    I know it's probably been done before, and maybe recently, but i'm interested in everybody's style. A pretty broad topic, so do with it what you will!

    I don't recall it being done recently, so I'm good with it. My picture from yesterday is a perfect candidate for this contest.

    Taken in mid-conversation. It may look posed, but it wasn't.

    Some really cool photos and it was very difficult to judge!!

    Here we go then, please note I'm just giving my honest opinion!!

    @keleko

    I love the picture, but why the effect?

    @razeus

    Nice lighting and framing. I don't really know what to think though when I look at it. There's obviously a story involved, but I can't see where it's come from or where it's going. Doesn't stop me liking it though!

    @indydenny

    Nice photo, not really what I was looking for though. It's more of a snapshot. The vignette done in that manner could have looked much better too. The harsh lines where the original photo was should have been manually faded out.

    @macrumormonger

    A nice candid, I wish I knew what they were all looking at!

    @captpegleg

    Cute kid! Nice lighting! Great expression too!!! It's a bit posed looking to be candid in the way I meant though...

    @deadbear

    Nice pic. I like it. Is the white balance a little blue or is it my eyes playing tricks because of the awesomely blue sky? Have you played with it?

    @rebby

    Nice shot of a cute kid! It looks a little posed though.

    @todbphoto

    That's what I'm talking about! Life in action! Nice find. It nearly won but genshi pipped you at the post. It was a difficult decision!

    @luminosity

    I like this! Really makes me wonder what she's thinking about! Nice black and white!

    @figtreehouse

    I like the idea, but I think it would be much better in black and white. I also think the comp is a little off. It looks a bit wonky, and maybe a little busy? More than anything else my eyes are drawn to the wood burner first and not being naturally lead anywhere else from there.

    @fcortese

    Nice candid! Tells a story. Nothing wrong at all in my opinion.

    @genshi

    I love this! And it's won! I love the movement and the mood and the expression. Really good photo. Well done!!

    @epb87

    I LOVE this! Could of been one of many winners! Like I said, tough choice. I think the expression on the dogs face is amazing! A great picture.

    @acearchie

    Very nice photo, really good background. It looks very posed though.

    @kebabselector (Good name by the way).

    This guy has a great face!

    @waybo

    Love the idea, The background is very cool.

    @mikedec

    Really nice pic! Cool depth and framing. I would've tried to add even more depth by upping the contrast and darkening the sky.

    @chappers

    This guy is awesome! Great face! Cool lighting and contrast. A Great photo!!

    @mattsepeta

    Really nice photo, really vibrant and interesting.





    Okay so
