I have finished reading and absorbing and I want to thank all who participated, voted, commented... with a particular thanks to the jury for their superior effort and eloquent findings. I am so pleased to have my entry selected and to be noted amongst such a field of worthiness. Thanks again.

Please do. I knew I should have gone ahead with a self-DQ, but a SCer talked me out of it

So, where's the gif for everyone else? The rest of us whom the jury clearly considers to be unartistic?

If we do this again, I would suggest a call for volunteers. But in order to volunteer, you have to agree to write at least 500 words on any photo you nominate.

You didn't say it has to be in English.

Wow - this was one extraordinary reading. Thank you so much jurors, for your patience and eloquence. I'll be coming back to this thread.

What 21_N.gif jagar said - why not have a couple of Fine Arts or similar challenges over the year, with you as a jury?

Congratulations to all the HMs, what a gorgeous group! I'm sorry for not being around to comment, but most of your choices were also my 7-10 votes :-). This challenge has once again produced some remarkable pictures.

I have been away from my computer and cannot truly visit here by phone effectively. I am looking forward to tomorrow when I can spend time with the photos discussed here, and revisit those I liked in the challenge. Many thanks to the jury!!

It was a long read (the first post), but it was worth it. Congrats to all HM's and the jury, thanks for all the work!

I know it's real time consuming for you guys but I'd be up for more challenges juried by the same group, it makes for a far more interesting experience and it doesn't take away from the scoring challenge. I'm probably just being greedy but that doesn't bother me.

Wow what a great response. Thank you for noticing our efforts.

A public answer to a private question about our process:

I did comment on photos without nominating them. The photo had to inspire a mini essay at least before I would nominate it. Some photos I loved and said as much, but I just didn't have enough to say about them. Indeed, a couple photos came close to that line.

All nominated photos were included in the results. No juror's choices were vetoed.

I am deeply honored to be included in this list. Many thanks to the jurors for revealing their observations and thoughts on a most engaging group of images. Wow. I am smiling from ear to ear!

Pleased to see my image here, but more pleased to be able to soak in the photos, perspectives, musings and feel like part of the process-part of the community.
Huge Thanks to Don and jury- for the organization and effort; for the overall benefit to DPC.

It is so easy to feel alienated, alone and speed voting-unable to truly focus for more than a short time providing only a quick vote or jotted phrase- but here, this process and this thread, the way it should be.
02/23/2015 11:20:00 AM · #20
Thank you all!

I love the concept mentioned by Don 21.gif posthumous in the jury's summary, and again by Scott 21.gif bohemka, of prolonging the conversation. Many thanks to the jurors for that undertaking. I was thrilled to be included in the list.

I'm thrilled to be included on this list. And big kudos to the jury for an articulate and revealing look *into* a wonderful collection of images.
02/23/2015 11:07:31 AM · #23
What a wonderful experience looking much closer at these artful images and being enlightened to perspectives that hadn't formed in my mind yet. I think your analyses are brilliant, and now... I want to group them all in framed pieces on my wall! What a touch of class this process gives to this site! THANK YOU jurors for your thoughtful effort in doing this! And congratulations to the Honorable Mention recipients! Very well deserved!!

WHat a fantastic group of images. And the comments and observations by the jury are truly exceptional. Thank you so much to all involved. This is truly my favorite challenge of the year and I assume will be annually. I don't participate as much as I did a few years ago, but this challenge really always feels fresh and reminds me how fun DPC can be.

21_F.gif RKT totally nailed it on my image - to the point that I was nearly brought to joyful tears. THis is from my uncle's home, where my family (myself, wife and 3 kids -sometimes my mom and grandma) have explored and enjoyed the wonders of a small wonderland in Florida; Be it picking eggs from beneath hens, holding their chicks, riding a pony, kayaking amongst ducks, staring at goats, chasing lizards, picking produce from the garden, picnicking with family, or making coladas and lounging in the sun - it has always been a great memory each time we visit. To the point that it was my substitute for Disney World until last year when we finally did both! ;)

And 21.gif posthumous, yes, the dog's awkwardness certainly contibuted to this one being my final choice. Thank you for your great observations, as always.

Thank you jurors for suggesting different ways of looking.
