Such a huge variety of images. How do you judge this? I had thought I would choose from two vague categories of entries, photo-realistic and artsy. But most of the photos defy such categorization. So I changed my mind and the photos showed below were chosen by the age-old eye-candy criterion, i.e., which ones I liked looking at the best.

Honorable mentions (in order added):

As I said in the thread, I could see this selling here on the island (send me the high-rez version, and I'll share the profits with you :wink). Wonderful illustration.

Great job everybody.

    I really enjoyed seeing all of these entries. I personally do not have very good PS skills, so I found this quite inspirational, such talent here! The last two weeks, I had some curve balls thrown at me, so my focus and time has been elsewhere, but I plan to still try and work on this when I get the chance. Congratulations Joyceclap.gif very well done, I too could see this selling well!
    All of the entries I felt were great in there own way, so congrats to all!

    I did some work on it but it just did not fly for me.

    Looks like Sean was still in a Pink Floyd State of mind, very cool

    Congratulations, Joyce! I loved your entry! thumb.gif

    And thanks, Greg, for the competition. This was fun. I was blown away by all the creativity everyone exhibited--and I learned a lot from reading the descriptions of how the pp was done.

    Now...can't wait to see what the next competition holds...

    WOW JAG this is awesome! I love your processing.. So inspiring. I've been delving into some more radical processing myself lately, so this is an inspiration. Great job. Congrats to all the honorable mentions, and 2nd up! You all rock!!

    Wow! Thank you!! So many great entries, I am sure this was difficult to judge. And thanks to Greg for a great challenge! I am glad we got to try this. As I stated before...I seem to sell more of my artistic work than I do actual sooc photos. Greg if your serious then PM me and we can work something out.

    Ok...I will think up something for 106 and post it by this evening.
