The theme criteria is for an interpretive rendering of a sculpture and its relationship to its environment in the sculpture park.

Vote for your favorite ... rank (and critique) them in a post if you like.

Tough choice but #1 first followed by #3.

I like #1, I liked it when you first posted it. The concept is how it relates to the environment its in, and #1 does that without showing the actual sculpture, to me that is more unique than photographing the actual sculpture. I am no juror or judge, but if I were, it would be hard to pass that one up.

Thanks guys.

My thoughts @ the pieces are that the sculpture park's most prominent environmental characteristics are the wooded setting, the pond and the proximity to other sculptures.

Each one was intended to focus on a different characteristic of the park ... hopefully making for a collection/set (not part of the competition) ... yet also stands on its own relative to the artist's original piece, along with an "interpretative" rendering.

It was 1 for me followed by 3. Not just because I liked your renditions best, but I also preferred the sculptures in that order.

No need to be objective with a subjective topic is there? :-)

The reflection has a mystic about it... The ripples, light and coloration work..

I prefer the third. I like the color and converging lines compo. The compo of the first seems a bit static to me.

Results came out today ...

"Aligned" made it through jury selection for display ... awards announced in a month.

Judges statement said he didn't like PS enhanced images ... I'm guessing he thought the first one was PS induced rather than the sooc that it was.

Thanks Travis ... that's the way it goes.

They sent the results out in two different emails ... "Aligned" was in the second one. Only 18 pics selected for jury out of the sculpture competition.

I also picked up one in the "regular" competition for "Crossroads" (B&W version) as seen elsewhere in here. 38 pics made it through (out of 234).

Thanks Travis ... yeah, I still haven't figured out how I should get my head wrapped around it. Part of me says be uber-excited. Other parts say to chill ... its one picture on one day (that'll just be a very long day) that someone liked. I'll likely land somewhere between the two.
