18 in particular really appeals to me; it's true that I am biased when it comes to the Battat Parasaurolophus, haha, but I just love the atmosphere!
I agree that it would be nice to do a "fan favorite" poll for fun after the official voting is over.


Fully agree with these two points !

Lovely entries and great variety this year, folks. I'm almost relieved to know I don't have to vote - picking favorites would be difficult.

Great entries this year.  Good job and good luck everyone. 

I asked my son witch one was his favorite, he made me scroll up and down, back and forth, then pointed to his own.   ::) :)

The picture of the Papo T-Rex staring at the sea is my favourite, looks almost like a frame straight out of a JP movie. I wonder if the ceratopsians in picture 25 were all actually customized to look like Collecta's Nasutoceratops, or if they simply used some color effect.

I've just realized that entry #12 is strongly reminiscent of Phil Tippett's "Prehistoric Beast", at least, to my eye.

Great entries! My favorite is 20, but for the second and third place I can decide, there are many great ones.

 :D Some very nice photographs! It's hard but I got my top three.

... By the way,  I like Nr.20 most.

I do agree - a very strong contender :).

I am curious to see whether this year's judges will be as unpredictable as our voters have been in past DTF contests.   

Like I said, there are so many awesome entries I would have a real hard time ranking them if I had to vote.  This is the strongest crop of photos in DTF history, despite the smaller overall number of entries...

Sooooooo many great entries. Congrats everyone.
Walking With Monsers:
[about Lystrosaurus] Astonishingly, their vast herds make up more than half of all life on Earth. Never again will a single species do so well.

Walking With Monsters: (Hynerpeton) To avoid injury the males demonstrate their strength  in a strange  push up contest.

Excellent selection of entries, congratulations! It would definitely be hard to pick a favourite, and thankfully i dont have to!  ;)
I have to say i'm very dissapointed i couldn't give much time to my own entry this year, unfortunately i've had to step away somewhat from the whole hobby these past few months due to so many other pressures building up.  :(
I'm happy to see it's still as vibrant as ever, as evidenced with this years competition, it'll be very intriguing to see how the judging works out...

Kayakasaurus - What is the next step in the process?  When will the judging take place and how long before we know the results?

Because a non-official poll isn't in sight, here my favorites ;)
For a own-build-diorama (no surprise) no. 20 and for an outdoor shot no. 3. And a very special mention to no. 2, 9 and 22. If there is a sixth vote, I would take my own. Six votes (like the common multiple vote system for a dtf-contest) would easier to give than less. But after this it would be complicated because there are so many strong entries.

Assorted Favorites: #10, #15, #28

The process has already begun! We're starting with the Best overall entry, after that is decided we will vote on the Best Diorama and Best Photography. It's simply a matter of communicating across four different time zones lol  :). After that results will come. In the meantime It's great to see everyone's guesses and personal favorites, so many great ones!

Great job everyone!

I am not surprised that a photographer like you would feel as you do about #2.  It is such a simple, yet beautifully effective photo.  One of my favorites, in fact if I HAD to vote it would be in my top 2 to be sure, probably my first pick. 

I am also quite pleased with how my own entry turned out, because it is the first time since I started participating in the contest that I was able to do something that I think 'works' in several different ways, so I think I kept my promise to create a photo that is visually interesting to look at.  Like I said, a lot of members really 'stepped up their game' this year.)

[I also have to add, without divulging too much, that I love the choices of the men in your family!!  ;) ;) )
