Glad I got mine in early before the deadline this year and was able to create one that noone , not even the all knowing Gwangi, will figure out is mine !

Challenge accepted!  8)

Figured as much, you have a natural gift for that

I don't know that I would go that far but it's certainly part of the fun of looking through them all. I get the feeling there will be a big turn out this year, I'm looking forward to seeing the entries.

Were you able to provide your normal high caliber entry this year Gwangi? You generally add to the choices nicely

The weather didn't quite work in my favor so I ultimately had to settle something I'm not as confident about. It was a busy summer, I bought a house and for most of the summer my dinosaurs were packed away. I have some really great ideas that will take a bit more effort to pull off but those will have to wait. I don't think I submitted a winner but I'm sure I'll get a few votes and rank somewhere in the middle, like I usually do.

I have never sent in a winner and generally happy just to be noticed and not bomb utterly, but you seem to always have some good compositions

Anyway I'm really excited to see the entries. The previous contests were really cool too, I could not stay out this year.
Gook luck everyone!

Likewise, I'm just happy to get some votes. Your entries have been pretty good too, you always photograph some really interesting and beautiful models.

I never win anything either. But it is still fun to do. :)

And that's it, the contest is closed! I continued to receive entries up to, and literally including, the last minute. Talk about cutting things fine!

I'll send out the last few formal confirmations tomorrow and try and set up the poll tomorrow too.

With over 50 entries this year, I can promise a biggie  :D
