    3 Points: Hans, "Fence"
    2 Points: nfoto, "Flying High"
    1 Point: Joe Lorenzini "Angel's Fan"

    This was hard! There are a lot of good photographs here, but in making my selections, I looked at how the artist used his or her tools and insights to help me go beyond the photograph itself.
  3. By far the most successful and hardest to judge challenge yet. There are a LOT of outstanding photographs.

    3 points to: Hans (very Blair Witch Project)
    2 points to: AirBete for "At the speed of light"
    1 point to: Panos for "Last Light"

    Honorable mention goes to Jonathan's red "X". Very abstract (grin).

    Thanks to Yves for the topic and to all the participants for their creative entries.

    3 Points: Hans, "Fence"
    2 Points: Bendheim "Season 3/4"
    1 Point: Daodang: "Color on a Cieling"

    I have tried to take the ones that evokes the most emotions in me. Hans Fence is very somber, reminds me of dark winters in Sweden. Bendheims Season 3/4 gives a feeling of the Struggle in Suth Africa for me probably becasue of all of Peter's excellent descriptions an photo's from his home country's struggle. Daodang's Color on a Cieling is sort of a reminder for me when I first went to a big city with skyscrapers and the childish wonder I had for the reflections and colors and the echoing traffic that never dies down.

    Nice work by all!

  13. Challenge 5

    Some excellent entries; some are more abstract in the true sense of the word than others; ALL are very good, and to choose ia not at all easy.

    3 Points to Hans for his B&W abstract FENCE, which is somthing I'd be proud to hang in my house...

    2 points for nfoto for FLYING HIGH, which is truly an abstract work, nice coloring.

    1 point for AirBete's SPEED OF LIGHT which I really like a lot.

    Nice challenge.

    What a huge submission list and all very good. My votes are -

    3 pts - Colours - Vinod Menon
    2 pts - Colours on Ceiling - Daodang
    1 pt - Season 3/4 - Bendheim

  16. First a great thank to Yves P. for this challenging contest both for the topic and for the voting.

    3 points for nfoto "Flying High"
    2 points for Bendheim "Season 3/4"
    1 point for Beaucamera "Light and shadow"

    Flying High's pastel colors and simple shapes make me feel lightness and joy of living in summer. With the hot colors, the contrast and the texture, Peter's Season 3/4 reminds me that nothing can withstand heat and time degradation. Beaucamera's picture brings me back to my chidhood excitement when the first time, I saw the colors and lights in a kaleidoscope.

    Congratulations for all the participants. You girls and guys are so creative.
