Before I start, I want to thank everyone for their support - this contest has been running for almost half a year and many of you have played a key role in either donating prizes or drumming up support within the community. It has been a devious effort to remember!

The only commonality in this contest was the fact that entrants set out to create panoramas. The guidelines were simple: use at least 5 frames, create a final piece no more than 3000 pixels tall / wide, and stick to traditional darkroom techniques. By August 1st I had received a total of 453 submissions which met the contest criteria. Stunning. Each piece was different from the last - different views, different subjects, different concepts, and different ways of finding loop-holes within the contest rules.

The winning entries reflect the difficulty of creating a panorama - from harsh lighting conditions, finding a sweeping view in dense urban architecture, or exposing all four walls of a tiny apartment in a 360 degree photograph. Many Deviants who entered (including the finalists) had never stitched a panorama together - it was exciting to learn that these individuals had challenged the cannons, learned something new, and created something beautiful in the process. Congrats to all.

Below are the winning entries - listed in order from Grand Prize, First Place, Second Place, and Third Place. The votes were enough to clearly seperate these four pieces from the rest of the pack - choosing a runner up would be difficult if not impossible. Between these four pieces the votes were close; the job of the judges was not an easy one and I would like to thank the following for their selfless work;
