the new year challenge - no processing!

For the first time ever, we asked members to submit unprocessed images - only cropping allowed.  The results across the board were amazingly good.  Frances Moore's "Shades of Blue" was the worthy winner, but other great images were close contenders.  Thanks to everyone who participated. We will publish some more from this competition next week.
