I enjoyed the different interpretations on the "urban" theme and varying degrees of hustle & bustle (some are quite serene)
3rd place, thatkatmat: Matt, you always astound me with your processing. You can just feel the hubbub of activity around these guys while they are enjoying the meal.
2nd place, hawkeye60: I love the vibrant colors on this "corner store". These guys are probably shooting the breeze just like in any corner of a big city.
1st place, Cuypers1807: Great shot! And the title is apt. Big city meets country charm. Those Segways are everywhere aren't they? I hope he's not about to give the horse a ticket...
Congratulations to our winners! Thanks for playing everyone.

YEE HAW! I had to read it 3 times to confirm I wasn't dreaming. Thanks Ed! You have made my day! Congrats to other winners.
I will post the new theme soon.
5th of March 2009 (Thu), 06:18
Congrats Cuypers1807 :)
and congrats to all... as they all were great ;)

Great choices Ed. Those would probably have been my 3 picks as well. I enjoyed seeing everyone's interpretation of the theme.
Mike, were those some kind of bubbles in a celebration in Helen? I guess those are eco-friendly now.
5th of March 2009 (Thu), 07:26
As far as I know they are bubbling every weekend...

As far as I know they are bubbling every weekend...
Really?? I guess I need to get back up there and visit Helen more often. Is there a reason they do that?
5th of March 2009 (Thu), 08:27
Just to catch your attention I guess.
