And, now, seeing as how it's actually February, THE CONTEST IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED.

Thank you everyone! Winners will be announced some time next week.

Oops, I just realized that I have violated the rules!! Do I need to take one down? I'll take the variegated 'High Color Mini' out of consideration then. Sorry 'bout that!

OK, the three judges (Brent, Tog, and Myself) have deliberated long and hard, so here in no particular order are the winners of the contest and what we said about them. If you're wondering why we three are judges, I am a professional designer, Tog was a professional photographer, and Brent is a horticulturist.

1.) Pitangadiego- Unknown variety flower close up

Brent said: I love the detail of this photo. Nice, crisp shot.
Tog said: Overall very good colors.
Beth said: The contrast of the colours, the composition, and the subject matter are fascinating; I love how the stamens draw the eye across and up the flower bud.

2.) Inoneear - Brazilian Unfolding

Tog said: Good centre of interest macro shot.
Beth said: Stunning macro composition, very interesting, and good movement in the background. It's also an good example of a pure monochrome composition.

3.) Simplybananas - Look Up

Brent said: To me this one has great composition and I love the color.
Tog said: Very good composition using the p-stem as a leading line.
Beth said: An interesting forced perspective, and I like the radial symmetry towards the crown of the plant.

In fourth place, things got a bit more confused.... But since it's my contest and I can do this, I'm going to be arbitrary.

4.) HarveyC - Bees

Brent said: Close in the running
Tog said: Good subject matter
Beth said: Bees!


BabyBlue's "Cali Gold", Pharazon's "Ice Cream", and BigDog's "African Red" were all contenders, and judges were disappointed at the withdrawal of BigDog's "Variegated HCM" and Rmplmnz's "Praying Hands Fruit."

Winners will be published when we finally have enough advertisers to print the magazine.

Great entries from everyone! It was certainly a tough decision to make. Now, if we could only get some darn advertisers signed up so we can print the magazine!!!

Congrats to the winners, although I think that all of them were winners. I can't wait for the sun to come back out to start taking pics again.
