    • So many amazing pictures! That’s a best contest I’ve seen in years.
      for some reason, I can’t see my humble entry for this contest anywhere
      on this flickr. And that’s little depressing 🙂 )

      There are a few really interesting pieces in the gallery. You must have a pretty hard time choosing.

      Anyway – congratulations, people! Looking forward to seeing the other picks.

    • I can’t find mine either. I’m hoping it’s because of good reasons, and it was not just forgotten.

      Hey guys – some of the file names got messed up while uploading, so we’re doing what we can to correct them all/find any others that slipped through the cracks. We’re doing our best over here!
