Thanks to all the participants.

Honorable mentions:

Strong in-focus textures flowing, curving and descending to the out of focus background from Ken Zaret


Its hard not to like the selective focus and monochrome treatment of this one from Marcel de Jong


Third place to Walter Koenig. I suggest taking time to let your eyes wander through this classic leading lines style image, from the foreground textures to the twelve different ships in the background.


Second place also goes to Walter. The strong foreground textures on the rails, shadows across the decking and overall monochrome treatment were excellent for this well positioned viewpoint.
And although the rails lead to nowhere, in this case nowhere is good.


First place belongs to Marcel de Jong. I liked how the foreground focused fence leads the observer away from and then back to the subject. Due to the subtle shadows of the picket on the fence rail, the light must have been filtered through clouds and I think this works for this image as the vegetation is subdued, directing attention to the fence itself.

Thank you very much for Second and Third Place. First time for me. Good choice of topic.
Marcel has informed me that he won't be able to post the next Challenge. I asked him to contact Emily so that I will be able to post. Will do so as soon as I hear from her.
Regards,
Walter

Congrats to the winners and HMs - great topic :) I do hope we're not going to go through another hick up with the winner unable to host the next one :(

Was a great subject and some great entries. Hoping also that the new contest will be up...but so far no response from winner... I feel if someone fails on more than one or 2 occasions to be able to host a contest then they should not be entering. Emergencies occur that can prevent partiticipation, but most people are so married to their digital devices, that it is not that time consuming to post a new contest and they really should be able to fulfill their obligation. It is only respectful of the other participants.

Hi Everyone,
Marcel let me know that he wrote to Emily on the 21st that he would not be able to host and to have me host instead as I received 2nd and 3rd Place. So far I have not heard from her, so I have written to her today via direct mail to follow up. I will post as soon as she sets it up for me. If the competition is posted outside the the guidelines it derails completely, which happened last year.
Regards,
Walter

Hi All,

I did not see an email from Marcel, but I will check and see if it ended up in a spam box. Walter is all set up to be the host of the next competition now.

Cheers,
Emily
