Wow, now I know what others said about how hard it is to judge and make a choice. All were great shots and enjoyed them all.

OK here goes:

3rd place I have to say it is kind of a tie.
Universal Language by jbrunjes - I liked the concept and composition also it was hard to pass up the look of the cat in Are you talkin to me by jonwaz

2nd place - On the air by Bob Layne, I liked the picture plus the texture he added.

1st place goes to Radio Telescope by williame, I liked the polarized effect and nice composition. All yours for the next round.

Again all were fantastic shots and interesting concepts. Great job!!! Sorry I couldn't pick everyone.

Congratulations to William E! I completely agree with your choice Keith. That image blew me away, definitely one of the best images I have seen with any Lensbaby period.

Keith,
Thanks for the nod of approval. Judging is tough, some great shots here. I'm a fan of Kmac's "An Early Atempt", great image and treatment.
All, thanks for the feedback. I'll get a new challenge up here shortly.
