Hi everyone...

hmmmm... looks like the comp was closed earlier than I thought it wld be, so here are the results !

wow, what an amazing collection of images. a massive thanks to everyone who entered. I really enjoyed picking the winner, and by golly it was hard to differentiate between them. Such a high standard in this comp.


To the honourable mentions:
(and a lot of you will be sitting there wondering why there's no mention... I can only apologise that I had to make a tough choice)



atucker
3 cracking entries.. all different, and all with the "wish I was there" factor oozing out.
my fave was this:

- recommend viewing this in original for full effect.


mcgarva
- 3 great entries...
my personal fave was this one showing the dramatic raw power of the sea.


bartoszkotulski
I really love this one.. it has everything... a foreground, middle ground and background combined with texture, colours and movement.




Onto the winners: (and rest assured these changed a few times)


3rd place:
amoxtli - For me, this is a real anomoly as I am really not into city photos as I think they are fairly easily reclipable, but I was captivated by this incredible reflection, a deep blue sky, and pin-sharp definition. Everything comes together to make this a stunning capture.



2nd place
Divers
Pete - I loved the feeling of depth and mystery in this photo, and it works really well in black and white. I admire your interpretation of the theme, and the risk paid off
In an animal behaviours competition, your seals pic would be way up there, and I have voted for it in my support.
I really wanted to squeeze it into the top 3, but the primary focus was of the pic was the seals not the seascape, so I chose the cave



Winner
mdejong
- 3 stunning pics, but I kept coming back to Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur Coast
Everything has to come together in taking this shot
- brilliant timing (both seasonally and for the shot)
- interesting subject, and a really fascinating seascape... well done !



Over to mdejong for the next comp.

Thanks Nick for Third Place and for you kind words. I've only been able to get this photo once like that. There's quite a bit of luck involved in the weather department. I like your choice of contest, and your picks as well.
Best Regards,
Walter

Thanks, Nick, for the second place -- definitely an honour given the competition. And, while the sea lions is the picture going poster-sized over my bed, I agree with how you judged it: thanks for taking the time to explain. Judging can seem very arbitrary, and not everyone takes the time to give the kind of explanations you have given here. Thanks again, and thanks for good contest!
