Set the topic as sticky while the poll runs. 

It seems like the Giraffe, the Thumb and the Topiata are the front runners.

Add Harvest and Teacher to those, with Sponge close behind. The race is heating up!

Ok, this is the final vote.  Just one vote per member this time. On the first round we had Dizzy Giraffe with 9 votes, Topiata the Day After with 8 votes, and a 3-way tie for third at 7 votes between Thumb Tip, Top Harvest and Teacher!  Wow!  Voting in the second round will last 2 days.  I will merge all the threads once it is over.

Topiata the Day After [Neff]



Thumb Tip [Nelson]:



Top Harvest [Jay]



Teacher [Ludo]

Airborn art was also one of my favorites.  As is Topiata. But my top pick is Dizzy Giraffe.
Teacher (I should have found a better caption) is a surprise.

Voting ends around midnight CST this Monday!

It is neck and neck to the line.  But many people who voted on the first round haven't voted yet.  And even if you did not vote before, you can still do it now (it has to be TODAY!)

Congratulation to Hrosik (žirafasik ?   :P ) on the win and to everyone else who contributed to the contest. We had a bunch of wonderful photographs.  This contest is always fun.

Daniel, if I was you I would print that photograph poster-size and put it on the wall of my bedroom! You cannot ask for a better spintop photograph.  I'll probably give you the prize in person in Prague  ;D

We'll start the 2014 contest as soon as anybody posts the first great photo of the year  ;)

Thanks to everyone who voted for my girrafe, especially thanks to you ta0, when you posted my photo to the contest, I checked the other photos too and many of them were much better than the photo of me. I didn't check the forum for past few days, so unfortunately I didn't vote for anyone, but my favourite photo would totally be Thumb Tip, but all photos looked very good. I'm going to print it and put it right above my bed ;D See you in Prague :)
