Congrats to the grandprize winner, and runner-ups!

For all those that may find some place to complain about the decisions, just make it a pet project of yours to get a great shot or 2 in for the March contest, instead. . .

I personally think the second place picture should have won, but it's not my choice!!  They are all fantastic still.

Congratulations!

The contest has been very exciting and the anticipation of having one's efforts thrown into the ring for the possibility of winning a great lens is awesome. It's also been interesting to see what other people judge to be a good photo. Clearly I need to brush-up on my black and white!

Thanks CR

I can't even believe I got third place. I feel so honored!

The abstract shot is a combination of two acidic compounds that were heated and formed crystal structures.  The colors come from using two polarizers to bend the light waves.  I shot it using a microscope and had the camera attached to the top as the viewfinder.

Thanks again so much! I can't wait to enter into the next contest.

if i'm not mistaken, the location of the photo was taken in Chicago Illinois at the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower).  I know in this city is the only place with a glass balcony all around
