Congrats to everyone who participated. Picking a favorite for this round was hard. I'm not very good at articulating why I like something... with that in mind, here are the results.

A Few honorable mentions...

TravelnLass... the resemblance between you at that age and my niece is really what caught my eye. Such a classic photo.

reteest42... I am inspired by your bravery in doing a boudoir shoot. Really lovely shots, but this one was my favorite for reasons I can't really explain.

1st Runner Up...

Paul, I don't know how you got that effect, but I love it! Really cool!

Our Winner...
Billseye - Bananas, Absynthe, Tequila and Bill

I've been really drawn to black and white lately and I just love the contrast and the mood of this shot! So Congrats Bill!! Look Forward to seeing what you come up with for mini #159.

    Thanks for the nod, Lisa. This was a fun challenge, especially getting to connect names and faces!

    Kudos to everyone, especially HM's and Runners Up. Lot's of great stuff and an abundance of styles.

    I'll be posting Mini Challenge #159 tonight. Stay tuned!

    Fun shot Bill!

    Loved yours, too. I'm curious how you created it... by software or painstakingly by hand, or some magic combination of the two?

    Still plunked down here in Laos (the festival was fabulous - 60+ elephant! - and I have nearly a thousand images to prove it) But just wanted to pop to see the results of the challenge.

    Congrats to Bill, Paul and reteest42 - all remarkable shots. And OMG yes, Pedalgirl - the resemblance to your niece is amazing (though she looks lots cuter and not so seriously "50's"!) ;)

    Now I'm off to see what mischief Bill's cooked up for our next challenge. And then to the night market here in Luang Prabang - it truly is amazing.
