Challenge #34 - January 2010 - Winners
« on: February 07, 2010, 09:06:12 PM »
It gives me great pleasure to announce the winners of the January 2010 monthly challenge 'Beginning'.
For the third month in a row, its been tied by two outstanding images. david-stallard and Dominicall

All the finalists images have been in the lead in the voting at one stage or another during the week. Only a couple of points separated all the images at the final count up, with the last couple of members votes making all the difference.
Many members commented on how hard it was to choose between them, which only goes to show that the quality of images are to a high standard, both in the challenge itself and the eventual finalists.

Without further ado, Here are the winning images:

david-stallard
Dominicall

Thank you to all the members who voted, and my Congratulations to you both for outstanding images.

Well done you two... deserved winners and I can well understand the dilema Rob [aka Minolta Mad] had in selecting finalists from the great number of fantastic shots put forward for the challenge.

For my shame I think I dithered too long and missed the vote dead line :-[ Sorry guys :-[
