As usual, most of these look more 'made' in "PP" than photographed.

Well done to all the nominees... beautiful work, every one a winner for different reasons. Difficult to pick just one, but I chose one that made great use of lens characteristics (a soft spot of mine)

For many, the processing (whether for film or digital) is as much a part of the photographic artistic process as capturing the image. I understand that's not to everyone's tastes, but it's definitely a valid component of the art...

This is REALLY tough. There are some really nice images here that aren't just beautiful but creative as well.

I made up my mind

Good job everyone.

Photography is an art form. For me pressing the shutter button is just the first stage in creating that art.

Amazing! I nominated most of these. Sadly, mine is not present, but there is always November!

Hmmm...not my assessment, except perhaps the one that is a monochrome conversion.

Oh boy.

This is hard. My image is in there. But at the same time I do not want to just vote for myself. But do I vote for someone else? There are some awesome images there. Or should I not vote?

they are all fine entries with merits in their own right. PP work is part of bringing out the best in an image and subjective to an artist's taste and also subject to a viewer's taste...

Very difficult to choose a winner here. I went with #10 but I could have voted for quite a few of them with no difficulty.
