Contest #19: Fall Festivities

Overall winner
when time stands still......... by fogz

Regmar writes: "You picked just the right items to include, and you chose the surface well. The wood-grain enhances the autumnal feeling. The blurred green background gives the feeling that spring and its life is receding, as the colors of fall come to the fore."

Second place overall
celebrate fall # 1 by kodo34

Mimi writes: "This is so very tasteful and classy Kristof! A collage is a wonderful way to celebrate Autumn."
Purmusic writes: "Twelve thumbnail images, more or less combined into a montage of fall colours and shapes. And each is distinctly detailed and has great clarity of image... The colours are rich and vibrant and highly reminiscent of the season I truly love. And your main image is anchored wonderfully by a bouquet of autumnal leaves."

Best computer/fractal entry
Waiting For The Great Pumpkin by KEIFER

1bunnyslippers writes: "Looks like a winner to me - good scary pumpkin, lots of fantastic vivid colours. I like all those little pumpkins too. Makes a superduper desktop view. Lots of terrific textures found all over this image. And Terri's poem goes with this perfectly. Wonderful work by you both..."

Best photomanip
Harvest Dance by BlitheOwl

Purmusic writes: "Such an incredible texture that you created and incorporated into your submission here. A standout element of this composition for me. Add in the colour palette ... intriguing, compelling and highly evocative."
Mesmerized writes: "Very creative and well the deep rich color, texture, that seeming isolated cabin, the harvest grains, and of course the presence of the bats above..."
Alexis518 writes: "Beautiful work on this piece, your combination of images really brought out a sure contest winner. The bats seem to give it the spookiness while color and harvest grains complete the theme."
