Panorama Photo Contest - Winners!

We have a winner!

Thank you for your patience during the somewhat long judging period. Despite some technical problems and a large number of excellent images to view, our judges have spoken. The winner of the "Panoramic View" image contest is.... (drumroll)....

"Staithes Twilght" by digitalCG

Congratulations, digitalCG! A stunning image, and truly a "panoramic view." The prize package is on its way to the UK to help make even more panoramas!

Oh, but that's not all! Our "runners-up," who will each get a Pentax e-book of their choice from Yvon Bourque of the PENTAX DSLRs blog, are:

1st runner-up: "Around the world" by Kresica

2nd runner-up: "Vancouver BC at night" by cb750r

3rd runner-up: "After the Storm" by cwhans

4th runner-up: "The Golden Gate" by Damn Brit

This was a difficult task for our judges, since there are so many excellent and beautiful images in the gallery. If you entered the contest, consider the esteemed company you keep, and everyone should take a long look at the images in the contest gallery here! Four pages of really creative and inspiring Pentax-imagery. Great work!

Thanks again, and congratulations!

Just by luck I happened to glance at this thread and really surprised to see that I was 3rd runner up. Congrats to all those that submitted pictures. There were a lot of great pictures to select from. I wouldn't want to be a judge.

Thanks

Wow! Congratulations everyone!

Well-deserved wins, all! I don't know why I don't always see all the contests out there--I never even noticed this one and Panos are one of my favorite things to do. . . lol! Cindy

Wow! I'm truly honoured and flattered that people like my little panorama - some magical images in the competition gallery and judging it must have been a mammoth task, congratulations to all winners and big thanks to PF and panoguy.

I'll be sure to share more panos when I've got to grips with the prize!

Thanks again,
Peter

Please shoot panoguy a PM regarding that. As far as I'm aware, he will be contacting all of you guys today about the ebook

And it is the links that are the problem.
I went to the list and started going through all of the panoramas and I did get to see the one by Damn Brit (4th runner up) even though his link doesn't go there. Makes it hard to see just the winners.
