Nicholas Edens won $500 in the Smithsonian magazine's fourth annual photo contest. The West Toledo man used a Canon 350 digital camera to photograph a white lion standing on a rock at the Toledo Zoo in August. He made modest alterations, darkening the edges and softening the overall image. Winning in the category "altered images," Edens' photo was one of six winners from a field of 8,447 entries. It is printed in the June issue of the magazine and will be exhibited at the Smithsonian Castle July 1 to Aug. 15.
