**** Challenge # 58 -- RESULTS ****
Sep 10, 2008

Thanks to everyone for answering the Challenge. There were times during this run that I feared I had chosen a topic too wide of people's comfort range. But then I'd review the images building up, and relax. Overall, I'm quite pleased with the caliber of work submitted.

With 113 images entered, I've have to make some tough choices. To start with, I eliminated those pictures that took a documentary approach, and showed some kind of decayed subject as the principle element of the photo without a strong consideration for presentation. That took out a quarter or so of the field. Lots of subjective evaluation to go.

Many small choices go into this sorting process, that end up elevating one image over another in the shakedown, when there may be little to point to as the reason. Often though, the reason came down quibbles I had with composition choices. There are a number of pictures I very much want to include in the final selection but can't, of course. In the end, it just comes down to which ones float my boat.

Enough disclaimer. Let's get going

Following this are three posts:

First, a field of ten honorables.

Then seven finalists in no particular order.

Fianally the three top slots.
