Really so sorry for the delay, got tied up with something.
Foremost...thanks, thanks so much to all who participated. I enjoyed all your awesome entries and NE's. And now we come to the toughest part.... I wish I could make everyone 1st Place.
AND THE WINNERS ARE......................drumrollssss..............
Tied 3rd Place: Amy Anson & Theresa Frede...
I love the simplicity of this shot. ... the pov and the dof, the soft tones really brings me back to the shakespearean era.. well done
It's a fantastic abstract...getting close to the fruit is real creativity...love the colors.
Tied 2nd Place: Ren Reich & Jenny Short....
I love the composition of the shot... thie wise use of black & white made the white whiskers pop out of the dark background...great capture..
Fantastic macro shot... i love the focus on the stamen making it like popping out of the frame. The closeness of the shot makes me feel like my face is really buried inside the flower... awesome..
And the Grand Winner!!!.... Sandeep Rajan- Electron Valley
I really love the creativity in this one. I love how you took it on a perpendicular pov...giving the viewer an illusion of a city map. Love the colors, the combo of different elements...shapes and lines.. each one complimenting the other and not giving a cluttered look...Fantastic!
CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE !!!!
IT'S ALL YOURS NOW SANDY :D
