Thanks everyone for your submissions to the competition. The quality of the entries makes coming to a decision difficult, but here are my choices:

Four honorable mentions.

Who can resist this wonderful photo by erichmangl?


The soft light, the combination (to me) of the commonplace and the exotic make this shot by gillk a winner.


Fall is in the air, but the brave flower resists. By atucker.


Simply a classic by azicit.




Third place: A lovely moment by nsaratan. You wish you were there.


Second Place. The static archway frame, dynamic motion of the train and woman, a brief moment in time and a great caption too! By slkorolev.


First Place to gpmerfeld. Along with all of the emotion conveyed by this expertly captured scene, one is left wondering if that is the perfect frame for the dog, or the perfect dog for the frame!


Congratulations and thanks again to all!
On to you, Mr Merfeld.

Excellent topic Nelson! I don't know how you managed to narrow the field to your winners, with so many fantastic entries. Great choices! Congrats to the winners and honorable mentions, and especially to the wonderful first place capture.

Thank you so much, Mangoman! It is really an honor, for there were so many wonderful submissions for your outstanding theme... In the end, it comes down to tough decisions and personal choice, and we all appreciate the time you took to do so...

Congratulations to everyone for such fine entries...

I will now humbly take on the responsibility for the next contest. I will post the new topic right away.

Thanks again, or as we say over here, 'Mahalo nui loa!"

Aloha,
GP

Thanks guys. In fact it was really tough. The decision making evolved over two days. I made bookmarks of about 2 dozen candidates that initially caught my eye. This allowed me to easily switch between them for comparison or another look. Gradually (and painfully) I would eliminate one. Finally a decision had to be reached.

Once again thanks to all for the great submissions, and the photographic inspiration I receive daily here on pbase.
