I count 35 votes with 13 voters so far.  It seems 2 people only gave two votes each.

It is a pity Kyo did not post the worlds photos on time: I am sure they would have been serious contenders.

Surprisingly, this year no photos were nominated with tops spinning in the hands of cute kiddos (except Tyler  ;D )

Each time I see the eclipse photo I think what the photo could had been if I had had a proper spintop with me, plus a camera with a telephoto lens . . .

I am one cute kiddo!  ;D ;D ;D

With a different lens, the eclipse photo could have been allot better. :-\

I bet that Mexican street vendor would never think that she is a top contender in a photo contest! :D

Fire breathing (spitting) is entirely different from fire eating (swallowing). Fire eating does not produce fireballs... it is more subtle, like this (this is Vince):

Final vote for 2012 photo contest
« Reply #9 on: January 08, 2013, 12:41:02 PM »

(this thread was merged after final voting).

The results of the first round were:

1 - Top Face by Neff - 14 votes
2 - Three Musketeers at Notre Dame (Ludo) - 10 votes
2 - Between acts (Mark Hayward) - 10 votes
2 - Creation myth (Neff) - 10 votes
5 - Help me spin this top! (Mauk) - 9 votes
6 - Mexican street vendor (MatiasStuntMan) - 6 votes
7 - Raising the Top (ta0) - 5 votes
7 - Storming the castle (trompillo) - 5 votes
9 - Czech spring (czyoyo) - 3 votes
10- Sunset eclipse (ta0) - 2 votes
11 - Rick and his friends (lincolnrick) - 1 vote
11 - Black belt skills (Mark Magyar) - 1 vote
13 - Loosing up (Mark Hayward) - 0 votes

A total of 28 members gave 76 votes so not everybody selected three photographs (I think it had to be either 20x3+8x2, 21x3+6x2+1x1 or 22x3+4x2+2x1).

The highest 3 vote gatherers go to the final vote.  But we had a triple tie for second place.  As Neff has two photos and it makes no sense that he competes against himself, Creation Myth will not run.

You have 2 days to vote for the winner.  This time the results will be hidden until the end. Good luck!

Here are the finalist again:

1_ Three Musketeers at Notre Dame (Ludo)



2_ Top face (Neff)



3_ Between acts (Mark Hayward)

So far, only 11 members have voted on this round, compared to the 28 who voted on the first round. Voting ends tomorrow, Thursday.
