    Greg,
    I really, really, really like 2 and 3. Did I mention that I really like 2 & 3? Because I do. Laughing.gif

    And The Winner Is
    1st Thank You ALL for participating in this "Mini".
    As always with our members here you all present beautiful images worth looking at again and again!

    I will say that as a whole many of the images seemed a bit more "Litteral" then "Implied". :D

    HM's should go to everybody but....................

    ghinson's #2 image, it's got everything a sunset needs to make you want to be
    in the scene!

    Liz's #1 image, what can I say (safely :D) edgy, gritty, the implications are scary but just a
    tad to litteral!

    OK

    Runner Up is.................

    kdotaylor #2 image, Oh what that look implies, it good be Heaven or Hell and everything in
    between. I enjoy revisiting this again and again and remembering my own implied looks, Thank You mwink.gif

    And the Winner Is !!!!

    KevXman #2 image, Seven Ladies Resting.
    this one spoke to me most loudy as to the "Theme"
    I could look at it all day and come up with another implied connection/story etc.
    I will say that I believe it is not the strongest technical image presented here.

    I hope that make sense and that I did OK.

    Thanks again for particpating.
    Congrats KevXman and Good Luck with #139. ylsuper.gif

    Wow! A very unexpected pleasure. Thanks Benjamin. You are right though when you say that this image is not the strongest technically. It was taken with a little pocket Casio and is straight out of the camera. I didn't take the time to really set up the shot as I didn't want them to know what I was doing until it was too late. In fact all three images that I submitted were take with the same camera and with the same "surprise" method. I got to spend a week in Italy back in 2007 and all I had at the time was this little P&S Casio. I have taken the time to clean up some of the shots from that trip and they do appear in my "For Sale" gallery but I do not have sharing turned on for that gallery so I had to pull these from my gallery of travel/vacation photos and I don't spend much time processing those. Here is a smaller version of the ladies just to show what I did do in post. I call it Consiglio Citadina (Town Council)

    272297450_XQxJS-S-1.jpg

    Thanks again everyone. I am always humbled when I get a mention in comparison to all the great images submitted here on DGrin. I was not expecting this win so I will need some time to come up with a theme. I will try to start the next Mini tomorrow, Monday at the latest.
