Thank you to all the photographers that shared their entries in the photo contest. A big thank you to HDRsoft for their collaboration with the awesome prizes. Photomatix Pro merges photographs taken at varying exposure levels into a single HDR image that reveals both highlight and shadow details, with options for automatically aligning hand-held photographs, removing ghosts, and reducing noise and chromatic aberrations. Merged images can then be adjusted by a range of options and settings to get the look that users want. The program also includes a plugin for Adobe Lightroom. A big thank you to Penny Chuchu for her collaboration as a guest judge. "I was born in Hong Kong and live in New York. I studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York as a milliner. As a Hong Kong native and New Yorker for the past 15 years, urban settings have constantly inspired my work. Being surrounded by incredible architecture, coupled with my longstanding interest in fashion, prompts me to dissect my perception of these buildings and apply those concepts into the structure of my hats. When I seek materials for the architecture of my hats, I wonder how I can turn steel into lace, and lace into steel." - Penny
