Winners - P52-5-25: Colour Ton-sur-ton/One Colour
Posted By: ramseybuckeye, 06-24-2013, 07:16 PM

Although there were few entries, this is difficult, they are all good. I'm not sure I am qualified to judge this, since I not sure I could properly pronounce Ton-sur-ton.

Maria27: Nice use of the crystals, I'm pretty sure my wife would buy this if the right shade she wanted was in there, you could sell this. I think you hit the theme very well here.

tessfully: Very creative tree photo, this also hits the theme, this would be a great wallpaper (computer background type) <also see below>

Tamia: ditto -
It's unusual that two of my favorite photographers came up with the same idea. Both you and Tess are great nature photographers, but you both have your own styles, I guess this is where style merge.

jmschrei: Joe, another tree idea but a little different that you've included a variety of greens using more trees. I do like the high contrasty greens.

patrick9: I think I would further categorize this as Ton-sur-ton abstract, you just show enough of the roof and water to make it kind of sinister like. It truly has a cold feeling!

noelcmn: I agree with you of the desolate look of this. You have captured that essence very well Noel and it really fits the category.

iabc_lazy: Either through knowing this truck was going to show up and waiting for hours, or a good photoshop job, or being incredibly luck it all came together for you here. I find it almost humorous and it really nails the theme for me.

Thanks to all who entered, an excellent job by all on what I think is a difficult challenge.

Here's my results:
