    Congrats to the winners.

    AND a

    BIG Congrats to all that didn't make it, do not be discouraged, even though the judges didn't think your photo made the cut, there are still those that like it, for beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!!

    On to the Semi's...Whoohoooo....WE GET TO VOTE. I only hope and my
    biggest wish is that voting will be based on Composition, Quality, and Tecs...and not based on favoritism or popularity...cuz that would be a discouragement and a total bummer!! I say this cuz it is human nature to always support your favorite photographer. I have seen in other contests where someone has posted the worst photo but due to "popularity" they rec'd the most votes....I really hope this does not happen here, be honest with your minds eye and not to loyalty!

    With that said...GOOD LUCK TO THE SEMI FINALISTS and may your eyes behold what the Great Spirit lays before you!!
    You're only as good as your next photo....

    Congrats
    Great job everyone, lots of wonderful images. Especially would like to call out Chandi (Astronomical Poetry) and Paul Thomas McKee (Silent Sentinel). I thought they were both tremendous.

    I don't want the cheese, I just want to get out of the trap.

    This competition was tough! These rounds were interesting because you actually get to see your competition. That's not been the case in any of other exhibits in which I've taken part.

    There were some amazing photos in this round and to everyone who took part, I'd like to say....
    Congratulations!! clap.gif



    And thanks for making this an incredible competition. Heheheheh...there's nothing like giving the judges a hard time. naughty.gif

    We all survived!!!!:ivar

    I was just noticing this myself... and not only 90% silhouettes, but if you just look at the thumbnails, 6 out of 10 are predominantly orange or red silhouettes.

    Surprising.


    But anyway, the Finalists gallery has been updated. I must say, it is quite a stunning collection. Congrats to all!

    No so surprising, since statistics say that the human eye is attracted to bright rich primary colorsdeal.gif . Colors enhance a mood and can create a feeling!wings.gif

    Congratulations to all that made the semi this time round. I feel like the ‘Last Photographer Sneaking’ in there.
    Those that didn’t make it this time – no worries – you have the whole year ahead of you. Your turn will come.
    My head is spinning with stupid ideas for the next shot. Just hope one clever one comes along.
