after a prolonged judging (for which I am sorry, but we admins had some personal problems) ^^; , it's my pleasure to announce the winners.

Congratulations to all participants. We had some very good entries! :clap:

1st prize

family by m-lucia

The image also obtained 6 out of 17 votes.

Comments: The image has huge potential. It has a nice subject, it's representative and full of life. It has a good composition and an excellent framing. In addition to this, it also seems capable of telling a story, which is a rare thing in photos.

:bulletblack: 500 points

3rd prize

Apocrita Showdown by Miguel-Santos
by Miguel-Santos

Comments: Original, full of potential and with great framing. It presents an interesting perspective upon an uncommon subject and manages to get out of the ordinary.

4th place

Over the Dock by er111a
by er111a

The image obtained 1 vote.

Comments: A powerful shot which immediately draws attention. The grain noise on the clouds is a bit disturbing, but adds a nice effect to the image.

5th place

Group Info

The main purpose of this group is reflected in the name: Critiques and Contests. There are regular contests, some with themes and some "open" for photographers to submit their work to. As well as the contests, members are encouraged to both submit their photography for critique from other members, and to write thoughtful and constructive assessments of their fellow members' work. I would say that this group is one for learning photographers, or people who want to improve their photography and want critique, or people who enjoy getting feedback on their work.

Where's the next competition here? it's been a while since the second one...
GrauWeiss Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
I'm afraid not all prizes have been awarded for the second competition :ashamed:. So, since ~ShortAndSnappy has some problems, I will award them by the mid of november when I'll also post new rules on deviations and start the critique system (as planned).
