Dreamer has also reminded me that members are only allowed one guess per day each.

BTW no clues yet, it's too early. Dreamer seems to think this ones gonna be easy so let's just see if she's right...

lol! I don't think it looks that easy. I'll wait *some* before guessing. (Until my kid lets me sit down for a wee bit longer then a few minutes...) The question is how much (or if) the artists have been trying to mimic each others styles...

Ok, some wild stabs on my part here... I'm working on the senario that styles have been "borrowed" or submissions of pieces that normally wouldn't be shown are in here. I'm thoroughly uncertain about parts. I guess I'm worse at this then I was at the puzzle. And I don't think I excelled there either... ^_^ So here's my first try:

A philcUK
B MiLo_Anderson
C photoimagery
D mythica
E nmsmith
F jojomercury
G bjb
H trisbert
I regmar
J DigitalFX

i'm pretty sure about nmsmith, it's so his style.. but who knows, maybe they want to trick us!!!!
i thought about photoimagery because of the usual framing he makes.. and the sharpness of the image.. it does look like his style.
and for the others.. guesses :)

I agree about the style of nmsmith, my theory is that he's been mimicked. Who knows. Usually one should go for the obvious. I tend to do the opposite... ^_^ I'm usually wrong I guess. But the times I'm right makes up for that. :P I was thinking the same about the framing and the general setting on the B shot, it looks like photoimagerys style. I'm silly enough to think the contrast and grains / artefact doesn't look just like him. (But it obviously quite bad criteria to use.) On the other hand the image I choose as his is definitely not his style (especially in exposure)... I'd say go for the obvious and leave me to fail miserably. :P (I was thinking that if we eventually got some clues, my wild guesses could help ruling out some stuff...)

I thought about photoimagery for 'B' too, but his borders are normally edged with colour. As for nmsmith for 'G', I went for the obvious bait, but in the back of my mind I was wondering whether it was a red herring!

lol! :P Are you sure... Have you ever seen a photoimagery image with so undefined contrast (and quite a bit artefacts in the dark areas)? (Not that I doubt he can make such images... I just believe he's never showing us the pieces that are not perfect...) Well, I'm going to put him in the same spot as you did in my next guess anyway... ^_^ The most obvious for me is DigitalFX.

The trouble with all this is that the more you stare at them the more you see that just doesn't quite seem right. For instance the only one so far not to go with jojo on f is Tina. The more I look the more I wonder. Joseph does fabulous windows. BUT they usually include the full window and are just as much about the light play inside the room as the window itself. AAARG! If I look too long I find a reason NOT to go with each one!

I can't not believe that 'G' is not nmsmith ... it has to be.

Besides, it it isn't, I just left a glowing tribute on an imposters' work, lol

'A' could be mayne, or as an outside heidlerr. But, I am leaning towards mayne.

Paul_Gerritsen may be a strong contender for a couple. 'H' as one and possibly one of the falls picks ... I have to stop my brain hurts ... ok, later then fellow sleuths ... maybe the gods will be more generous tomorrow in indicating how the lists are doing.

And ... I was just reminded, ever so humbly that that portion of the contest had already decided the artists involved, lol ... really lol'ing on that one.

So ... you are telling me that mayne and heidlerr are not any of the artists?
Nvm ... lolol@hisownself. Revealing this, I hope doesn't cast dispersions on my other guesses, lol.

:) Thank you and thanks all that helped me crack the riddles and the guessing game!

Yea, that would have been a much tougher call to make. You are equal to most of the photographic oriented artists on the Guesstheartist team, but it was already some tough calls to make among you. Some things seemed obvious but most artists had some "angle" on their pieces that they don't usually present. There are a few artists that can be as proficient as you in 3D art, you and mythica can do some stuff that are in the same genre... If you hadn't used more or less the same design as base that you did on "SpacePod" I would perhaps have doubted more about which your piece was.
