OK, finally got myself to internet access in the city and can now officially post the winners.

You guys (and gals) did an awesome job with the challenge. It was a tough choice to even narrow things down. However, decisions had to be made. Even if you are not on the list, a big kudos goes out to you for your image(s), they were all great.

And now down to business.....

Honorable Mentions
#6-15 in no particular order (sorry, couldn't narrow it down further)

And the winner of this challenge goes to................












Uneven Flow by AaronNelson

To me, this images is exactly what the challenge was all about. Not only can I fell the undulation of the sand, I can feel my feet slowly sinking through the soft (yet slightly gritty) texture of the sand as I walk through the scene. It also gave another sensation that I was not expecting when I came up with the challenge.....that of heat.

For all those reasons as well as the beautiful composition, lighting and lines, this image is the winner of Mini Challenge #10.

    A big congratulations to Aaron! Great photo...Dave's comment about the perception of heat is smack on for me too!

    This was a really fun round - Thanks Dave! As always, it was great to see everyone's 'take' on the theme.

    Can't wait to see what theme you'll come up with Aaron...

    Congrats to the top!

    Have to say, didn't see that one coming lol3.gif

    Is there a smiley with it's brain bubbling? I've got about five ideas that I have no clue on how to pull any of them off...

    i havent gone and looked at the entries in #11 yet, i was hoping to wait til day of judging and do it kinda like Emiliy does DSS...

    or am i wrong and should be in the discussions everyone has with the enteries...ne_nau.gif

    haha, i guess it would be kinda weird to have the judging person say hey great picture to the ones that strike them...
    im guessing it would be a good break for you all for me not to be in that thread...hahaha

    see ya 9/26wave.gif
