Below are my finalist picks for the "Who has seen the wind" challenge....in no particular order. PLEASE SEND ME A PM WITH YOUR TOP THREE PICKS IN ORDER #1, #2 AND #3.....
Voting will close on Tuesday Sept 5 at 10 AM MDT (~ 1700 GMT) and I will try to post the winner before I leave camping. As there is just one image per finalist, please vote by finalist name. Thanks. In making the final selections I looked for the "...wind in action" combined with other traits of a "good" picture. The pictures HAD to show the wind.

From hopeless .. .

I really like mspohn's car show image -- having an interest in old cars -- but not including it in the final list. It is well composed and is a good picture of the car, however, the wind-blown flag in back is really incidental.
I need a safe way out of the image below. I am going to announce that it gets an "honorable mention" because it is a well composed picture-- perhaps the best composed of the lot. BUT IT IS NOT PART OF THE VOTING
as it does not show the wind in action per se
. The blades are stopped in action and it is not clear that they are turning at all. Had they been blurred .. well that would have been a different matter. Nice work gaz. (I see these things almost every day as we have hundreds here where the wind blows most of the time.)
