I apologize for being late on this, as I just returned from a business trip. I hate when work gets in the way of my priorities!

Every time I enter one of these contests, I dread the thought of winning because then I will have to judge someone else's work....and on this board, that is a tall order. But I have spent the last few hours going through all of the great entries, and have arrived at my choices.

Honorable Mentions, in order of their submission:

Gillk : Strength in age. I love the snow on the eyebrows and the intensity in this mans eyes. I don't care how old he is, I am not messing with him.
Image

emmelafoto: Youth in age. Just a real sweet shot. "We are in love, and we wear whatever we want!!!"
Image

peterschmidt: Friendship in age. Boys will be boys, no matter how old they are. Talking trash and watching for chicks.
Image

Third Place: metalfanatic
This image scares me, in that several years ago, an elderly Alzheimer's victim was found dead in a corn field not far from where I live. He had wandered out of his daughters house and became lost. This image haunts me because is shows how terribly alone and fragile seniors can be. The B&W conversion and composition add to the sense of fear.
Image

Second Place: Peter Schultz
At the other end of the spectrum is Peter's shot. It exudes life, spirit, confidence, and a youthful spirit. Her facial expression says it all, and the use of DOF and a little vignetting bring her all the more closer to us. I would love to meet this woman. She seems like a real pistol.
Image

First Place: jcdefreitas
I really had a hard time picking between any one of the three images John submitted, but finally landed on this one. Johns overall photographic style is so appealing, and each one of his images captures the personality of his subject. But this one really stood out in it's composition, DOF, absolute crispness of focus, and post processing treatment. You can really feel the sense of history in the lines of this mans face, and his strength in the set of his jaw and intensity of his gaze. Truly remarkable work. I would recommend a visit to Johns galleries, especially his "People" section for a real lesson in stylized portraiture.

So, Thank You all for your submissions, and for allowing me the honor of judging them. And congratulations to John, onto whose shoulders falls the hard task of selecting topics and judging wonderful work.

Regards,
Charlie
