Winners: Weekly Challenge #73 - Color on Color
Posted By: atupdate, 10-11-2008, 05:07 AM

In the past challenges I've judged, I could separate the contenders into a smaller group to choose from based on three criteria, met the challenge, good post processing, and had a strong interesting feature. This time I could not do that, as almost every image meets all three. This leaves me only one purely subjective criterion to use for picking the winner, personal taste. With that in, here are my favorites.

Honorable Mentions: I could easily list everyone but Kevindt, Yatz, Bramela, and Eaglerapids could easily have one if I was judging this challenge on a different day.

3rd Place: Gosshin - I found it interesting how the color on color was really a secondary part of this image until I found it. Then it helped hold my attention and invite me to explore the image in detail.

2nd Place: Cindy S -This image has eye appeal that can draw a viewer from across the room to take a closer look.

And the winner is reeftool - Stunning image, I hope you have this printed for your wall.

Well done everyone and congratulations to reeftool.

Thank you all. Actually, i'm kind of stunned as that photo was a snapshot I took while sitting in my kayak trying to get some shots of a blue heron who had stepped behind some grass and I was waiting for him to move back into the clear. There were a few of these little yellow birds flying around, very fast and not staying in one place and I fired off a burst and got lucky. They blended in so well, I wasn't sure I had them in my viewfinder.
