*** Mini-Challenge 350 - Winners!!! ***

Thank you all for your excellent entries! I had a good old challenge to pick the winners.

The number 350 is also the number that started my journey into digital photography over 6 years ago: I had a Canon 350D. Long since sold but it was an excellent camera that's probably still taking pictures

Without further ado, here are the HMs:

I like the way the flame ghosts as a holy spirit and the type is very fitting:


Karl Mohr
Love the x-mas tree and star burst effect!

I've always wondered what life is like in a tea pot and now I know I like the eerie red glow. I do wonder if there's another familiy enjoying tea in the tiny tea pot the bear is holding..

Dave Throgmartin
Nice warm tones and a world inside a x-mas bulb shows a good atmosphere

You say it's hot where you live, and the image tells the same story with the warm tones! There's not much snow here either


The 'coolest' ball shot of them all, an almost neutral WB All the colors come out, especially the blues en reds. Well done shot at 1/6ss handheld!

A lovely scene build on scale, that must've taken a lot of time and skill to put together!


a sweet shot Lots of nice colors, unorderly ordered, I like it!


The aftermath of a x-mas carnage LOL! The toy dog seems to think 'don't throw me out with the torn paper!'.


That's my cup of tea entirely, excellent way to deal with the cold there Nick!

Third place goes to

That's a very nice tradition! A tree so stuffed with ornaments you don't see the tree anymore Excellent story of passing on tradition to the next generation and including the youngest in the festivities. 3rd place!

Second place goes to

Absolutlely fun stuff! It almost looks like an UWA shot where the dogs head hides the body, seems to hang in the air. The dog seems to pose and smile for you too LOL! I award this shot 2nd place!

First place goes to


A nice wrapped chocolate santa with bokeh disks used as an excellent background. The wrap is shiny but you held the highlights in check. Excellent understanding of photography and showing us your take about the festivities It's over to you ziggi, the next challenge is your to host!
