I am so sorry it took awhile to post this. I am getting ready for a trip to Cancun and have been frantically scrambling to get things done.
This was quite the hard contest to judge. Several people entered images that were made with layers (only basic photo editing was allowed) and several entered more than one entry (only one entry per person). Sadly, I had to disqualify some really good entries due to not following the rules. Once again, I had so many excellent entries that I have spent days wringing my hands trying to figure out a winner. With thanks to Diane my sister for helping me judge this.
Before I announce the winners, for those of you interested, we are trying to put together a calender for the Blue Moon Contest and another one for the Moon Contest. Since calenders are new, the details are being worked out. Let me know if you would be interested in these calenders. They are trying to decide how they would divide up the payment to the artist for each picture.
Anyway, with out any further babbling, here are the winners:
First Place goes to: Paul Tait’s “Full Moon”
The 2 second place winners are:
Mungo Lunette at full moon by Cheryl Ridge
Solitude by Lumineux
The 5-3rd place winners are:
Moon Shadow by Joan Smart
Moon Storm by Paul Jeston
Last Nights Moon by SuniPruett

A big congratulations to the winners!! Prizes are as follows:
First place: A large size mounted print of their entry (if the winning entry is not large enough for the large size, they will get the next size down)
Two 2nd place winners: Large laminated prints of their entries.
Five 3rd place winners: Each will receive a card of their entry.
