My Votes ...

3 points: Hans "Fence" Simply Brilliant
2 Points: AirBete " At the speed of light" Fantastic colors and simplicity
1 Point: nfoto " Flying High " Beautyful, simple, moody.

TO be very honnest, I would have given 3 points to those three images and more from the challenge.


This was extremely crual to vote BTW.

I would like to applaude the CANADIAN SUBMISSIONS as they are in a large numbers for such a small community. You guys are very good.

This is a horrible situation. I had 6 favorites; picking three of them was hard enough but ranking them was a headache.

I already thought of drawing the winners from a hat. Then I decided to judge the candidates at different day times and in different personal moods, resulting in various rankings.
This is the cross result:

1) nfoto: flying high
2) hans: fence
3) stusimmo: 2up2down

3 Points: daodang, "Colors on a Ceiling"
Wonderful colors, sharpness, and "eye"
2 Points: bendheim, "Season 3/4"
I love the found colors and textures
1 Point: nfoto, "Flying High"
Reminds me of a 70s or 80s album cover

Honorable Mention (in no order):
Flew, "Moons of Abydos"
Best sci-fi
hans, "Fence"
Best b&w
greyflash, "Female Psyche"
Best portrayal of abstract art in another medium

All the submissions were great photos, but these are the ones that I felt best fit the topic as well as being aesthetically pleasing.

Hm. Some interesting contributions, but taken all at once, the quality is uneven and the abstract aspect is missing from many images. I've cast my votes with the assumption that this challenge is mostly for fun and should not be considered too serious a competition :)

Here are my votes:

3 p: boobie joe (very moody, nordic atmosphere)
2 p:Joe Lorenzini (dark, with possible surprises)
1 p: Steve S (point awarded for Canonesque rendition)
