There are total of 42 valid photos for this competition, here are all of them, including the above winning ones.

I won't put the photographer's names here (other than winning ones above), so you can discuss/criticize them as you wish. But please be gentle w/ your words, there are a lot newbies who sent in their entries...

some comments on this contest, looking at the nicks of the winners, somehow feel like this is more of who has been longer on the forums and who has more friends and not based on merit leading to unfair advantage. (although #1 truly deserve to win)

how some photos like #3, #6, #8, #10, #15(this is a total joke to be in top 15) made it into the top 15 completely eludes me.

#25, #34, #38 should have been in the top 15. i believe that #34 could have given #1 a good fight for first prize.

#2 i know flowerpot has a lot of friends over here but his photo while technically good, the idea is not original.

congrats to all winners anyway

lastly shoutout to #34 photographer: great shot!

Thanks for your comments, although your first point isn't really valid. Nobody but me knows who the original photographers are when the shortlisted photos were selected, and I didn't push much on which photos should be in the shortlist. As a matter of fact, the majority of the 15 shortlisted photos are from newbies (to the forum) instead of old timers :)
