Have a look at the entries and rank your three favorites!

Well it's now time to have a look at the work that was a product of shooting the Challenge on August 5th. This year we limited the number of submissions to 1 per person and we have received 31 entries! There is some terrific work here, enjoy!

How do you see the images?

There are two options:

Flash Version: http://www.demasmarketinggroup.com/DChallengeSummer2012/flash/
I exported a randomized version from Lightroom in Flash format. This version provides the nicest display in my opinion. Not friendly for Mobile Devices, including iPads.

HTML Version: http://www.demasmarketinggroup.com/DChallengeSummer2012/html/
This version was created for those who would like to have a look on mobile devices (including the iPad). You can use this version with any computer as well.


How do you vote?

You can vote in this thread! Simply review the images, jot down the names of your 3 favorites, and post your choices here in this thread. Number them 1 to 3 with 1 being your favorite.

Example:

1- Girl in Boat
2- Skyline
3- Easy Does It

It's that simple!

The only rule…no voting for your own image. This will make it a little more fun and make everyone really have a look at the work of other participants.


Thanks to everyone who submitted their images, it's a really nice group!

What's at stake? Prizes!
The 3 winners will get to choose from the following prizes (Winner Chooses first, Runner-up 2nd and the 3rd place finisher gets the remaining prize):

10" Think Tank Bag
User Grade Nikon F3
100' roll of B&W Film


Now go forth and vote! :)

Thanks, Kent for putting this together! There are some really nice images here. I like the 'light table' view of the html version, as it helps with selection.
So far I have narrowed it down to 6.

Well, first off, my son (almost 4 years old) is pretty definitive that he likes "The Little Observer" the best.
He calls it: "The one with the feet!"!
His #2: The Pigeon is Watching
3: Alone

Not sure if you want to count them, but I asked him twice and he gave me the same answers both times.... :)

For me...
1) Shower Scene
2) The Pigeon is Watching
3) Contemplation.

Sorry I didn't have time to participate this year- there's some good stuff as always though!

I'm hoping to have the film I exposed for this years Decisive Challenge developed in time for next years Decisive Challenge. :D

As a result, my compromising photos of Kent with Cindy Sherman will have to wait. Kudos to all who submitted entries and to Kent for organizing the event in spite of the sabotage efforts from Mike.
