    I agree with #1, they all were great, but when i talked to my girlfriend about the contest, the lunar eclipse was the one i couldn't stop talking about.

    I've been a total lurker for this mini challenge since I have never taken long exposure photos. (Note to self. Time to try it!)

    The entries were just totally amazing. What a difficult judging job for you, Grimace. You definitely rose to the occasion.

    Congrats to the winners and to all of you photographers who posted such amazing and beautiful work. bowdown.gifbowbowdown.gif

    PS - Yes, it would be helpful to have names to go with the photos.

    Wow, thanks Grimace with all the awesome photos here I would have been happy to even make the top 5!

    Jeff's photo was my favorite I will admit...

    Ive been wracking my brain trying to decide on the next theme. I have a bunch of ideas, and I'll have the next theme up later today. Thanks again for the honor!

    Thanks for the 5th place :ivar

    I forgot to post any details about the shot, but just wanted to say that all the coloring was done in-camera not in post - by holding 2 gels in front of the lens (red and blue). I beleive it is 2sec exposure.
