Comments

Congratulations to all winners! This contest provides a lot of inspiration and insight looking at all the different approaches to processing the same object. I learned a lot from it.

I know it's asking for a lot but I would appreciate if the jury would comment on the winner's images and point out what they liked most about it. It would be an additional incentive to participate - may be worth even more than the credits - and it would be instructional for all participants.

Thank you for this contest and to all participants.
