You girls and guys made judging difficult but after looking again, and again, and again, and ....... I decided that I just need to make a verdict. It's my personal and subjective choice and I thank all of you for entering, every picture was worthwhile!

Travelways, especially liked your third, because the public and the art were so "intertwined"

Photografeeling, nice shot and it's a pity you only entered one. I was waiting for the one where he spit out the flames to follow on to this one

williaes, nice play of light in the first two, well done!

grandmaR, the third is priceless, so many6 layers of "art"

Earache, what a stunning set, all 3. But it's really the awkward look of the lady in the third that grabbed me most

BMW Kurt, fun set, all three. I find especially the first a nice selection of what looks like a larger mural

sarasphotos, also a strong set where for me the second takes the cake. Very well composed and a nice contrast between the pillars and the Eiffel tower

GSWayne, you certainly won the caption contest with your first. Also like the second a lot, but a pity you cut off the hand on the right.

jwear, I had difficulty finding the "public art" in the first two, but very nice shots anyway. The third is fun as well.

Cavalier, strong set. The architecture looks like a gnome hat. The third is nice as well, nicely isolated from what seems a busy place

Tony Cooper, very well done and funny! I don't mind composites like these at all

DonRicklin, all three nice, but the first is special the way you framed it. Fits very well together like this

CHANDLERJA, great B&W conversions those first two. Also the composition of the first works very well.

OrvSal, I really like the tight framing of the first one, the artist really blends in well with her art.

And now ............. drumroll .................. the results

HM 1: OrvSal

HM2: GrandmaR


Second: sarasphotos

FIRST PLACE and WINNER: Earache with "Gallery Art ~ Art can be, sometimes, well... awkward"

Congrats Eric, and looking forward to what you have in mind for us for the next mini challenge.

    Congratulations Eric, That is a great story telling photo. It has a character, a subject and a verb all wrapped in one small frame. The others were great as well. This was fun! I will have to watch an participate more often.

    Was so glad to see some folks return to the Mini, and some new folks also... it's always better when lots of Dgrinners jump-in!!
