>>>> Challenge 117: Results <<<<

Thank you to everyone who participated in any and all ways in Challenge 117, "red Red RED," by entering, commenting voting and/or helping out. It started out slowly but in the end was a very successful endeavor, with numerous excellent entries in both categories. Special thanks go to Mike Fitzgerald, as usual, for his assistance in getting things oriented, the time charts and vote counting.

Now to the results you've all been anxiously waiting for. First place goes to Martin Polanic, aka NNMS (which cleverly stands for “aNoNyMouS”), for his stunning and thought-provoking "Once Regal." The image bears witness not only to your talent as a photographer but also to your mastery of the excellent R1, as well as to a good eye to have seen this kind of beauty in such a humble scene. Congratulations, Martin!

First in Exhibition was taken by Ianz28 with his simple but elegant "Autumn Minimalism," an outstanding illustration of the subtlety and eloquence of Japan and testimony to his talent as a superb photographer. Congrats and omedetou to you, too, Ian!

So your two red hosts, Frank and Helen, gratefully pass the baton to Martin and eagerly await your selection of a new topic for Challenge 118 (so we can participate, too ;-)).
