Selecting the winners

Selecting the winners was not easy. I wanted to offer a fair chance, unbiased by my personal tastes and preferences so I got 5 other people whose tastes and opinions varied based on background, age, and even profession and asked them to rate each photograph based on 4 criteria. The results were tallied and the images you see above were the winners.

EDIT: I neglected to mention that it was not easy, choosing the winner. 6 judges (me plus 5 others) meant 6 different opinions. The images submitted did not make the choice any easier… I had to tally them up to see which pictures were rated the most and among them which were rated the highest. However, in the end, the winners were clearly the ones you see above. Congratulations.
