RESULTS ***Mini Challenge #573*** Photography As Art

You folks made this really tough to judge. So many great entries and exhibits. I did my best (on a purely subjective and probably unfair basis) to create the following results:

Honorable Mentions were picked only from exhibits. In no particular order:

Jarrell Conely posted several superb images - these are but two of them:

Reto's artistic photography never fails to inspire me. Again, just two of several:

So many of Val's are great, too:

Ed Forms' Amiee may not like her photo, but I do! When she gets a little older, she will treasure it.

David's (Hwvlover) "goof" certainly turned out well:

KBTinto once again makes magnificent use of light - and that's what photography is all about.

PMUK's B&W rendering is subtle and excellent:

Bill's B&W is every bit as superb:

Randy's waterfall takes my breath away.

David's (Albquiuense ) Fahrwud is another superb B&W rendering:

66GTO's car got me thinking about the elegance of days gone by (for those who could afford such things in the Depression):

Dtop's village woman is nothing less than great! What all has that face seen?


THIRD PLACE:  Jerry045 tells us he is "artistically challenged". I'm not so sure.  This could have easily been a first place entry.  Wow!

TIED FOR SECOND PLACE: Again any of these could have easily taken first place. Val's "mistake" is a winner.

I'd be honored to hang Randy's subtle masterpiece on my wall.

FIRST PLACE:  A "goof" from Mina with superlative results.  I could look at this image for days and never see the same thing.

Thanks to all who participated and made the judge's job so very difficult!!
