    As usual I am intensely surprised and humbled by some of the judges choices,
    each and every step in this contest is a great learning tool.

    I think this has been (and is), one of the most enjoyable contests I have ever participated in.

    Thank you to all of the judges and DoctorIt for making it possible.

    Congratulations to all of the entrants and the top 10 finalists~

    One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation...I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards --- and, of course, the whip God gave me."

    I sent a PM to Paul, it looks like the photo was inadvertently removed prematurely.

    Having just spent the last 2 1/2 days travelling I haven't had an opportunity to post a thank you to the judges (including Travis as well for his display of integrity) and to everyone who has been voting.

    Very humbling to be amongst this group of photos.

    Regards,

    Peter

    SF#2 Finalists
    I've been here almost everyday looking for the best shot. After the first couple of shots it was easy to see why the semifinalists were chosen. I have certainly enjoyed viewing everyone's photographic perspective of the world we live in and the people who live here. Great job. Wonderful shots. Kudos to those who participated and especially to those who were selected to continue.
    Remember, no one may want you to take pictures, but they all want to see them.
    Educate yourself like you'll live forever and live like you'll die tomorrow.
