Well the votes have been counted and it was a terrific competition! 39 different images received votes with 28 different images getting first place votes. We had runaway winner this year in terms of points but the competition for the rest of the prize positions was very tight. For ties we used the number of first place votes as a tie breaker. 3 points were given for first, 2 for second and 1 for a third place vote.

And so, with no further ado, I will announce the winners of the Winter 2012 Decisive Challenge. Winners will be contacted in order of finish to select the remaining prize of their choice. Thanks again to the incredibly generous RFF members who donated this terrific set of prizes!!

The winners of the 2012 Winter Decisive Challenge are:

1st Place: Man Centered Square Triangles by Clint Troy.

Congrats to the winners! I was very happy to get a couple of votes on my image. It was my first serious attempt at street photography and it has inspired me to go out and do some more!
