@Cavalier - Great shot of the blacksmith working on the anvil. Kind of covers everything with the artwork, tools and artist at work. Nice!

@JAG – I liked all of these for this challenge. The study of the trumpet and the colors and tools of a painter. Very cool.

@Pegelli - #2 and #3 really caught my attention with the expression of the musicians and the art/artist at work.

@BMW Kurt – The concentration of the musician in #1 and the isolation of detail with the hands in #2 were both good in my opinion.

@Mathogre – Funny how #1 and #2 first reminded me of our current situation of isolation in many parts of the world today. Nice job and #3 made me smile.

@Sarasphotos – All great images. The carving on the horns is fantastic. What a great experience to see the impromptu concert. Loved the washer women as well even though you’ve marked them not for consideration.

@GrandmaR – Love to watch marching bands! Glass blowing has always been very fascinating to me and this is a good shot.

@DanC137 – The shallow DOF really draws attention to this detail of the instrument. Very nice.

@Ikbart – Nice detail on the instruments in #1 and #3. I have to say, I’ve never seen dancers painting! Must be fascinating and would have loved to see the final results of their work.

@DavidRGillespie – Interesting art installation in #1, would love to see this. Love #3, gorgeous artwork from the budding artist!

They are all, of course, fantastic. It is a challenge however, so I must pick. Here are my top 3 images:

  1. Cavalier – Final Steps

  2. Pegelli – Singing Along

1 (WINNER). BMW Kurt – Guitar Hands

Thank you everyone for participating!

    Congrats to @BMW Kurt for the win and to @pegelli and @Cavalier for 2nd and 3rd.

    I have one request to @BMW Kurt which I hope is not out of line ( @JAG ???) and that is that the minis go back to being 2-3 weeks long and not a month. I feel like a month really kills the interest level. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

    Yes, Sara. I do agree. A month is too long for a mini.

    I agree Sara. I hope to have the new mini up later today or tomorrow and would like to have it end on the 24th. I am on the road from the 13th to the 22nd and where I am going I won't have a lot Internet access (blessing and a curse). @JAG thoughts??

    Happy to see this discussion about going back to the shorter time frame (of 2-3 weeks) ! I think it is good to keep things a little flexible to make it easier for the person running the challenge, but I much prefer the shorter time frame. Thanks all.

    I have noted the change of the challenges getting longer and longer. Originally, 2 weeks was about what most would run them. The lack of a guidline in the Mini un-official rules in this matter is because everyone has things to do and places to go. So instead of actually mandating it in the un-official rules, I will say here, if you can do it in 2 weeks, go for it. If 3 works better because you cannot get to it, then that is fine too. If you can only be availible 1 week, that is fine too! But for future, I will suggest that if you cannot keep it 3 or less, then maybe pass it on to the runner up. I hope this answers your question @BMW Kurt

    A great mini with many great entries. @dlscott56, you didn't make it easy for yourself. Thanks for the detailed comments and thanks for giving me 2nd (or 4th ;) ) place. Congrats to @BMW Kurt for winning with a fine photo indeed and @Cavalier for the other honourable placement.
