Great job, Peter!

Yildiz, that's some tough - and time consuming - judging.

Hi Dusty; :)

Tough?

Yes. In an effort to be fair and transparent, I felt I had to share my evaluations with you all as I made progress. Knowing the members makes it a bit more painstaking and there's always a good chance of being misunderstood. I truly hoped that contributors would not be offended.

Time-consuming?

Yes. Again, to be fair and to get my thoughts across, I had to search for every little detail that made a photo even slightly better than the other. Took time and I felt the pressure a little but hopefully didn't try the patience of the contributors. :) I wanted every and each contributor to know how I assessed their photos.
