1st place
The place where stories and legends comes alive by Inkeri

Nikoneer: In the basement working concourse of my office building, where all the offices are located, there is a bulletin board. Right now, as is often the case, a 22x36 inch piece of paper is out there and a "story" has been started. The idea is that as people walk by they write in each next sentence. It works best when there is an image to stimulate their creative juices. This photo of yours is that kind of image, with all the elements needed to create a story just by studying the image. Perhaps that would be a good thread? An interesting image like this one that visitors to the thread could leave a sentence or two and thereby collectively write a short story. And to think your photo started it. 8D

(btw - good luck in the contest)

2nd place
Night Dreams by coram9

Roseman_Stan: Excellent work here Chris. You got all the creative juices flowing well with this one.

Tootles: I looked at this for a long time. :-) At first I didn't even notice the fairies (what does that say about me??) I looked at the girl and wondered what the light in front of her was.... then I saw the others. The drop shadows make the fairies look a bit 2D, but I understand they wouldn't have been distinguishable from their own glow without it. Very difficult. Perhaps the fairies themselves could be white shading to blue at the edge of the glows? Or maybe one or two could have been bigger (closer to the camera) so that it was clearer what they were... then the others could just be specks of light bobbing about in the darkness.

The best bit for me is the building in the background, particularly near the gate, with the soft night lighting... very atmospheric and detailed! A high level of realism that I can't achieve in Bryce right now. Nice work and a difficult subject. I hope you do well in the contest!

5th place the Forest of Ever After... by lilu103

robosys: Extremely impressive! I'm normally a fan of more simple images, but I made an exception here. The amount of work involved must have been staggering. Thanks a lot.
