- My Personal Choices! :

Just because in my opinions some others should really deserve to win something! In NO particular order!

Faceless but not faithless by art-now
By art-now.
Just because this photo is so true and full of tolerance!

Shadow Label by Doubtful-Della
By Doubtful-Della.
Oh just a sensitive and very moving shot to me! And technically and artistically one of the best photos i've ever seen!

The Truth Will Set You FreeThe Truth Will Set You Free
The fire crackled softly, orange and yellow curling in upon themselves, alternately giving off then pulling in waves of heat.  The surrounding group didn’t seem to notice; they occupied themselves with thoughts of staying warm, of food that was still cooking, and of the darkness barely kept at bay.  Interaction was kept to a minimum, but for good reason; talking was a painful invitation to bitingly crisp air, movement became a gamble on how much heat would be lost.
I sat apart, observing them for a moment out of curiosity…not that they would’ve noticed me in any case.  There are some things one doesn’t want to see and so those things are invisible.  Delusional, I know…but if there is one thing humanity excels at, it is living in a constant state of delusion, not that my kind are truly any better.

What creativity in this text, i just adore all the symbols, i entered into the story immediately and all this looks so real to me!

Moonlight
She gazed out into the dark of the night. The entire sky was littered with stars, as if someone had spilled a bag of crystals across the horizon. However, the stars did not catch her attention. Her shining eyes lingered on the beautiful orb, shining powerfully in the midnight. The moon was full tonight, and seemed to take up half of the sky with its presence. The moon appeared not white, but a more powerful diamond shades that shone with a passion through the dark. It showered its radiance upon the earth with a powerful smirk at its own authority. The moon controlled not only the tides, but also peoples’ souls. And with a masterful existence, the moon was beautiful. A gorgeous creation that shared its’ beauty freely for the entire world to see. It gave freely its light and its magnificence, and everyone was free to awe at its absolute splendour. It lazily stayed afloat in the sky, arrogantly shining almost for the mere finery of itself.  The moon was the majesty

I'm disappointed that I didn't win of course, but that's to be expected with any contest. =P Haha. Everyone wants to win. :XD:

I am THRILLED with those who placed. :giggle: Such amazing pieces of work. I am honored to even have been compared to them. Pretty much everything showed here are the pieces that I viewed and said... "Oh dear, I don't have a chance! :XD:" And showed off to my friends to tell them how amazing it was.

Thank you for hosting such a lovely contest, I definitely would call it a success judging by all the beautiful artwork it produced. :)
