WINNERS! 55th Show and Tell Contest: Cultures Of The World

Post Thu Aug 09, 2007 10:40 pm


I want to thank and congratulate all who posted their fine images in this contest category. Every single image had a unique quality in portraying the theme of Cultures of the World.

The decision was extremely difficult, and basically comes down to purely personal taste in selecting a few from so many outstanding shots.

All images are clickable so that you can enjoy the full size image...

So here are the Honorable Mentions:

And now for 3rd Place:

We have a tie. Both shots along a similar general theme, but each so unique and beautifully captured:

2nd Place honor goes to the following extraordinary image:

And The Winner is...
Any one of the three cultural portraits submitted by this person could take the top honor for this theme. Congratulations on such outstanding, sensitive work! I pass the responsibility of the next contest on to you... :~)

Thanks again to all of you for posting such a fine selection of images.

Aloha,
GP

This was an interesting topic. Thanks for selecting mine for honorable and third but I agree that Viscot's monochromes are the winners here! Very powerful yet sympathetic images.

I had little doubt that one of Steve V's images would make the winning cut.

And thanks for the honourable mention among so many great images.

Hello

Interesting subject.
Very good collection of images.
Congratulations to all of the winners.
I also predicted that one of Steve V's pictures would win. As gpmerild said, any one of Steves 3 images would be at the top, so in reality 3 1st prices. Congratulations. They are just outstanding, and I urge everyone to check out his galleries. Such a great colletion of portraits is hard to find. See: http://www.pbase.com/stevev1
Thanks to gpmerfeld for the theme and for hosting. Great work!!
