Below are my finalist picks for the "Who has seen the wind" no particular order.
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 Baldy ... 

From Saliv8

From sprint16v

From fother ...

From hopeless .. .

From anil (arthedains)

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.)
