A special thanks to all the photographers that helped us find the People's Choice by voting for their favorite shots and to friend & professional photographer Olav Folland for his collaboration as the guest judge.

"All the finalists offered up stellar works.  For pure photographic merit, I would have had an even harder time culling though them than I already have had.  So, I'm judging mostly on the basis of 'creativity', which is of course nebulous so I'm coming from someone that literally sees hundreds of photos every day, and am looking for the things that really make a photo stand out from not only each other, but what other photographers are doing." - Olav Folland

Grand Jury Winner

"I keep wanting to think that it's "like this" or it's "like that"  but it's not.  The photo borrows from a lot of elements, but it brings things together in a very unique way.  The lines are superb, particularly along her legs, and that drip from her stomach - well, all the runs and lines for that matter -  is just a special touch.  Plus, I'm a sucker for high-key, which IMO isn't done in modeling enough." - Olav Folland

Runner Up

"Underwater model photography is an uncommon genre, and to tell the truth I can only think of one name that does it exquisitely, and your shot is well on par with her work. Well done, indeed." - Olav Folland

Runner Up

"At first glance, I passed it off as a 'classic' but the more I look at it I start seeing subtle details like the curls, and the posture, and a few things I honestly can't quite put my finger on that makes this something other than a retooling of late 50's/early 60's boudoir glamor.  Major kudos." - Olav Folland

Runner Up

"Heavy eye make-up has been done.  Glitter has been done.  Closeups, done.  But, you've tied everything together and shown how it should be done.  If I'd seen this when I judged "Orange" this would have been the winner, hands-down.  If I could pick two winners...." - Olav Folland
