You submitted 152 photos for our special "New England Beginnings" contest last month, co-sponsored by the Globe Magazine. And now it's time to announce the winners.
The top four finishers are published in the Jan. 17 issue of the magazine and are printed below. Those four photographers are awarded prizes: The First Place finisher will receive a $100 gift card; Second Place, $50, and Third and Fourth Places, $25 each.

Judge Chin Wang, design director of the magazine, chose another six photos as Honorable Mentions. All 10 winning images are in the gallery linked at the bottom.


FIRST PLACE - $100

Conservator of photographs and works on paper

First ferry of the day leaving Vineyard Haven for Woods Hole, taken in October, 2009. The photographer says: "I like the early morning. It is quiet, and people are just beginning to stir and start their days. I like 'listening' to this awakening."



SECOND PLACE - $50

Project manager for a financial investment services firm

Taken in March, 2008. The photographer says: "It's a bit cliche, but the baseball season to me (and I'm sure for many others) has always been a sort of barometer that we have endured another New England winter and of finally reaching the beginning of spring, a new season."




THIRD PLACE - $25

Mental health counselor

Self-portrait taken at Nahant Beach in July, 2009 when Anelise was 36 weeks pregnant. She says: "I held the camera with one hand and shot down in the sand after I caught a glimpse of my large shadow and thought it would make an interesting and nontraditional 'belly shot' ... Becoming a mother in August was the most life-changing 'beginning' I experienced."



FOURTH PLACE - $25

Payroll administrator for a restaurant chain

A blue heron searches for breakfast on Barrells Millpond in York Harbor. The photographer says: "I thought this was the quintessential New England scene: Sunrise on the coast of Maine, the common sight of the blue heron, and fantastic light. My interest in photography is primarily landscapes and scenics, but I always keep my eyes open for subjects of any kind in great light."

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
