Final Poll-Chalenge #52: "Birds In Flight"-Winner Artington

Unread postby aster » Wed Jul 03, 2013 8:59 am

Hi everyone, :)

Dear Mark has started this great challenge and ran the first three polls that present us with the qualifiers of the Final Poll.

Mark has been away for some good reason, I believe, and is probably busy hence my starting the Final Poll in his place. : ) I hope you don't mind, Mark. I thought this challenge deserved a clousure and at least one member's name pronounced as the winner.

I selected all entries that got 10%+ votes as eligible.

So, here we go! : )

Good luck to all!

Welcome back, Mark! :D

Hope life got in the way in a good way. : )) Good to see and hear from you again.

Always will look out for more of your challenge contributions and collaborations, as will from all other members, in these challenges. I'm sure there are lots of ideas/subjects out there suitable for our members' photograph skills and shooting choices. : )
