Thank you, everyone! I had deliberately over-contrasted this image to highlight the color and certainly never expected it to "win" anything.

I've been observing for 40 years and have never made a sketch as good as Eric's. And David's Mars picture is outstanding, the colors make it seem a livable planet. Congratulations to you both!

Beautiful image Michael! Looks like a lovely blue violet flower rather than a stellar nursery! :waytogo:

Congrats to all who submitted entries, with so many great choices this was no easy decision.
