Winner, Infrared Cemetery by Tess Campbell

"This photo was taken while wandering through the older section of a local cemetery...a place I like to go camera in hand. These old stones and statues always make me ponder about the people who lie beneath...who they were and what their lives where like."

To capture this image Tess used her Olympus C-2100 UZ and a Hoya Inftared (R 72) filter.  No manipulation was done except to re-size the image for the contest.

Library Statue, Dawn M. McDonald
"Robert W. Hixson donated money to the Tiffin Public Library and they had this statue made to show their appreciation. This picture was taken in the evening. The only lighting used were the little lights that they have lit to show the statue at night and the lights on the side of the building. I like the statue it shows a boy and girl having fun reading."

Dawn used her Canon EOS Rebel 2000 and Tamron 70-300mm lens at f4.5 at 1/15th of second on a tripod to capture this image onto Fuji Superia 400 film and scanned it in with an HP ScanJet 5470c.

Surfing Statue, Everett Yee
Everett used his Canon Elan IIE and 
Canon 50 mm f1.8 lens to capture this summer sunset scene at Huntington Beach using Kodak Max 400. It was scanned from a 4x6 print.
There was no dig manipulation.

Honorable Mention

Black and White Angel, Jane Linders
Jane tells us that this image was "shot at historical Calvary Cemetary in St. Louis, Missouri where many famous people are buried including Dred Scott and D. H. Lawrence." She used an unspecified Nikon body and a 50mm lens at f11 to capture the image on Kodak 125. It was scanned with an Epson 1240 and slightly sharpened.
The Hand, Keni Lee
"While driving around in Washington, D.C., I came upon a statue that appeared to be coming out of the ground. This is the hand part of it."

Keni captured the image with his Nikon N90s and Nikon Nikon 24-120mm lens onto Kodak E100VS
and scanned it using his HP S20 scanner.
