Well, that's it: Contest closed.

Now I have some serious pondering to do .

I'll let you know my verdict, which will be - by definition - subjective.

the results...

Again we had a great contest. 26 entries, making my job not at all easy.

I tend to look at images in a very intuitive way: does it 'work' for me or less so.
I don't get into analysing things like composition, exposure etc. Of course, chances are that when these things are not done right, the result will not work or not so well.

This is a very subjective method and other people might very well come up with a totally different result. That's one of the reasons I'm very bad at commenting other peoples work. At best, I'll come up with a remark like: "I like it" or "It works for me" .

I prefer to keep working like this. I feel analysing takes something out of the experience. Like a child looking at a rainbow versus a grown-up understanding the optics from the phenomenon. Some "magic" is lost.
Same with music. Why do I like Vivaldi? Because I do .

All of this because I want to stress that my selection is entirely subjective. So, don't feel bad if you didn't "make it".
I even had some winners disagree with me in the past .

What I take into consideration as well, is how the images fit with the theme.
When you set a theme, you do so with certain expectations. It is very interesting to see what other people come up with.


So, for the results:

I seem not to be able to avoid another joint place .
Joint third place for RyanW and ghl

My congratulations to all that participated and special congratulations to chubasco, Mike Cash, ghl & RyanW.
Since 'Reputation' gets more important on the forum these days, I thought it would be a good idea to add to the 4 finalists.


Well chubasco, it's up to you now to set up and judge the Point & Shoot Contest # 39. I'm curious to see what you'll come up with.

Congratulations, Chubasco, that is an excellent photo. I like that in addition to the boat battling time, so is the barrel propping it up and the house in the distance. Lots of good entries.

Thank you, Manel, I'm honored.

If I'd read properly, and seen that the contest ended at MID DAY instead of the usual MIDNIGHT deadline that these things have, I would have gotten an entry in earlier.

As it was, I never got to go outside and shoot because I was working long hours.

This is what I should have submitted, but unbeknownst to me, even as I was taking it, the deadline had passed.



Polaroid Automatic Land Camera 250, Fuji FP100C, ISO 100, F/8, no idea what shutter speed the camera selected on its own.

I think I'm done with these contests. All they get me is frustrated.

Nice job to the winners. At least it's not as if I would have won if I'd entered...those are some world-class photos.

I did notice your absence, Erik but I figured something else kept you busy.
Sorry about the midday. During the week, I don't have a lot of free time on my hands so this gave me the Sunday afternoon to make my selection.

Don't give up on us yet!
