Late but still a winner - Raw Photos Winner!

Andygirl and I had it tough - your photography is incredible, truly.  We were emailing and DMing back and forth about this one! and THAT one! and how are we going to decided? 

But decided we did.  It was tough, hard work, but we managed to pick the one that captured PEOPLE.

But before we announce the winner...the runner up!

I am blown away by this.  It's people, but it's not. But it is. In such magnificent, wild, wonderful way.  Great work, psychmamma!

And the winner? Well.  The winner was brilliant. Made my breath catch in my throat. 

The winner is....

The next contest opens in September. 
Be creative.  Shadows, sunlight, black light, 
the subtle hues of sunset and sunrise, halogen, neon.
Well, you all continually surprise us with your
interpretations and genius.  
I can't WAIT to see the next set of photos.

Good luck!

  6. Just tried to submit a pic for the "Light" theme, but got an error message that the group has reached its limit. :-(

  7. Hey, Suniverse, thanks for leaving a note on my blog. I went back to flickr and tried again to upload a pic, and got the following error message: "Oops! You've reached the limit for this group. Why not head to the Organizr to clear out some room?" I did *NOT* remove any pix from the group. Over to you.

  8. D'oh. I just reread your comment on my blog. When you said "will be up at the end of September," you meant "will go live at the end of September." I misinterpreted it as "will be finished at the end of September." It's all clear now. I'll check back later.


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
