The Result - E-System Users 2009 End Of Year Challenge

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It has been my pleasure and privilege to run this competition.

I hope you have all enjoyed taking part, whether sending in your pictures, voting or both. I know that a lot of people have had great fun looking at the entries and choosing their favourites; a very difficult choice.

So here they are:

#1 Passing Storm by theMusicMan with 35 points




#2 Winter Shadows Ringneck with 21 points




#3 Berkshire dawn panorama by Snaarman with 18 points



Well done guys. I have taken the liberty of hand crafting some Avatars for you which you can use with pride (if you wish)



(I will be emailing them to you using the email address supplied at time of entry.)

I will be posting further information soon, as I’m sure you would like to know where your entry or favourite photo came.

There will also be information on how many people voted and what cameras were used for example. At the same time I hope no one contests the results, as I have been honest and fair, and so too have been the people who have voted. After all this was just for fun.

All this extra information I will post later this week giving the top three guys time to really celebrate their success.

Well done guys!

Graydon

Well I voted for two of the three so, although none of them are mine, my taste can't be all bad.

Well done to all three winners.

Re: The Result - E-System Users 2009 End Of Year Challenge

Wow! That was a shock. I scrolled down the first two. Yes, I say, both very worthy pictures, I voted for them myself.

Then I fell across the third one.. which I didn't vote for...

Most honoured to get third place, particularly behind those first two excellent images.

Thanks one and all

Pete

I voted for the winner as my No 1 and if I had beaten it there would be no justice ...wish I had taken it.

Still getting Silver is Brilliant...thanks to everyone who thought it worthy.

Cheers

Three brilliant photographs! Congratulations to all three of you. You have set standards which will be difficult for others to follow — but we'll try!

Well done you three and a special commendation to Graydon for administering the Challenge so successfully..

WOW, thanks everyone, am grateful and flattered.

I voted for one of the top three (not mine I might add), but I have to say there are some excellent entries in the competition and I am very suprised to have been picked.

Huge thanks to Graydon for organising the challenge - it's him who deserves the medal.

Congratulations to all the medal winners. All worthy winners. They must be because I'm sure that I voted for at least two of them.

Thanks also to Graydon for organising this most enjoyable challenge.
