I would love to have that 70-300mm lens - especially after seeing the Kenya safari photos posted on Canon Rumors.  But after looking over some of the awesome entries, I think my chances of winning the lottery are better than my chances of winning a prize here.  However, it has been great fun.  Good luck to all who participated!
What he/she said. Awesome pictures everywhere. Congrats to whomever wins!

I agree the contest is great!  I thought I had nice pictures until I saw some of the entry in the contest!  WOW!  The bad news is I will not win, the good news is I have lots to learn and this is the part that is stimulating...getting better at taking pictures.  Great contest once again Graig.
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

You said you will pick the 10 best in each category and then narrow it down from there. Will we be able to see which photos are the top 10 in each category, the winner of each category, or only the overall winner? I'd love to see the top 10, and winner of each category as well as the overall winner... Thanks!

Quote from the Main Page of Canon Rumors on the photo contest for the above posters:
>>On November 25, 2011 I will present the 10 finalists in each category. I have increased the number to get a >>better range of photographs to be judged.

Presenting the 10 finalists means Posting. :)

Is there any chance to make all the pics available in a nicer way?
I mean with any photo manager engine...

Yeah that makes it a real battle! 8)

Respect to the organization, since it's a lot of work to choose between all the photos

I'm, as all the folks here, overwhelmed by the quality of some of the pictures submitted!!!  There are some fantastic pictures in every category.  Looking forward to the narrowed selection that was announced for today, but wanted to say thanks for this contest and all the effort put into it.

Best regards,
Rafa.

I know the chances are so so small, but I'm still giddy like a schoolgirl.

I'll have the finalists to show sometime this weekend. It's been more work than I thought it'd be.

I estimate there are close to 8,000 photos in the contents, so I guess you have your work cut for you.

We'll see how much it will be photo contest or photo+ps/lr contest.
This is where things might get interesting.
