And Now... without further adoo...
... selected from the thousands of entries received ... THE WINNERS ARE FIRST PLACE:
This fantastic image of a fork, entitled Scraping the Shadows
, was submitted by Aeoliane
When I first saw this image, I was floored!
While I didn't have any expectations on what people would come up with, which was kind of the whole point of the theme, I didn't expect anything like this!
Kudos to Aeoliane for a job well done!
She wins a 1 year deviantART subscription SECOND PLACE:
This great image of a vase, reflected in a TV screen, entitled Behind the Screen
, was equally unexpected
At first, this image threw me a bit, but when I realized it was a reflection, I thought: what a great treatment of a wonderfully mundane subject!
Congratulations to Mischx for this fun interpretation of something so
common that you could find it even in the farthest reaches of the universe! LOL
