The first place winner of the 11th session of Paper Windows, titled "Seeing Red," is "Happy Train" shot by Marlisa Osborne Moura. The picture was of the Steele Creek Park train winding its way through the park.

"This picture reflected the descriptive title, it was just happy, it made you smile when you looked at it," said one of the three judges. "You could just hear the laughter of the children and feel the warm sun while looking at this picture, it was great."

The second place photo was photographed by Matthew Mills and titled "Integrity and Pride." The photo involved a red city fire truck with the emblem on the door. Another judge commented, "This shot was so cool, it had the reflection of the American Flag and a local fire station in the door of the fire truck."

"Autumn's Last Blaze of Glory," the third place photo, was shot by Jeff Levine. His photo was of what appeared to be a maple tree along a body of water. The brilliant red leaves of the tree were reflected in the pool of water. One of the judges commented, "You could see the peacefulness in this picture, you could just get lost in it."
