Well today folks this blog is not about me, no- sir- ree Bob, get it? It's all about you, the people that entered my "Find And Photograph The Daytime Crescent Moon Contest" There was some awesome entries so much so that I could not pick a first and second, so I went out to a higher power.... my wife, and some people I know to choose the winners. Unfortunately everyone that entered the contest came in first at one time or another. The winner though with the most first place picks was Jesse! Everyone liked the "Globe in a Globe concept, so Jesse wins, that's right Jesse wins 50 pairs of Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus 3D glasses. Right now Jesse is probably beside himself, yet wondering what he is going to do with 50 pairs of 3D glasses, well Christmas is coming, stocking stuffers, plus the tale he'll have telling everyone how he got them, right?
Now the next 3 when I tally up the votes all basically came in second , so they all get a copy of "In The Shadow Of The Moon" DVD. Just send me your address and I'll get a copy out to you.
Well I've learned a lot about Photography contests, mostly that choosing the winner is highly subjective, it is an art not a science, so with all the knowledge I've gathered, my next contest, "Find And Photograph A Night Time Taurid Meteor"............not, no more contests for me, I'll leave Photography contests to the experts. The rest of the entrants in no particular order are.
JJ's entry was very cool, very artistic with the trees , the way she framed it, colors and all, very cool.
Genie caught a cool plane in hers, right place at the right time, awesome.
Roger's entry had excellent detail, very beautiful.
Again I like to thank all the entrants and the work they put into capturing what I think is a highly underrated target, the daytime Moon. Now if anyone happens to take an image of something fitting this blog, anything celestial, I will post it as readers choice photography and give it a mention, if you're so inclined, knock yourself out.
