    The Great Photography Competition: THE RESULTS

    Well done, everyone!


    So here's where it stands.

    All of the daily contests are over, and good job to all of you for taking part. I know it was an effort.


    Here are the threads for all five days;

    Day 1 > Results > Winner: simonnz




    Day 2 > Results > Winner: Datura




    Day 3 > Results > Winner: vigano




    Day 4 > Results > Winner: pixelfuze




    Day 5 > Results > Winner: jcwacky




    The following entrants took part in all days and were therefore eligible for the big prize, a full, print copy of Sitepoint and Paul Duncanson's new book, Photography For The Web , the new Sitepoint t-shirt , and an expose on HAWK's Sitepoint blog.

    Again, well done to all of you who took part, and we look forward to your feedback on the contest, the photos, the book, and any other ideas you wish to tell us about. Thanks!

    Congrats Simon and to all the other participants, I enjoyed watching the contest from a distance. I wish I'd had the time to be a part of it too!

    Congrats simonnz! Well done!

    I'd really like to do this contest again. I had so much fun getting a mission everyday. My 5 year old really liked it too. He would say "What do you have to take pictures of today mommy?" So I hope you'll do this again or something similar. I certainly learned a lot just in taking a ton of photos and having them be critiqued by the judge. Thanks!

    Congratulations to all the Daily winners and to simonnz for winning the Grand Prize.

    I agree. This contest was both interesting and educational. I think I've learned a bit from both the great photos and the critiques.

    And I enjoyed doing my 2 missions to boot!

    Congrats simonnz, all your shots were top notch - a very deserving winner

    Really enjoyed this competition, been a real adventure for me. Took time off work and put a lot of effort in, and definitely learnt a lot. Thanks for organising HAWK/Shaun and will keep my eyes peeled for any other adventurous opportunities!

    thanks. That was really great to see. I have never thought that photo can be so good and quality made!
    I wish I can do the same soon.

    The one with the lady standing next to the warehouse is pretty odd. Is she unusually short...or is it just me? Great pic nonetheless!

    I'm guessing that she's naturally short. She's holding the pole lower than a 'normal' person and it would be a lot of effort to photoshop the background garage door, shorten her and apply a replacement shadow.

    Yup, it's a cool photo.

    It's by vigano, not by me.

    I would like to remind/invite everyone reading this that there is a REGULAR forum thread, updated each month, that encourages you to stretch your photography accumen.
    And, the most-posted thread in the Photography section (if not ALL OF SITEPOINT) is the every popular What Is It?

    Have fun.
