    Congratulations to Daodang and Yves!! Well done to both of you.

    Also want to offer my sincere thanks to Todd and Gordon for doing such a terrific job on running this challenge. Thanks guys.

    I also want to thank the couple of people who voted for my pic - your check is in the mail. ;)  This was the first competition I've ever entered, but I'll be back for more punishment in the future. :D

    And thank you to Todd and Gordon - I had a blast with this subject, and I'm anxiously awaiting the next contest.

  5. Congratulations to Dao and Yves, and a special thanks to Todd and Gordon for running a great contest! Because of your efforts, participation, both in terms of entries and voters, doubled over the prior Cafe Challenge. Well done!

  10. Thank to all the submitters, voters and viewers who contributed to make this challenge a good and fun one.

    I would like also to sincerely thank Todd and Gordon for creating this contest and doing a great job on running it.

    Now let go for the next challenge.
  11. Congrats Yves & Dao!! Look forward to the next challenge :D 

    Hey you've all been a great group to work with and I really appreciate all the entries and votes. I know that some had difficulty narrowing it down to three but I personally think that is better than spreading a few votes over all (or nearly all) the entries. I mean how hard can it be to just make a decision (come on Gale you can do it). Voting is subjective at best and I don't think any of us feel bad when someone doesn't vote for our image. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we all bring different things and experiences to the table. As it relates to this contest, I think we can all learn something about composition by looking at the winners. Congratulation to Dao, Yves, and Bendheim.

    Thanks again for allowing Todd and I to be the administrators.
