann Jump for winning first place and to Daniel Witkowski for placing second.
