First of all, thanks to everyone who took part in the image creation and voting process, it's that participation that makes this so fun! I hope we can make the December Challenge an even greater event with the same quality and variety of images we enjoyed this time around.

The Results
The votes have been cast and counted and all that is left is to announce the results. 24 images received votes but there can only be three winners…So here we go.

The winners of the 2012 Decisive Challenge Summer Edition are:

1st Place Winner: Constructivism by Alkis Plithas (Telenous on RFF)

3rd Place Winner: A Dark Place by Lea (Lea on RFF)

I will be contacting the winner so he can have his choice of the prizes, then the second place winner so she may choose from the remaining two prizes.

The Prizes are:

- Sling-O-Matic 10 Think Tank Bag
- User grade Nikon F3 Body
- 100' roll of either Arista EDU 100 or 400 film

Two of these items were donated by RFF members and I will check with them to make sure they're fine with being identified. Their generosity is greatly appreciated! The film is my contribution.

Nice work everyone and thanks for playing along!

A little while ago I read Kent's email, I am really chuffed. Above all, being part of a grassroots/community event like this was such great fun. Many thanks to Kent for organizing, very much appreciated. Congratulations to all who took part. Looking forward to the next Challenge!

Congratulations to the winners! (Alkis, Gail, and Lea)

As I mentioned the last time that she placed (Decisive Challange 2010), Gail is my wife. Contests inspire her to go out to make pictures. I am very proud of her.

I'm also proud of Lea, who is part of our photo blog group (Friendly Photo Forum (http://www.fpcf.blogspot.com)), along with Dan, Ted (Ampguy), Joe (BackAlley), and few others.

Ray, as you know, Gail really gave me the 'business' the last time she placed 3rd, and now that she moved up a notch, I'm going to be razzed unmercifully yet again. :rolleyes:

I'm sure Gail and Lea will gang up on me now. :eek::)

Kent, Gail chooses the camera bag for her prize. And thanks again for organizing and promoting the Decisive Challenge. It is a lot of fun, and I can't wait until the next one.

Thank you, Warren. Please pass my congratulations to Gail and Lea.

The photo was taken in Sifnos island, Greece. The place is imbued with Cartier-Bresson's photographic presence, it was fortunate to find myself there on the day.

Now that the Decisive Challenge is in the books I'd like to thank Joe (Back Alley) and Richard (Rich815) for donating the Think Tank Bag and Nikon F3 as prizes for the Challenge. Their generosity really added some fun to the whole process and I appreciate their gesture both as the event organizer and as a participant.

Tip a beer to two generous RFF members!
