Sample Photos:

"Bad": This is a beautiful garden, but the judges can't tell that from this picture. Try taking your photos from several angles to get the best shot. Photographing gardens on a cloudy day will eliminate strong shadows.

"Good": Vibrant colors, indirect sunlight and a large composition show judges what your garden has to offer.
