BEST OF SHOW – Young Buck
Photo by Karen Kader, Omaha

With more than 2,500 entries, the 2020 Nebraskaland Magazine Photo Contest drew a record number of stunning images from Nebraska photographers in the categories of Wildlife, Flora, Scenic and Recreation.

This year’s Best of Show winner, “Young Buck” by Karen Kader of Omaha, was shot at Chalco Hills Recreation Area. She used Lightroom as her post-image software, adding shadow and accessing the program’s color sliders to accentuate the photo.

We thank everyone who participated and look forward to seeing more of your great photographs in next year’s contest.
Keep shooting.
