Congratulations!

The movement and the clarity combined with the black & white make this a work of art. Even the little everyday moments in life made interesting.

Congratulations Jason!

This appealed to me the moment I saw it. The depth of field gives it an even more ominous feeling than it already conveys. The color scheme definitely adds to the feeling of darkness.

284 steps to the top of the Arc de Triomphe!!

This is an instant fav for me taken by Shelley. The ghosts of people and their steady hands make for a really intriguing shot of the spiral staircase in the Arc de Triomphe. Thanks for sharing in the Wednesday theme and keep climbing!

I love how the vibrant colors and low light conditions do not hide the emotion and expression on the singer's face. The two-toned microphone is like icing on the cake!

What a magnificent capture! It's as if the raspberry is floating in air. The color is a real contrast against the white. Perfectly timed.

I chose this photo as it almost looks like the stars are spinning. The matte color of the ornaments is a great contest. It's a wonderful photo in the spirit of the season.

I love the composition of this photo and the delicate beauty of the wings. My favorite part, though, is that stunning background. The blue contrasts so nicely with the butterflies, and it has the feel of a sheer batiked fabric. Congratulations, goldstardeputy!

I love these little guys. They make me laugh and they were a fantastic entry for the 42nd scavenger hunf to depict "the answer". I think only fans of "Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy" got where I was going that, but it was truly interesting to see where people went with that hunt. As steph.A says, "Chocolate is always the answer" and honestly, I can't argue with that one iota. Congrats to Steph.A and to see all her entries in a slideshow - click here.
