You people outdid yourselves. I have a huge gallery to display, and there were many others that I probably should have included, too. I had masterpiece fatigue.

No "winner," though. The following are all equal winners, just in reverse score order.

but boy are her arms tired

how different are we than birds? this photo asks

this angle exaggerates the importance of the slightest gesture. emotionally dizzying.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231477.jpg by 1.gif Bear_Music

imaginative and beautiful. I wish science fiction looked more like this

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231302.jpg by 21.gif insteps

photographer as fishmonger, chopping off the feet. a subtle masterpiece.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230729.jpg by 21_F.gif snaffles

this composition is exquisite and such beautiful textures.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231423.jpg by 21.gif NiallOTuama

oh yes the beauty of barely there.

I'm pretty sure those diagonals in the foreground are framing a roof. They are a strong unexpected visual element that pulls the whole image together. I feel like I'm on a boat in the fog. I feel like the world is a boat.

I love the light and color on this

and the subject

and the setting

and everything else

Let's watch the world disappear

while my little dog hides under the bench

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230778.jpg by 21.gif wbanning

I'm tired of stairway photos but having her look up at just that moment, with the light on her face, that elevates the photo

so it's more like an elevator photo

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230939.jpg by 21_F.gif PennyStreet

great balls of fire. This is rock and roll in faeryland

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231102.jpg by 21.gif NikonJeb

yes, this gets at the point of living, the point of waiting, the inhale

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231471.jpg by 21_F.gif Hipychik

an exultant minimalism.

the three pillars are trying to start a new religion.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231119.jpg by 21.gif ecroce

there are several visual tricks going on here. The foreshortened feathers echo the bokeh. The bird looks like it's chained by the leg. The bokeh obliterates the sense of depth and looks more like a curtain directly behind the bird,, which in turn makes the bird's perch look like a stage or a pedestal. I'm reminded of King Kong performing on Broadway. It's an absurd photo, but also absurdly entertaining.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231483.jpg by 21.gif VisualDecay

This is a photo of echoes, the cat, the leaf, the wall, all echoing each other.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230749.jpg by 21_N.gif jagar

a shot like this, which is naturally appealing because of high contrast with lots of black and good texture, needs a couple of extra elements to make it really special. In this case, the winner is the man's pose, specifically the way he is looking down and how this echoes the downsloping chairbacks on the right. the symbolic well on the ground doesn't hurt, either.

was my favourite of the challenge. Fantastic ordering of shapes.

Overall it was a great challenge to view. Many, many very good photographs.

my top scores:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231302.jpg by 21.gif insteps : a study in red and grey of truncated legs

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231240.jpg by 21_F.gif mariuca : the b/w treatment does wonders here by making very different objects quite similar, requiring the observer to use extended seeing powers. I like how the exterminator jumps at me out of multiple layers of meanings

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230852.jpg by 21_N.gif MeMex2 : everyone is moving ahead (albeit in different directions) to rescue their souls (this speaks the 21.gif odriew language)

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1230749.jpg by 21_N.gif jagar : it is indeed great and in a way it reminds me of the hong kong skyscrapers like so
