RESULTS: MINI_CHALLENGE # 286 : The colour white in a colour photo
Thanks for all the entries, it has not been easy to pick the winner (but I have succeeded) however I will first start with some individual comments on all the entries
@sarasphotos, the first and last are "most" white, I especially like the last (cloudy peak) because of the contrast between the fluffy white clouds and the hard white of the snow on the mountain
@Cavalier, especially the light in the second and third is nice, maybe a bit more sunshine on the flowers in the second would have helped, so your third is my favourite from this set
@grandmaR, very diverse examples and especially the first and second are very strong. The first for the light/shadow play and the second for the luminous and tranquil mood of that bedroom
@JAG, a strong set with great diversity, Especially the backlight behind the splash in the second came out extremely well
@jwear, great catch in the first one, in the second I'm not sure how much the tree adds, I probably would have liked to see more or not at all. The third is a nice photo but probably more "yellow" than "white"
@StueveShots, a contageous smile in the first portrait, especially with the missing teeth , The second and third are probably more "light grey" than "white", but still good entries
@bfluegie, nice flower studies, although the slightly damaged petals in the second are a pity. The third (dandelion) is wonderful!
@DavidRGillespie, three beautiful white flowers, all expertly captured. Especially the begonia with the dew drops has something special
@lkbart, two more great flower shots, but the cat takes the cake for me
@slpollett, the hot springs are a nice composition and the pear blossoms so delicate. The last one from the Moody gardens is a bit harshly lit and the dirt spoils the beauty of the flower a bit for me
@sapphire73, great set, even though they don't compete for the prizes. Especially the first with the tree shadow has it for me, but the flower is very well done as well.
First a few HM's
These are the lighthouse bedroom by @grandmaR and the White washed waves by @JAG
Third place goes to
Just Dandy! Dandelion Fluff by @bfluegie
Second place is for
Cloudy peak by @sarasphotos
As mentioned picking a winner was hard, but after a lot of thinking it became:
Tow-headed Flower Girl by @StueveShots
Congrats to all and especially @StueveShots for the win and looking forward to what you come up with as the next challenge, at least I know I don't have to pick the winner, because that's hard work and I need a break now
Great mini, Pieter. And some wonderful entries. Congrats to all the placers and especially @StueveShots for a great portrait in white.

I really enjoyed all of the entries in this mini, Pieter - what a great topic. Thanks so much for the 2nd! Congrats also to @bfluegie for 3rd and especially to @StueveShots for the fantastic portrait in white. For me the clear winner!
A great idea for a mini - one that I would not have thought of. Insightful comments which are one of the best parts of the mini. Very well done everyone. And thank you for the HM -
This was a great mini. Thanks for the comments and congratulations to @bfluegie and @sarasphotos for third and second, and especially to @StueveShots for the first place. I didn't envy you @pegelli having to select among the the entries. I think you made great choices
Great running of a challenge Pieter! Congrats to @StueveShots for the win and congrats to the runner ups! Thank you @pegelli for you comments too!
What a great mini! I really enjoyed all the entries and I didn't envy you @pegelli having to pick winners from among them. Big congrats to @StueveShots for the win. The flower girl photo is lovely and you seem to have captured a sense of barely contained mischief, as if she had delivered more than flower petals when she walked down the aisle. Also congrats to @sarasphotos for second place and to @JAG and @grandmaR for the HMs. Thanks so much for selecting my dandelion photo for third place. It was definitely a surprise among this great group of photos.
@bfluegie the flower girl is well-known to me, and you have describe her perfectly! Thank you, @pegelli ! I am so honored to have been chosen. Congratulations to all the great entries, especially to @sarasphotos , @JAG and @grandmaR
I am so sorry I've been slow in responding. I was away for the weekend and did not see this until this morning. I know I am budging up against my deadline, but if you all will indulge me for just a few more hours, I'll get the new challenge posted. I don't know that I can match this clever one...but I'll try!
Congrats to @StueveShots for the win and to Joyce & Barbara for the runners up! Great theme, nice commenting & great selection of winners - great mini @pegelli!
