by darkjade68

THE CLOCK HAS STRUCK 12!!

Congratulations, and Good Luck to all that have Entered in the 2012 Dark Globe February Shoot Off!

The Judges have all gone into their Locked and Secured Chambers, with but a Candle and a Laptop to Begin the Very Difficult Task of Choosing Their Two Favorite Photos from Each Category.

Once they have Chosen 2 from each Category, they will Choose a First and Second Choice and then E-mail them to me… First Choices will receive 2 Points, and the Second Choice shall receive 1 Point…

I will then add the all the points, and determine the Winners of Each Category.

At which point, the Winners will be Announced on February 15th, just to make sure that Our 9 Judges have adequate time to make their choices.

In Addition to our Three Category Winners, There will also be a Readers Choice Award where The Readers can Nominate Their Favorite Overall Picture.

Though there will be Three Different Winners for Each of the Three Categories, there is a chance that the Readers Choice Award may go to one of the Three Winners… Which is allowed.

For The Sake of The Readers Choice Award, I will be Giving Each of the Following Photos a Number, so that when you Vote, you can Choose The Number of your Chosen Picture. Only One Vote Per Reader, and only for One Photo. The Vote Box is at the Bottom of this Post.

The Categories are Hope, Broken and People At Work.

Butterfly Union

by Armor

I tried capturing this black butterfly – dubbed the ELUSIVE BLACK, many times before. Then today, on my way home from a funeral I saw him mating with another. What are the chances. It goes to show that when one life is lost, of any species, another is coming into existence. So we all should have hope

 

#9

Passion Fruit Vine

by Nellibell49

I chose HOPE for this passionfruit vine – because I am no way a gardener but this excellent vine has grown wild up my windows and now has fruit. Never had that happen before. A glimmer of hope in a rather hope-less year.

Chaco Ruin

I took this picture in June, 2005 at Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. I like the way the ruined building in the foreground echos the shape of the distant mesa.
