Challenge #33 - December 09 - Winners!
« on: January 09, 2010, 09:58:39 PM »

Well, I said in announcing the finalists that choosing them was getting harder and harder. Many of you commenting while voting that it is indeed getting very hard to vote, as the standard is so high across the board (thank you for those comments - they're appreciated).

The voting was extremely close - every finalists attracted numerous votes, but in the end it was two images that attracted the most attention - outstanding images even amongst the excellent set we had to chose from.

For the second month in a row, we could not separate the top two images, and as a result we again have a tie! The joint winners of the December 09 Challenge - At the Beach are Shanehicks and marindave - sincere congratulations to you both!!

Here are the winning images:

shanehicks and marindave,

Well done and great pictures.

I so agree with Fother, it is getting harder and harder each moth with all the wonderful pictures to just pick one picture out of all the pictures submitted. We do have some great photographers in our group.

Your friend,
Larry

Thanks everyone, you are very generous with your praise. I am honored to share monthly challenge with Shane. And a big congratulations to all the other short listed photos, they were all great.

That is Nobby's Head beach here in Newcastle Australia, just down the road from where I am staying. It was a hand held shot with just a little color editing in capture 1.
