Decisive Challenge 2012 Summer Edition Voting is Open! Please Cast Your Vote.

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/D...mer2012/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/D...mmer2012/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.
